Moisture inside dual pane windows.

I recently purchased my 2001 Itasca Sun Cruiser and find that moisture inside the passenger side front glass. (stationary one)
Is there a quick fix?
Replacement necessary?
Where?

My quick fix was to order a sheet of 1/4" Lexan (not Plexiglass which will yellow). I took out the window and old pane, and cut the Lexan to fit. You would not know it was not a dual pane without a close inspection.

Replacement is only necessary if the offending window is in your view while driving (in my case I couldn't see out my right side mirror). Otherwise, if you don't mind the ugliness it's not necessary to replace.

As I recall, they can be professionally repaired at a couple of place in FL or CA. Do a search on "dual pane," "fogged windows," or "Lexan" and you should get a lot of hits.

Your in the right State for RV repairs! You should not have a problem finding repairs being in Florida.

I had ab 01 Adventurer and for that window, there is no easy fix. The entire frame has to come out to install the new pane. If the little stationary window on the drivers side does the same thing, you can remove and install a new one yourself w/o removing the frame.

You have a broken seal on your window allowing moisture from the air to be sucked in between the two panes as temperature changes. There is an excellent repair facility in Hudson, Florida, Called Sun Coast Designers. They can fix your window at their shop while you wait and stay in your rig.
