Foggy double pane windows on Expedition

I have a 2005 Fleetwood expedition class A.
Most of my double pain windows are getting a bad haze and foggy look between the two panes of glass. Has any one experiance this problem? I am afraid i am going to have to replace all the affected windows. Just being 6 years old it shouldnt be happening.

It's a common problem in RVs. There are now quite a few glass shops that will repair them for you, i.e. remove, clean, reseal and reinstall. It's cheaper than repalcing the window unless you do it yourself. If you can remove and replace the window yourself, you can get a new one shipped to you and do the work for about the cost of the repair.

Here are some good places to do the repair:

Check with your local glass repair shop. You might be surprised at how reasonable they can be for replacing your windows. I'm having 1 fixed this week and saved about $450.00 going local instead of through the dealer I purchased our motorhome from. And the replacement window comes with a 10 year guarantee.

If Atwood does not do any better at building replacement windows than they do making the originals, I would recommend using one of the repair outfits! I had Suncoast do a couple for us and they do a great job with a good warranty.

my passenger side forward window so foggy that i could not see the mirrors.
i read about a procedure in this forum about how to break out the inner pane and clean the window up.
this procedure worked very well. this window is not tinted anymore as the others are but visibility is excellent. the only cost was for a roll of duck tape, some large garbage bags, and a tube of black silicon sealant.
double pane windows have the benefit of better insulation. i don't notice any difference in my moho. of course, my new small single pane window is right next to my very large single pane windshields.
i made a post about how my dw and i accomplished this.

There are also two companies on the West Coast -- in Oregon I think -- that will remove and repair your fogged windows. One of them also offers a "do it yourself" kit for doing the windows if you feel like you can handle the job. The kit is reasonably priced and will do several windows on a RV.

We just had that done . . . one of our windows (door) was so badly etched that they actually had to replace that window, but the others were removed, cleaned, and replaced. Coach Glass (also known as RV Glass - RV Windshield Distributor, Oregon Conversion Bus Glass Supplier, RV Windshield Replacement) in Oregon took care of us and did a great job. They have power on their lot and you can stay overnight. They had to work 2 days to get all of ours done and they made sure that glass was in the windows overnight . . . also put up clear plastic because daughter and I HATE bugs so even though it wasn't raining, there are a lot of bugs in Oregon! Call them for an estimate before you go!
