I guess like all RV’s, ours started showing the dreaded window fog in the double panes. Since we have decided to keep the current rig for the foreseeable future, need to address the issue. Now the fun part. Replace or repair? A little research into window replacement left us in sticker shock. Luckily, in my Google travels, I ran across a place in Hudson Florida that did repair. All the reviews looked good so we scheduled an appointment.
What a setup they have. For those coming from out of state, the have areas and hookups that allow you to stay with your rig while they do your windows. Luckily, it was only a three hour drive to Hudson so we dropped it off. It was very comforting to see so many nice Class A rigs when we pulled in. After checking in, we went over our requests with one of the technicians. These folks are window pros so I was looking for recommendations for a couple of windows since it looked like they had been ‘repaired’ by the previous owner.
We decided to do all the windows – 8 in all with 4 needing glass replacement. It took a bit longer than first thought due to glass replacement. Moment of truth, Lisa an I set out on the 3 hour drive to Hudson FL. I have to admit, I was apprehensive on the drive over. Once we pulled up, my apprehension vanished. The rig looked great. It cost a bit more than quoted, but that was due to additional parts need to correct the previous ‘repair’. It was totally worth it. They got it done on time and the windows (all double pane and defogged) never have looked better. SunCoast really are RV window pros.
I cannot say enough about SunCoast Designers in Hudson Florida. Great people and quality work. Oh yeah, by the way the - windows come with a lifetime warranty against any additional fogging. I hope my next upgrade adventure (Tires/Shocks) turns out as well as the windows...
Update / Tip: After getting a few trips on the rig, I noticed I was getting a lot more wind noise on the driver side window. Turns out Suncoast Desginers also properly cleaned and fixed the weep holes on all the windows when we did the repair. Once I installed weep hole covers the noise was gone. These covers block the wind noise put still allow the windows to drain water as needed. What a difference.
