Need help with window replacement in door

Recommended Posts

My window gaskets and seals on the door finally gave out. I contacted Oliver and they said that they no longer deal with the Hehr company, makers of my door window.  Oliver sent me a link to an on-line company for parts and I ordered what looked to be a replacement. It came with a gasket and seal on one side but when I installed it the glass is not held solidly in place.   I have hull #23, one of the original Olivers.  Maybe one of you original Oliver owners has had to replace the door window and can help.  I want to use my trailer but can't travel with the window loose in the door.

 

Thanks

If you don't get any help here you might want to try the folks over on FGRV (Fiberglass RV) forum.  Since their campers can be somewhat older than ours, they have had a bunch of experience with door windows.

Is Hehr still in business? Have you tried them?

Pretty sure the new Oliver door windows are double pane. The early models were single. You may have received seals, etc, for a double pane window?

Good luck. I know there are companies that rework old windows. Jrbirdman found a good one, but I don't remember the name. You could try to message him.

Let us know what you find out. All of us with the older style door will look forward to your solution.

Hope you get it all figured out in time for your next great adventure.

The existing window system looks like it would be a relatively easy system to replace any other system. Think the only limiting factor might be the door thickness. Mine appears to be single paine? Also the newer ones are 'pebble ' surfaced to allow light, but not be visually clear. The web site on the glass sticker is : www.Lippertcomponents.com

A few months ago I replaced the frame on my door window because the original had become quite yellow. This is the one I used:

It worked quite well and survived a 2-day "monsoon" on the Gulf Coast with no leaks and no rattles.

 

I've also been in contact with http://www.rvfogdr.com/  because my rear escape window is fogged, but haven't scheduled a visit there yet. They may be able to offer some help.

After several years of fighting the yellowing of the plastic frame by wiping it with acetone, I opted to have a replacement window installed.  Edwin makes a door window with a white metal frame. It also has the feature of being able to slide the bottom half of the window up for ventillation, which comes in very handy.
