Is Your Double Paned RV Window Fogged Up?

Is Your Double Paned RV Window Fogged Up?

Are your RV windows fogged  up and just about impossible to see out of?  Is there moisture and/or corrosion inside the double pane windows that is impossible to clean?  Having fogged up RV windows can be dangerous when you can't see out of them.  You are driving a RV that is quite a bit bigger than a regular vehicle and you need to be able to see out of all your windows for safety reasons.  Fixing a fogged up double pane RV window can be an expensive endeavor if you don't know how to go about it.  We can help!  So now that we have established the need to get these fixed then whats next?

Your first reaction may be to call your local RV dealer and price out getting new windows directly from them.  There is a few problems with this approach.  Reason #1 - Many RV manufacturers have gone out of business and no longer sell parts (windows) for your RV.  #2  If your fogged window is in the same frame with other windows this can make buying from the RV dealer very expensive.   The dealer won't just sell you the one window.  You have to buy the whole frame that has up to 3-4 windows in the frame.  The price to buy the entire frame is generally $1500-$1800 plus shipping and installation charges!  The frame and windows can weigh over 100 pounds each and are costly to ship.  Fixing your windows through the dealer can rack up the price pretty quick!

Here at Precision Auto Glass we specialize in replacing foggy and broken RV windows.  We can save you hundreds of dollars rather then going with the RV dealer.  We have the know how to safely take out the frame and just have the foggy window replaced with a new sealed and insulated double pane unit.  We are able to re-use the frame and the other windows that are in good shape.  Some repair shops will try and drill a small hole in the glass to allow the moisture to dry out.  This is not the correct way to fix this problem.  It is temporary and will still fog up in rain storms and take days to dry out.  Over time the water that gets in the double pane will leave calcium buildup and will keep you from seeing through the window.  The usual culprit of foggy windows is a broken seal that allows moisture to get in between the two panes of glass.  Since the space in between is filled with an inert gas (usually argon) during manufacturing, once the seal is broken you will need to replace the whole window in most cases to maintain the thermal insulation capability and visibility.
