wing windows

I have been trying to find information about removing the inner pane of glass on the front "wing" windows on my 75 Sovereign 31'. One side has about 3 inches of water in it which has remained the same for the 7 months we have owned it. The other side, the inner pane is broken at the bottom. If I remove these inner panes, what is the seal that has floated up inside? Do I need to replace this? Are new windows only single pane?

If anyone has done this and can give some advise, I sure would appreciate it.

Ron

Ron,
Had the same problem with the "Aquarium Effect" in my wing window. I drilled out rivits on the inside bottom of the window frame and the water drained out slowly.
When the weather breaks, I plan to continue to see if I can remove the inside window to clean the scum line.

Dick,
Thanks for the help. I guess I will give it a try. Do you plan to maintain the inner glass?

Ron,
Yes I do plan to keep the inside window. I ordered Vulkem from Andy, and will work with that. Will post progress or failures when as they occur.

How has your wing window fix gone?

Anyone else have a way to get rid of the water in the wing window without taking the window out?

I thought I saw a post a while back about drilling weeping holes on the outside of the trailer.

I guess my caulk job was not as good as I thought.

This may sound strange but don't the panes of glass have a seal to the window frame.
I have to wonder if the leak is occurring because of a bad "window frame" seal to the trailer shell or is it because of the "window pane seal" with the window frame.
Does vulcum really work or should you really replace the "window pane seals?
I have seen bad "window pane seals" to the frame and this caused the winows to fill with water.

Just a thought.
