Foggy Windows on Country Coach

Hi - I have a question about foggy windows. We just purchased this used rig. It is a 2004 Allure. Although we love our motorhome, we don't love the foggy windows in the cockpit area. We noticed a advertisment in a RV magazine for RVFOG DR. in Searcy, Arkansas. What I am wondering is if any one out there has been there and had them "un-fog" their windows. It will be quit a drive for us to go there BUT if they are the best...then it will be worth it. We are new to this forum so I hope I have done this right.
Thank you, GL Hoffman

GL,
Welcome to the forum. There are a couple of well know "de-fog" facilities, both east and west coast. If you do a forum search you will find numerous posts on fogged windows.

I have heard of RVFog Dr. but don't know much about them. We had our window fog problem solved by Suncoast Designers in Hudson, FL. If you are on the east coast, or plan to be, you can't beat this company. They do outstanding work and are very reasonable. suncoastdesigners.com

Good luck on your quest.

Talk to Coach Glass in Eugene, OR. They do windshields and side windows. They are just a few miles from the Country Coach factory in Junction City Oregon.

RVFog Dr does good work, but where are you located? There are several other places that specialize in this type of repair.

We had foggy windows on our Winny Adventurer and had a shop replace the windows. After the fact I found out (in this forum) that the window manufactor recognized the problem and would provide some assistance in the fix. Too late to do me any good, but check it out before you get it fixed. No one offered to repair the existing windows either. Apparently you can do that.
Lesson learned: Always check IRV2 before you leap. It is a wealth of information and I can almost guarntee that any problem you encounter, someone on this site has been through it and can tell you how to best get it fixed.

I replaced 2 of the glass sections in my 3 section passenger front window unit last month. Atwood made the windows, and they sold me new glass for about $130 each. I pulled the window out of the coach, took it apart, replaced the 2 bad peices of glass, put it back together, popped it back on, ion an afternoon.

No, I would not have old bad windows "fixed" the problem is bound to come back.
Sure wouldn't drive halfway across the country to get it done... my 2 new windows cost less than a full tank of fuel.

Thank you so much for all of your replies. In answer to one of your questions...we live in the Eastern part of Nebraska and if anyone knows of a closer establishment that does these windows...I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you again for your responses.

Swapping out the glass in an RV window is not rocket science and a local glass shop should be able to do it. Sometimes the dual glass panes themselves can be disassembled, cleaned and re-sealed, but the labor for that is nearly as much as just replacing the glass with new panes. Everything else involved is the same, just removing and re-installing the frames.

This process will not provide a permanent fix for the majority of users. Mini re-fogging will most likely occur and look like "breath on glass".

$28.50 for the directions... and then you still gotta go to walmart to buy the stuff, and then REFOGGING WILL MOST LIKELY OCCUR!
Sorry, new glass is cheap.

My double pane windows that are fogging up are only in the cockpit. They are made by Atwood. I contacted Atwood's Ms Sue Phillips and she told me there was a sub-contrator problem back around the year of my 2004 MH. I then asked her if Atwood would fix the windows for nothing and she said I was outside the two year warranty period. She said that the windows in the cockpit are flexed more than back in the main area and that is why they failed. She said they have learned a lot since back in 2004 and have better sealing now. She said it was a fixed price of $150 for each window plus shipping from Elkhart, IN.

I would be real careful of having a window repaired by a small guy that uses his own method and glue that it will happen again. I have decided that I am going to get my windows directly from Atwood. The door window is easy to change myself. Just need some of the double suction cup handles to lift it out. The drivers window is a little bigger and I think I will need help on that.

You can tell if you have Atwood windows by looking on the outside of the rubber seal because it will say Atwood.

Here is the Atwood info:

If you are being told that Atwood will give you money toward a new window...well, forget that dream. Before we accepted our coach, the dealer replaced two Atwood Windows. When the coach was ours, we had to have an odd shaped crank-out window replaced to the tune of $1300. Atwood would not offer anything. Extended warranty doesn't cover a window fogging up. No fog doctors in our area. Happy travels, Joe

I have a couple of fogged up upper pane windows-going to let it go until the spring. I'm thinking about just getting single pane glass replacements, just have to make sure the tint matches up...

single pane replacements would be a big mistake. It will be much harder to cool unit in summer heat. Almost any glass shop can order insulated double pane glass cut to specs from PPG or others.
