Creepy windows
Anyone ever attempt to repair slipping window seals yourself?

Bruce, I watched them do it up at RV fog doctor at Searcy, AR one day. It doesn't look that simple. I could probably break something.

I've been wondering the same thing. I recently priced the fix at RV Glass Solutions (Phoenix and Coburg, Oregon). They charge about $500 for a two piece window. Interestingly, they sell new replacements for about the same price. The replacements...

Lynn, they are not that fragile, l did the glass replacements on an Itasca years ago. Getting the windows out and all the goo cleaned up was a big part of the jobs. And of course all the valences and blinds have to come down.

When I watched that day, I was mostly interested in what they did to prepare the glass to be put back together. They had another crew pulling the glass out of the coaches. If I remember correctly, they charge $200 a window. I think I was told...

Fog Doctor is recommended by Xtreme in Nag, the owner just had his personal coaches windows repaired there.
They say that the coaches they have sent there have been very successful.

I had two windows done at Fog Doctor in Searcy. Arkansas about six months ago. They charged $200.00 per window unless the glass needs to be replaced too then $300.00 per window.
They have 50 amp electrical and water hookups not sure about sewer.

I have used RV Fog Pro in Dallas and stayed in Grapevine at The Vineyards.  They did an excellent job.

I've been to two FMCA rallys where there was a company that did it on location.  They removed your window and essentially "rebuilt" it and had it back the next day for a very reasonable price .  I would like to know how well those worked out over...

The RV window repair trucks are all over Quartzsite- on a daily basis during the winter show months. One year, the FT next to me had several windows done, in the RV Park. I believe she has been very pleased . The companies from some of the larger...

John, I'm talking about replacing the seal in between the glass panes.

There is a place in or around Hudson Fl that does the work and gives you a warranty.

Bruce,
I found a couple of videos on someone repairing a window.  Video is in two parts.  Also I found a link to Do it yourself RV foggy window, creepy black seal kits for dual pane windows.  
Hope this helps, John M.

We made the trip up to Fog Doc in Searcy, AR and they repaired 6 of our windows that had the dreaded creep!  $200 per window and one was $300.  I believe it was the passenger side window for additional cost.  Very happy with results and they said...

So, I may consider myself lucky, to NOT have the Dual Pane, seeing what they cost in Repairs?  My '95, was the Last Single Pane Installs made by FT, of course!  I am Considering buying the thickest Smoked Plastic Sheets (4' X 8') and the...

Bruce,

Sorry it took so long to post this info as to another supplier of the parts you will need for the replacement of the window seals. Good folks to work with.  Who ever you get your parts from make sure you order the correct thickness for your...

I had Suncoast repair 11 windows 6 years ago.  Their guarantee is two years.  Their seals started creeping again at 4 years.  I wish now I had just bitten the bullet and replaced them.  A forever guarantee would have been worth it.

In the northwest and around the country I have found this company to have a great reputation, and they have only a two year warranty.  And my current FT RV has 100% of their dual pane "Motion" branded windows as well as my previous Monaco...
