We've had windows done by an auto glass place that specializes in RVs. There was another option of a window glass place that could order my window from Winnebago to be shipped and then have an RV repair shop install it.

Based on our experience, apparently foggy dual pane windows may be able to be removed, cleaned up and replaced....or not. We had one done like that. The other had to have new glass because the water inside the panes had already crystalized and scratched the window panes (or something like that). Kind of imperceptible to me, but that's what they said. Same company that did the first window, so I believed them.

Your options include RV Fog Dr, Searcy Ak. 501-278-3015. Going down to have two repaired. They did one two years ago that looks new yet. I took that one out and delivered it. They are doing it all this time. Nice people and they have power on their lot if you arrive late.

Another vote for RV Fog Doctor. I will say that last year when we wanted ours done, we contacted Suncoast in Florida. We were in Florida and thought it would be a good time to have it done. Never returned our phone calls. Must have been on spring break. But when a company never returns a call to someone there wanting their business. . . . well, I will move on. So we called them in Searcy, Arkansas. They told us when to be there. We pulled in, backed up to their building and that day they took out, fixed, and reinstalled 9 windows for us in our 2006 Phaeton. It's been a year and they all still look great. One day, then we spent the night there (no $$) because it was late afternoon.

A lot of bull that they can not be fixed.was at Quartsize and a booth had a company that repairs them for 100.00 per window.
They came to my site and fix two of them. They were at the time sending a team to the FMCA rally in Ga. that week.
Will get their card and provide their name and number.
It's 3 A.M. and card in motor home.

If the company was BOSS, forget it. They are from Tucson and do terrible work. They are in Q almost every year. They cut new glass for mine and used a Magic Marker to cutting marks and the glass is not the correct size and slightly out of shape. Seal leaked within one year, they used the wrong caulking on the frame and they did not get it in the exact position it has to be to fit firmly against the side of the motorhome wall.

If anyone knows of a qualified craftsman in the Los Angeles basin, please PM me and post it here. Reliable Glass East of Los Angeles, doesn't have a shop, he is strickly mobile and terribly unreliable. I've been trying to get him out here to my place for months, left literally dozens of messages and only one reply. Craig is a nice guy but lousy businessman. There is a place in Orange County that charges $200 per window but very difficult for me to get to at 07:00 in the morning.

I was wondering if anyone has tried taking out one of the panes and just putting one back in with some molding and or caulk to hold it in?


Unfortunately, this is the same amount of work as fixing it properly if you buy the spacer and sealant.

Suncoast Designers in Hudson Fl did ours also, I will say this, one of the few companies in the RV industry that did what they said they would do in the time they said they would do it

Another vote for RV Fog Dr in Scearcy, AR. They are located about an hour northeast of Little Rick. Very friendly, fast & neat, hook-ups on site. They have done all our windows on our 45’ coach. Call ahead to book an appointment as they are really busy, for good reason.
