Window replacement

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had to replace a window? If so, where did you get it? Did you replace it yourself or did you have it done professionally? Would you go to an RV place or just a window/glass place? I am just hoping we can have the panes replaced, not the window.

 

We have the side window with leaks in it as it has about 3 inches of water in it right now. Since we are leaving for our long trip out west in a few weeks, I was hoping we could find a place in Texas to have it replaced as that will be the first time we stop in a big enough city to have good resources available. Just not sure where/what to do here.

 

Thanks all...any insights would be appreciated.

Your windows where manufactured by Hehr. Maybe this will give you some information you didn't have:

Upbings, call Robert Monday, I just messaged him and he can help you. He has what you need on hand. Call me if you have questions and I will fill you in. I just left a voice mail on your machine.

Thanks, harm

Ok thanks,,,,for some reason, I didn't think they had any replacements in Tennessee. I will call Robert in the morning. What happened I think is not a crack actually, just a broken seal so not only did the argon gas escape, but water seeped in and stayed between the two panes. If possible, we wouldn't need to replace the whole thing, just fix it somehow. Since we are not terribly gifted with RV window fixing powers, we thought maybe someone has had to do this before and could give some insights.

I looked through the service manual and I believe it details how to remove the panes.

Thanks Steve, I am going to hunt up the manual this morning before I call Robert so maybe we can figure this out. I don't recall our manual having specific information like that in it, but perhaps I missed it. Karen

The people at the Oliver factory sent me a replacement window and I had it installed at a local RV repair shop for about $50.

Thanks, all

 

Looks like we will have a replacement window sent from Oliver and we will try and install it ourselves, but I like the idea of having an RV place do it so it is done correctly...:) We will look into what is available in the Tuscan area in terms of RV places that would do that for us. There was a place in Phonix area that would fix foggy glass but I think a complete replacement would be the best solution.

 

I'll let you know how it goes.

I would suspect any auto glass repair shop might be able to do this as well. Can't be that much different than replacing windshields. Just a thought.
