Foggy Windows
« on: October 24, 2017, 02:05:41 PM »
I'm working in Delaware and living in my MH in New Jersey. I have 4 "foggy" windows in my 06 Adventurer that I would like to get repaired. I found companies in Oregon, Florida North Carolina and Arkansas that can fix them. Unfortunately they are along way from where I am. Does anyone know of a company that would repair my windows near where I'm working. I would love to find someone.
Thanks,
Ted
PS this forum is by far the best I have found to use.

The one in Oregon can send a kit for the windows and then any automotive glass repair shop can do it.

Be advised that sometimes the "repairs" fail - that happened to my entry door. It was "repaired" at a Winnebago Grand National Rally a few years ago and about a year later I noticed in certain conditions I can see a fog-like haze.

I found this one via an internet search. No personal experience or recommendation...

Is replacing an RV window within a normal handyman's ability?  Looks like they would pop out pretty easily but just like every other project that I start I am sure there are some hidden secret challenges to be revealed.

Looks like they can be purchased on Amazon and they all look pretty much the same.  I would imagine they are pretty standard sizes.  I am not sure how they hard held in though.

It's not a problem.  It's a project!

The side windows are simple enough, though a helper is desirable. They are not at all standard sizes, though. RV manufacturers order the specific sizes & styles they want and they get built to order. You won't find a store or warehouse full of standard size rv windows.

Atwood Glass and others make them to order for the retail market - just give the dimensions and type.
