Cost To Replace 5th Wheel Large Window

We have a 2008 Forest River 5th wheel with the large window in the rear. The glass has started to fog up or what they call internal condensation. The dealer tells me that the whole window needs to be replaced for a cost of $3,000. Iím going to check with other dealers but I just wanted to see if anyone has replaced one of these large windows, and if so what the cost was.

Not sure if there is anyone near you but I have seen adds from a company that somehow repairs sealed glass units that have leaked. May be worth investigating especially at that estimate

That price makes me think like a criminal and want to back into a stop sign or something and claim it on your insurance!....
