Bought a new to us 2006 Fleetwood Bounder 37U. It has a couple foggy windows that we would like to fix. Obviously they are dual pane and the seal has failed. We live in west central Illinois. What are our options?

There are several options for you to consider. First, there are kits that you can buy to break the seals, clean and reseal yourself. Or, there are glass places that will repair them...don't know about your area, but I suspect a Google search will turn up some vendors. Or, you can do like I did and figure out the window manufacturer and order replacement panes that you can install yourself.

On your next trip down to Florida, Suncoast Designers will provide hook-ups for you to park and stay in your coach while the repairs are made to your windows. The usual turn around time is two days. They remove your windows, clean the glass, reseal the windows and re-install them in your coach. They even use water to test for leaks after the install. It is a very professional shop that starts at 7:00AM(maybe even a little earlier [emoticon]) in the morning. Suncoast Designers

I should have added that Suncoast Designers has a LIFETIME guaranty on the windows they repair.

Google one of the several companies that repair these to find out a shop nearest you that can repair cost is 2-300 per window ballpark. Some have reported good luck others have had the fogging re appear in 3-5 years. “RV glass solutions ” I saw also offers a thick pane laminated glass replacement .. it doesn’t have the insulating or sound deadening property’s but it won’t fog. They also ship to local authorized installers.

I just had the drivers side front window removed, laminated glass installed in original frame and reinstalled for less than repairing the dual pane. Same glass as the windshield and will never fog again. The slight loss of insulation value does not offset the need to keep fixing the darn window.

Hard to throw dollars at a repair that will just need it again in a few years.

Proper repair will last years.

Suncoast comes with a ten year warranty.

Mine were done three years ago and still look new.

I believe there is a place near Elkhart that repairs them. I paid about $300 a window.

I couldn’t be happier with Suncoast.

When I had my windows recently done at Suncoast Designers, they gave me a LIFETIME warranty. Here is the wording from their current warranty on their website:
"Suncoast Designers warrants to the original owner that any Suncoast Designers manufactured or repaired RV insulated glass only, shall be free of manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the insulated unit."
