Window fogging

I have noticed that my large family room window shows signs of fogging/busted seal. I thought that was a problem that was more of the past. Have y’all seen much of this issue?
Would you recommend repairing the window or replacing it? Of course it had to be the biggest window on my “B” floor plan with the biggest price tag I am sure🤬🤬

You can't repair a seal failure. Replace it

There are companies that advertise window repairs and they have been featured in RV magazines. I just don’t know if the repair last.

Repair the window, it will be cheaper that buying a new one. I have windows that were repaired 10 years ago and they are still good

As stated, there are companies around the country that specialize in rebuilding dual pane (or is that dual pain) windows.


Tell us what part of the country you are in and we can give you suggestions.

If you get it repaired, there is normally no warranty with that since the window will be moving down the road. If they know what they are doing, repairs can be made. Replacement is the other option and you get a new warranty with that window. If you have extended warranty, they might cover the failure. You would have see what your exclusions are.

Fog Doctor in Arkansas

Both are excellant -they have free overnight rv hookup also



we just were at the fogdoctor in late April -cost is about $250 per frame ie 2 pieces in one frame still $250, they had my 4 windows done in about 5 hours and I was on my way - they have 2 year warranty on their work

Need the same thing near Chicago. Any recommendations, or do I just blindly search Google?

I used RVPro and they were absolutely incredible. I removed the window (dinette) and separated the cloudy glass (bottom portion, not emergency window) and shipped to ProRV. Jesus Martinez (ProRV) kept me informed and provided pictures of the possible repair allowing me to make the decision to repair or replace. We decided to repair and his work was incredible saving us from having to purchase a new window. ProRV then shipped it back and I reinstalled (pretty simple process). ProRV's process and customer service was absolutely fantastic!!

The window is now almost a year older and shows no sign of clouding. If you go to them, they will remove and discuss with you the options.

Please note, I am not associated with them in any way.

Hope that helps!!

I've heard some good results regarding repairing the sliding windows. In fact I repaired one my self using a nitrogen tank on our Allegro Bus. I wonder how well the repair would work on the flush pane windows. They are very thin and don't really have a separate seal and are just put together with adhesive. I'd like to hear some results from owners who have had the newer flush awning style window panes and not the sliders.
