foggy windows

My pass side front dual pane is foggy and wet inside. I want to pull it out and try a do-it-yourself repair. I've read someone's website who did this, but can't find it.

The guy was a single full-timer, he spends a lot of time in mexico, lives on a tight budget, and has a lot of cool tech articles on his site.

Anyone remember, got a link?

I really gotta stop getting new computers, seems I lose all my favorites every few months.

Hi Jim. I just finished doing my drivers side window on a '98 Bounder, it was really fogged and stayed wet inside all the time. I have more time than money so thought I would give it a try and if it didn't work, I would replace it. Nothing ventured/nothing gained. Anyway it was a lot of work and I made a few mistakes but it turned out pretty good. All of my windows have some degree of fogging so now I have the confidence to go ahead a do them all. My slider had a heavy coat of haze (calcium/etching or what ever it is) that was hard to remove. I tried several things to remove it including chemicals and rubbing compound and found that wet sanding it with 1200 grit sandpaper worked the best. You have to keep it really clean and use lots of water (running water best) to keep from scratching the glass. I added a little soap and very lightly hand sanded it out. I tried a vibrator sander but it scratched a little. The hardest thing I encountered was removing the foward frame (with the locking handle) from the window. I tried using a razor blade to cut it loose but it was very difficult to cut through the foam type seal, I tried heating it with a heat gun but that didn't help. I found that soaking it in acetone loosened the sealant enough to pull it off but it also took some of the black paint off, so had to repaint. I injected argon into the new sealed window to purge out any moisture that I may have trapped inside. I think I will test this window for awhile before I do the rest of the coach. Maybe the next one I will take some pictures and post them. If you want more information of how I did it, just ask.
Don

I purchased new windows from Atwood for my 1996 Holiday Rambler and replaced them myself. It is really not that dificullt to pull the frames and install the new windows. I did both windows in one day. The LH and RH side windows from Atwood were $140.00 including shipping.
Here is a link for step by step photos.

If they are that cheap... where or how do UI get the part numbers?
I've heard winnie will give them out, will fleetwood?
Everything I call them they want to sell me stuff, guess they get a healthy markup and need every dollar these days...

I only have the passenger seat window that's bad, 3 sections, all bad, visible droplets and a lot of that calcium stuff. It's the wife's window, new would be best.

Has anyone used Suncoast Designers, in Hudson Florida to repair dual "pain" windows?

The Tech Rep at Atwood told me how to find the part number for the window. If you will pull all the screws off the inside and remove the inner frame flange you should find the part number for the window assembly somewhere on the inner frame part. Mine was on a slip of paper glued to the flange. Take a look at the photos to see the inner frame removal.
