Start of fogging window.

Well yesterday I got this in 2 windows
It went away this morning but I know it will come back. I had just traveled 1200 miles and the last 3 weeks that side of coach had been in shade. So now in sun it popped up. I guess in my winter travels I will be looking for one of the repair places. In Alabama now heading for Texas after first of year. Hope the picture works , Picasa keeps changing the way I can share pictures. edit
Well I see that did not work perfect if I right click and than I opened it in new tab got to be better way next time.

I can not link to your photos....but i have suffered the etched or foggy window thing. When the integrity of the double pane window is broken along the sealed edge ...moisture enters the interior of the window and will cause the desiccant to coat the interior of the window. You can replace the window, repair the window or just let it go. I took mine out cut them open and cleaned the interior then resealed and reinstalled. Others take the windows to a shop that does this for you.

I have had several windows "de-fogged", at the Lazy Days Dealership, here in Tampa. They charge about $250 per window. I have been quite satisfied with the work and none of mine have had any re-occurrences, yet.

RV double-pane windows are simply two pieces of glass with air between them. A water leak causes "fogging" There is a post here explaining how to DIY, with pictures, to replace the seals. Any auto-glass repair shop can remove, clean, replace seals, re-assemble and re -install in coach.

There are several places around the country that repair fogged RV windows. There is one in Arkansas, one in Indiana, I think one in Arizona, Lazy Days in Tampa and the one we go to - Suncoast Designers in Hudson, FL. BTW, Lazy Days used to send their windows out to Suncoast, but they recently started repairing them on their own. Sorry, I don't have the names or exact locations of the others, but they have been mentioned in the past on iRV2 so someone else will probably be able to chime in with more info.

Cost of repair usually runs $200 to $250 per window depending on size. Cost is a little higher if the glass has become etched so badly they can't clean it and it has to be replaced.

Fog Dr.

X2 on the Fog Dr in Searcy Arkansas. Was there two weeks ago and they did outstanding job on a window that had been fogged for a couple of years. Cannot tell from new.
