They changed it again.

They used to have lifetime for original buyer.

When I got mine done, they went to a ten year transferable BUT it was 100% the first year, then 90-10 labor the 2nd, 80-20 the third, etc.

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.

X2 on Suncoast Designers. had them do windows in our previous MH.. excellent work! kept that MH for 11-yrs or so after the repair. no repeat problems.

there are other shops doing this now...one in Arkansas and other in Oregon. google 'foggy RV window repair'.

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?

I guess that becomes a DIY project unless there's an outfit in your area that does them. it's been several years but when 7 of our windows went foggy on our previous MH our RV dealer would only replace them for $4000! I called numerous auto glass and residential glass shops none of which would touch the project. you could make some calls but I suspect you're only viable choice is to make the trip or DIY.

People take them out and ship them back one or two at a time. Still cheaper than the $1200-$1500 per window new costs.

You build a good re usable crate.

There ARE DIY kits on EBay. I’m sure there are Youtube vids galore.

Contact an RV dealer near you. I'm sure they have dealt with this issue before. Fogged windows are not a new thing.

They just did 4 of our windows. Great folks, did a superb job. Got done a bit early, and no extra costs. Lifetime warranty. We are very happy....
