New window...it's clear!!!

I finally got fed up with the situation of having a double pane window that is fogged, creating a mirror like reflection of the inside of the coach when trying to see my driver's side mirror. So today, I took it over to one of our local auto glass companies in Waco and asked them to take it out and replace it with auto safety glass. The results were startling and the price was extremely reasonable compared to what I've seen replacement double panes. It looks better too! They allowed us to remain aboard and we had several visits from the owners, making sure we didn't need anything.

I have double panes in my stick house, that are 10 years old and have all failed. I do not think the lose of heat or cooling on the important windows in front would make much differences. Good move.

That's what I plan on when my windows go----cause I'm sure they will. With the heavy curtain up front, it won't make a bit of difference

The advantage of dual pane/pain (Double glazed) windows is thermal insulation (Heat Rentation in winter or rejection in summer)

However as you note, for cockpit windows, you need to be able to see through them.

If you get a roll of that silver stuff that is sold for just this purpose at Camping World, RV stores, and Home Imporovement stores.. Cut to fit.. You get the benefits of heat control, and the benefits of seeing what is about to hit you broadside... (Ok we don't want that broadside)
