One of the thermal windows in my 5er has gotten cloudy. The name on the window is "KTG". Anyone know if these can be fixed?

I'm gonna defer to Rich, above...
My suggestion was to close the curtains
Actually, I thought that you might try calling a glass shop, and seeing what they suggest, though figured that most would probably suggest replacement!

Those places that Rich suggested, may be just what you need....though I've got no experience with any of them.

Good Luck

Dave Root sells a DIY kit. Time-consuming and messy, but we (the two of us) did it, and our window looks great!

The Dave Root rebuild kit really does work, if you like to do things like this project yourself.

Here's a link to his website:

I shipped my driver side window (large, three window assembly) to the RV Fog Dr in Arkansas last fall. Ended up taking just a bit longer than I expected, however I am pleased with their work so far.

If you are that close (MS) I would suggest you drive up to them - shipping alone on my window was well over $600 for round trip.

The man to talk with there is "Lee" a laid back and take charge guy. I enjoyed his conversations and e-mails.

Good Luck

God Bless

I'm going to keep this short and say that I have not done this, yet. But my dealer, who is a seasonal member of my park and golf buddy, said to take a small drill and from the outside, do a few holes in the bottom metal frame at an angle, between the two panes. Don't break the glass. He said that it allows air to flow and that this simple fix might prevent more costly solutions.

Depending on where you live, getting to one of these locations might be difficult. Buying a "kit" to "Do-It-Yourself" looks to be expensive and you still have to remove the IGU (Insulated Glass Unit) from the frame, separate the inboard and outboard lites, remove the spacer, clean the glass, install a new spacer with the seal, etc.

Taking an IGU apart is NOT very easy. I retired from the glass industry and this would not be my first choice.

If you can contact the window manufacturer, try to buy a replacement IG unit from them. They have the glass patterns and have thousands of units built every year. The tint of the glass can be matched and having the glass tempered is also required.

You will still have to remove the fogged unit and replace it with the new, or go to a local glass shop and they should be able to help.

Good luck.
