thermopane window seals

How much trouble is it to reseal the thermopane windows if the seal has moved into the viewing area of the window?

A do it yourself job or a glass shop?

A good bit of trouble. Some of the early 70's trailers had removable inner panes but most require the window frame be removed then the frame pulled apart at the seam. Lots of work. Some just remove inner pane and shim the frame to hold the outside pane in.

Good luck

Hi

No idea about this specific window. On a residential window, it's a "replace the whole thing" process. ( = there really isn't a functional repair. ). The big deal there is the window fogging rather than the seal moving.

I should update my question. My question is for a 2005 Land Yacht motor home. From pictures the seal appears to be a foam spacer rather than a hermetic seal.

We have the same problem in our 1999 Land Yacht Diesel.
What Iíve found out is the window unit must be removed from the motor home. Then the window unit can be disassembled. Drying between panes when reassembling is the problem.
Iím going to try in the spring.

I found this company that has the option of a new replacement window.
I may possibly go this route for my cockpit side windows.
