Ugly Windows

There are five windows that are starting to look bad. I found Dave Root who along with his associate have 25 years experience in RV Construction. Their specialty now is to repair seals on dual pane windows. Our windows are beautiful and look like this:

Ugly Windows

Greetings:
Obviously I have not learned how to post photographs along with a message.
I had all of our windows on our 2000 Safari Trek repaired by Dave Root on April6, 2010. He and Nick arrived promptly and worked steadily until the work was done. It was clear to me that they are familiar with all kinds of coaches. They used drop cloths in our coach and when they were done there was no evidence that they had been there except that the windows were perfect. They work well together, enjoy their work, and want windows clean and clear. <www.daverootrvglassrepair.com>
They removed each window frame, placed it in their workshop/trailer. The dual pane window was removed from the frame. The two panes of glass were separated. The old seals were removed and the glass was cleaned. A new and proper seal was placed between the panes. The frame and glass was reassembled. The opening on the coach wall for the window was cleaned and the windows were reinstalled with proper sealant. This is not a task for a do it yourself person.
Again I'm sorry about the pictures. I have some other stuff on drawer slides to share but can't until I figure out the picture thing.
Milt

Milt, from the forum help file on picture posting:
  • Click reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
  • Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 620 x 620 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 100K. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.
Bob

I had one window on my 06 Allegro bay changed last year because of fogging. I t was less than three years old, so Tiffin paid for the window and I paid for the installation.



This window was manufactured by the Hehr corporation. I just checked on their web site and the offer only a one year warranty. The claim the manufacture the highest quality window, which I doubt. If the window was high quality, we wouldn't having all this trouble with them. It sure is a shame what the big corporations can get away with these days.
One more rant and I will be finished. There is a person who advertises a fix for fogged windows. I paid $33.50 for this supposed fix, and it states in the paper work that this does not neccessarily solve the fogging and you have to buy equipment and a ton of stuff to do this yourself. I think this is a rip off. Shameful how these people get away with this stuff.

Ugly Windows

I had three windows repaired at Suncoast Designer's in Hudson, Florida and they remove the window and Valance if needed, take them apart clean them and install new seals (their own) and reinstall the window. They charge $250 for drivers side and $200 for all others. They have approximately 12 -15 RV sites with water and 50amp hook ups. A common dump station is also available. They are a residential window company but seem to have found a real nich market in RV's. They did a great job and professional operation all the way. When I was there there were few getting all their windows repaired and others said they had been there before and were having other failed windows repaired. If your glass is etched too bad and cannot be cleaned they have common sizes of panes in stock for $30 additional. They have a video at their web site to explain the whole process.

I had two windows fixed on 4/5/2010 at Suncoast Designers. They did a great job. I can not say enough on their behalf. They worked on 752 coaches last year. I have not heard one bad comment by anyone that has had work done by them. They are very busy and you need to make a reservation ahead of time, but it is well worth the time and travel. You can also ship your windows to them and they will repair them and ship them back to you. You can take a tour of the RV window repair facility, which is offered twice a day.
