Resolved DK hardware has them back in stock. Ordered today.

 

 

2004 Dynasty. Fogged up small bathroom window. Have it removed and ready to put back in. Having real trouble location the spacers to keep the 2 panes apart. Have tried Amazon. Venruicks, NW Rv, various local glass shop, DK Hardware, Coach Glass, and Parkin to no avail.

Any suggestions as to where to purchase?

TIA
Mike

This is what I used when I did 3 of my windows.  https://www.dkhardware.com/black-3-16-wide-edgetech-super-spacer-66-foot-roll-alum-ss31666bl-vcp-1-product-89317.html  That was 7 years ago and they are still clear.  Here's a thread I did on IRV2 on the window repair.

That's exactly what I used too. Funny thing, I just noticed that I even reviewed it there which I don't even remember. I suppose it is on backorder as so many other things?

I also got the guide, expensive for what it is but it makes a nice, consistent clean bead. Used an air gun at 5psi. CRL SGT316 3/16" Polyethylene Sealant Guide

Yep Ivan,   I saw that "guide" and it is 'pricey'... $30+ BUCKS.....  I'm feeling I can do a good enough job without it since once installed no one but me will know how nice it looked.... I may try to build my own out of a block of plastic I have.... A reasonable price would be about $3 for that tool (IMO)

Agree, I have done 5 windows so it kinda almost made it worth it. Probably more to come, eventually.

I only have one to do... my entry door glass has 1/2" of water in it (plus the fog above)... I use it to level the coach front to rear... going to miss it when it's gone... NOT.!

That's a good idea, an unintended feature, haha.

I also bought the guide block but bought a Ryobi battery caulk gun, played with the feed setting and got it to lay a nice consistent beat. 

Working on the larger windows by myself was a challenge.  I had a work table that I used to take the windows apart and clean etc.  But when it came to applying the caulk I found that if I used a 5 gallon bucket with a towel on it I could set the window on it and then slowly spin it as I applied the caulk with my other hand.  Was able to apply the caulk only stopping occasionally.
