Blown out window seal

Made the mistake of putting a pillow over my small bedroom slide window to keep the sun out. This morning I noticed that about 1" of the seal between the panes has blown out. Anyone know how to fix it? I have a 2004 Dutch Star by Newmar.

Hi Phil

I'm trying to understand how using a pillow as a shade would cause the seal between you panes to blow out. However, you might want to see if a local glass shop can repair it.

Give Dave a call here: Home Page he will send you the kit and walk you through it. That is if you can't stop by his place. He used to do several rallies annually. Might check if you two can hook up if you don't want to do it yourself

Do they put inert gas between the panes? If not, why don't they fog up with temperature changes?

No gas is put in a RV window. The only fogging that will happen is when there is a failure in the sealant in the window itself.
