You can put a heat fun on glass to dissipate the moisture inside but be warned, your wasting your time. The next day the moisture will be back in full force!
Anyone that is attending the Arcadia Rally can have their windows fixed right at their camp site.
Duncan Glass will be there and they do a good job!
Also I found if your parked and your window is in direct sun for long periods, it will fog up AND if you cover them with sunscreens on the outside ONLY, they wont! Dont use the bubble foil on the inside as this will direct the heat right back into the glass causing seal damage!

   Follow up: I ordered a new one from Prevost. They no longer supply the Lexan thermo version, it's now real thermo safety glass. $260 for mine and it arrived damaged from rediculously poor packing, so back we go again. My advice, go to your local glass shop. Gerry H  Huh

Gerry, I'll bet the UPS guy that got fired for tossing a package over a fench has been hired by Prevost! I dinged a 48" wide stainless panel. Scheduled replacement with Prevost Jacksonville on my way back to NC from Naples Florida. Prevost had shipped two panels just in case there was one damaged. Well there was one panel for the curbside and one panel for the street side. Now I needed the street side panel. Guess which one was damaged in shipping? Yep, the one I needed. The Prevost techs did not tell me they were using the curbside panel, which meant the rivet holes did not line up when rotated 90 degrees to use street side. So they were drilling ne holes in the framing so they could install the rivets. I was not a happy camper when I found that out. It was too late to do anything about it.

The purpose of double pane glass has more to do with fogging up the view for the driver on cold days with a busload of breathing passengers, than it does for heating/cooling efficiency.

Busnuts can choose to do otherwise, as we don't have the same interior conditions.

happy coaching!

Thanks for the info guys. Had the bus out this weekend and wasn't bad. Comes and goes. Been pretty dry down this way and that has a lot to do with it.
