Where are you located?

If on the west coast, Dave Root is a good place to check : click

Some glass shops can do it too.

Or, you can even do it yourself if you have the time and patience ...I think Dave Root has kits for that.

Dave Root certainly has the kits for do it yourself. There is a shop just north of Little Rock, just check google. Be careful with glass shops unless you know they have the seals and parts. I think you can search this site for tips also and that would be useful.

...and that's why I said "some glass shops," vraines. I realize that not "all" are equipped to do such work.

For instance, we talked to a guy the last time we were up in Washington who had fogging caused by a bad seal in his RV entry door glass. He told us about wondering where to go and he found this glass shop when searching around the internet:

DK Boos Glass

However, at first, he figured they wouldn't be equipped to do RV applications just looking at their homepage. Then he explored their website further and found this page:

RV Window/glass Repair & Replacement

If he hadn't further explored their website, he told us that he'd probably would have skipped right over even calling them.

Turned out they did excellent work.

So OP, if you might be in the northwest, this is another place to check out.

To the original poster, and general good posting practice. If you have a question, first do a search of your issue. Chances are that someone else had the same or similar question before and there may be lots of answers out there already. If not, then provide sufficient information so that others might be able to give better specific answers or information. If more information is requested, monitor the post and come back so we, the potential helpers, know if you are helped or have the info you and we need. I asked this question about fogged window repair specifically in the Phoenix area and got excellent suggestions that I intend to follow up (search "fogged windows" for my and other posts). The question is still out there...where do you live, if it makes any difference to you?

I did mine myself. 90% better but some of the glass was etched which requires replacement. Even with the etching at least now I can see out. They just look like there a little dirty

I believe I can add a bit of information to your post if you dont mind. The shop is RV fog doctor in Searcy, Arkansas. I took my tiffin bus there to get an estimate while I was in the neighborhood on buisness. The two doors in the window have a white film etched into the glass he said they would have to be replaced at about 400.00 per window. The three windows on the drivers side by the driver have the seals broke and have moisture in them but not etched he can take them apart and clean then reseal them. About 600 for the three of them. Time wise the windows that had to be replaced he would take them out and cut the glass out. The windows had to be sent to Memphis tennessee to be tempered and DOD certified. If I took the windows to memphis for them ( short drive in my car) then the whole procedure would take about two days. If they had to put the glass on the truck to memphis would be about two weeks. They were busy when I was there so I am going to find some time when I am not busy and set up an appointment. I was there on July 26, 2013 so estimate is pretty current

I had a smaller widow on my MH fogging. Spent about 1 Hr taking the window and frame out. Took it to the local Automotive Glass shop and they installed tinted laminated safety glass in the frame for less then $50.00. The Saftey Glass is 1/4" vs dual pane original which is 3/8". They put a closed cell foam tape used in the industry to fill the gap on the inside. They say this is very commonly done. Got some very messy black butyl to seal frame in coach and it looks great. I'll try the larger windows next. If you're handy this can work for fogged windows and they will never fog again.

Well, in cold weather camping, you trade fogging up (condensation) on the inside of a single pane window for fog between the panes of a thermal window. I may consider single pane replacement glass if it will work out appearance wise and is considerably cheaper. For what I would spend to have my fogged double panes (5 and counting) completely fixed or replaced, I can run a lot of HVAC if the heat gain or loss is really that significant over single panes.
