Fogging Side Windows?

Both my passenger and driver side windows, double pane glass I think, are super fogged up. Has anyone come up with a repair strategy or a vendor to order new?

There are several places around the country that specialize in rebuilding the fogged dual pane (or is that pain) windows.


Not familiar with California locations, but have used one in Arkansas and one in Florida.


I am sure a west coaster will chime in on one in your area.

Based on the age/value/temperatures in which I camp, and my budget, I carefully chipped away my inner pane, along with using black trim caulk to preserve what was needed for my windows to continue sliding in their tracks.

This is only a solution those of us with older rigs and small budgets would consider but I ended up with a good job and relatively clear windows. For those interested there is a thread or two on doing this.

Looks like he knows what he's doing.... what does he charge?

We planned a camping trip around getting all of the windows de-fogged. We took our coach to the Fog Doctor in Arkansas and afterwards we explored that beautiful state. After 5 years, the windows are still clear.

I recently had 5 of my windows done and watched the process as it was being done. Really very simple and can be DIY if you have time patience, and a low humidity area to do it in. Plan to do more of my windows later....

Get some 3/8" black butyl tape(amazon) and some in a tube. Take your windows apart and clean them with good window cleaner. Sand them with 0000 steel wool, carefully lay on the tape around the edges, and put window back together, filling seam where the ends of the tape meet with the tube of sealant. press window back together carefully. Reinstall window and enjoy.....

Of course this needs to be done in a low humidity env. Mind were done in quartzsite this past Jan outside at Roadrunner. When I do the rest of my windows I will do them inside my house when the AC is on.

We went to RV Fog Dr in Arkansas on our way home from TX last spring. Had ALL our windows done in one day at a very reasonable rate. We stayed on their lot overnight plugged in too! We would highly recommend them.

Dave Root has done several windows for me. Don't recall $ amount but was quite reasonable. Dave works in several RV parks in the greater Bend, OR area.

We had our replaced by RV Glass Solutions in Or. They are replacing them with 2 layers of 5/16 safety glass. We havenít noticed any real difference in temperature and will never fog up again.

Each coach is different as in windows sizes. Call him and send pic and he can give a quote.

If you are in Florida, Suncoast Designers in Hudson, just North of Tampa, takes the windows out and cleans them up and reinstalls them with a limited lifetime guarantee.
I just had my 1998 Alpine done and they look great!
They have hookups on site so you can stay there while they do your windows.
