Fogged Double Pane Windows

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the update Andy. Sounds almost to easy. Glad you have found a way to fix the windows. There is no good reason that I have not had one fog up on me to date. Just not my turn yet. So knowing its doable is good.

My friend it looks like you have some competition in the window repair field. Between you and Andy I might be able to fix one.

Hello Rich

This Argon gas and window tinting goes way beyond me but I do have my amphibian airplane also parked beside my Bounder.

The beautiful fireworks display we watched at midnight last night tells me 2013 will be a very good year. See you in Cody this spring.

Dwight

Regading the R value. I have 8 laminate windows, yes, with plastic between 2 layers of glass and in cold weather they are a river of water on the inside. I have 2 thermopane windows they only get slightly wet in the worst conditions. 1 thermo 48"slider is 18 yrs old, the other fixed 72" is 10 yrs. If I didn't have so much on my plate I'd replace the other 8. Traveling from 0 F. to 90F sea level to 6000ft.

receve,

The little bit of research I did showed a significant difference in R values and reflective properties in laminated glass depending on what material was used between the glass.

Do you have any numbers on the windows that may indicate what they used?

The laminate windows are marked. DCL SOLEX DUPLATE SAFETY DOT-19 DC-74

My thermo windows CRYSTAL TEM AS-2 DOT 440 CAN 2-12.1 M79 ANSI 291.1-1984

I had a bus conv. business 1986- 2006. The customers that I'm still in contact with have not had thermo problems. That doesn't mean there are no problems as many of the units have changed hands over the years. I used Storm-tite windows. The company has now changed hands & name I believe.

I purchased four double-pane glasses from RV Glass Repair Services in Greensboro NC for my Holiday Rambler. They had the templates on file and shipped the windows to me. My mechanic installed them and it was a lot cheaper than replacing the entire window frames.

I had the same problem in the front drivers side slider. I talked to the place in Fla. and they sounded very reliable but you need an appointment several mo.in advance.

I did a jury-rigged fix because I could not see out to use the mirror.

I drilled a couple holes approx .06 diameter at an upward angle about 1 in. from the bottom of the glass then did the same at the top. The heat (convection) vented the steam and it has worked for 2 years. Not very professional but cost "0" and had nothing to loose.

Good Morning to you,

I have the same problem with seeing out the window. Did you drill through both panes of glass or just the outer one?

Thank you for your reply

Steve:

If you replace the double pane glass with laminated glass, when you sell the Coach you will need to disclose the change and take the accelerated depreciation, or face a lawsuit for the cost of the next owner going back to the proper double pane glass.

Most used coaches are sold "AS IS - no warranty".  Disclose the change and take "accelerated depreciation"?  Does that mean lower the price?  "Face a lawsuit for the cost of next owner going back to the proper double pane glass"  Wait, face a lawsuit for improving the coach so the new owner can go back to replacing windows every few years?  May need a "lawsuit refresher", like going to law school in the first place.....
