Last winter, the window on our entry door, a dual pane one, lost its seal and became fogged. Because this window is the main window for Marti to look out, next to the windshield, it was a priority to get it fixed.
We drove across Florida to Hudson, where Suncoast Designers is located. They are a highly recommended repair facility for RV window problems.
There are over two dozen RVs parked in their lot, which provides free electric and water hookups while repairs are being made.
There are RVs here from just about every brand, from low end entry level RVs to even a Newell and a couple of American Eagles. Even high end Prevost bus conversions are serviced here.
Work starts here at 0630 and at 0640 a supervisor met with me to go over my repair needs. Ten minutes later, a tech came out and removed the door trim and all the screws.
Next up was another tech who removed the glass, it was glued in and required a razor blade to cut through the rubber like glue.
Because it will take a day or two to split the glass, manufacture a new custom seal, then reassemble the window and allow the glue on the new seal to cure, a cardboard panel was taped over the window opening.
Today, while we’re waiting for the repaired glass to hopefully be reinstalled (they recommend allowing 1 to 2 days for a single window repair), I’m going to take the tour of the plant where the windows are reconstructed. Cameras are allowed, so I’ll be snapping away to show how the windows get fixed better than new. Suncoast gives a 10 year warranty on their repair, so it should be interesting.
