1973 Sovereign Window Issue

Hi, I have a 1973 31 foot Sovereign and I have a window question. This trailer has the 3 Vista View window at the top on the front side and I have redone them. There are also 3 similar window in the same location but below the movable windows (the large ones that open and close). These are also fixed windows like the Vista View. What are the 3 lower Vista View type window called and has anyone ever rebuilt them? I have one on the door side that has moisture between the glass and I would like to fix it. There are probably already threads out there on this topic but not knowing what the windows are called makes it difficult to find them. Thanks for the help.

I believe the lower ones - below the operable windows - are called stack windows.

Mine are single pane... so can't offer any advice on clearing the moisture.

This thread works for all double pane windows.

You have double pane windows. A couple of solutiions:

1.Easy but a little risky/ break the inner pane with a spring loaded center punch
2.Drill a ventilation hole in the bottom of the inner pane with a carbide drill
3.Hard-remove the window split the frame and rebuild it.
4.Live with it.

I have done solution #1 14yrs ago in my 1977 AS. Have not been disappointed with the fix. Break and remove inner pane. Purchase at dealers a foam liner approx 1"x3/4" cut a bit longer than circumference of window. press in to install all around inner window then trim a bit longer(1/2"???) before installing the last end Sealant on the exterior of window
