What do you need to do to the Vista Views - I heard the PO did a really nice job creating making a seal....

The Vista Views on your trailer are very easy to fix - there is an inside ring you can remove, that removes the inner glass

Hi Ken!
The PO did nothing but outstanding work.
The coating between the windows (on the glass side)has turned yellow and is falling off. The tint sheet on the plexi has welded itself to the plexi and has bubbled, most likely to the heat. I have the curbside ring removed and my plan is to clean the glass surface, replace the plexi with new pieces and install new butyl tape between the two windows.

BTW, the ring and the plexi were not easy to remove.

Richard,

This heat is brutal. Is your new A/C a 13.5k or 15k BTU model? Seems like yours does a great job cooling down your trailer. My Dometic is a 13.5k model and I have no idea how old is it, but it really doesn't cool the trailer down like yours. I may need to recharge it.

Mine is a 13.5 Carrier low profile with a heat strip. I bought it earlier this year.
