sky light windows

I Have 3 skylight windows on my a/s all have problems, one has what looks like flaky window tint delaminated inside the 2 panes, one is half full of water and the other has alot of condensation.
What should I do to fix or have these fixed?

Run a search on Vista Views. You will learn more than you wanted to know.

I didn't know exactly what to search for and they didn't come up as sky lights or under windows. From what Ive learned I think I will put this project on the back burner until I get most of the other work completed.

Have three vista view windows in my 78 sovereign that were in same condition as yours when I bought my trailer in 2000. heavily siliconed on outside and insulation between window and cover. Removed silicone and used parbond to reseal outside. AFTER MUCH DELIBERATION I decided I would try what was suggested by someone on another list. I drilled a hole in the inside glass and broke it out with a ball peen hammer.
Removed all traces of the inside glass and put in a 3/8 or 1/2 window foam chalking that I covered with glazing compound.
Removall of inside glass allowed clean of flakes from window tinting and gave me a clear window!
My windows leaked But I didn't have water in between glass!!

2 New Old Stock Airstream trailer Vista View windows, 40", curved, tinted, double pane. Tagged with part #371175 and original price of $92.47. Some scuffing and scratching to aluminum frame, very slight dent in one end. In case it is unclear, when I say curved I mean it is curved across the short dimension for installation in the curved upper part of the trailer. The exposed glass is about 7". The tag also is marked 72-77, which I guess is the years these were used. There is some adhesive from tape on the face in one spot. I imagine this can be removed without much problem. Packed it will weigh more than 13 pounds. Figure shipping at, from 3254
