I placed a description with pictures into the Files-Exterior section here on IRV2....titled fogged window repair. Maybe it will help.

I see you are in Yuma.

If you go to Quartzsite in the next couple weeks there is a guy repairing dual windows and he has a couple hookups next to his business where you can stay while the windows are being fixed.

How is it we can put a man on the moon, but we can't make a duel pane window that won't fog over a relatively short time? Also, why hasn't the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration forced a recall on these windows, especially the drivers side window?

Ipad doesn't let you post the link but this thread is what I used to take mine apart, clean the panes and reassemble. My understanding is the spacer used is made with desiccant incorporated into it. It is really quite a process and nerve racking on assembly. I was worried sick I would get all back together and installed and still see a streak that I missed. I have never cleaned windows as much as I did those! Lol! It did look great when I got finished. 👍👍

I have a question about the passanger side of window. I have a half side slide window that will not close all the way and I have to put tape on it to keep rain out. Do I have to take the whole window out to fix it or can it be fixed in the motorhome. 1990 Pace Arrow

Try lifting the sliding half out of it's track so you can clean and lubricate the track and the sliding window.

I found the problem someone cut a pieces of glass to short because the window would lock so that showed me the window was as far back as it would go. So I took the window out made a Template out of cardboard put it in there and it fix. I then took the cardboard back out and cut a piece of wood and put in there untill I can get a piece of glass cut which I am fining hard to fine. No one will cut a piece of glass because it has to be a safety glass. Help anyone

Getting tempered (safety) glass is tough, it has to be cut and prepped before being 'baked' to be tempered. If the side that is too short is a straight edge, you might add an aluminum window trim piece to it to make it long enough to close out rain. Make sure the glass in question is really safety glass and wasn't a cheap replacement piece. Try taking it to a good glass shop and explain the issue, maybe they can supply a strip that will fix the issue. You could also call some of these salvage yards and see if they have a matching glass:

Other possibility is to see if original window manufacturer is still in business.

I had no problem getting tempered glass when I rebuilt my window. Just took it to the local glass shop and they measured and developed a sketch of the window size, corner radius, and thickness. They then ordered from another company that produced the tempered glass to size and shipped it back to the local company. I had it in hand in 3 days.

A suggestion: Google "custom tempered glass" and you'll get a long list of companies that you can order from.

I hope this info helps.

Fred
