Editor’s note: It is so often that you only hear bad news about RVs that it is rare that you hear positive things. A reader (thanks Jerry) sent in some kind words about an RV repair place in Florida where he had a really good experience. Jerry’s words are in italics.
My other project was foggy windows.
In many coaches equipped with double pain windows, a problem occurs when the gas leaks from between the pains. I went back to American Coach for answers and their solution is to replace the windows with new that probably have a one year warranty and cost 5 or $600 before freight and labor.
I found several companies that repair these windows but I’ve heard some bad on some of them. We chose a company in Hudson, FL named Suncoast Designers, Inc. After talking to them and getting several reference both verbally and on their feedback page from their website, I scheduled to have 5 of my windows repaired.
At Suncoast’s facility, they have spots to park your RV with electric and water hookups and welcome you stay in your RV while the work is being done. We left our RV with them for 2 days while we visited around Florida then when they called to say it was ready, we drove back to Hudson, spent the night in our RV, checked everything out including water leak testing the windows and when we were satisfied, we paid for the work and was on our way.
We had the work done this year in May and have been very happy with the quality of work, they way the cared for our RV, and the way they welcomed us to their facility. We felt right at home. Our bill averaged a little over $250/window but they look like new.
One possible problem to be aware of is that if the glass is to etched in you windows, they may not be able to clean them enough to be clear and the glass will need replacing. If that’s the case, they have the glass to replace the windows. It’s just more expensive but that’s an unknown until they get in to them.
