dual pane fogging

we was camping last week in Shipshewana, In. Thursday I noticed in the rear window (dual-pane) a fogging up spot, center and towards the top of window. it started clearing up, and hung on little longer towards the top. So Friday/Saturday I did not notice it, had similar weather. Today in central mich, I did not see any fogging up. I figure it will happen again, way out of warranty on it.
So any ideas?

I used Suncoast Designers to redo my windows. Luckily for me they are only 1-1/2 hr away here in Florida. They did a great job at a reasonable price. If you are going to be down this way they have a parking area with hookups, so you can camp there for free while they work on your rig. When I dropped off my trailer they had over a dozen rigs being worked on. You can also send them your widows if you feel comfortable with the removal and installation.

This happens a lot with residential windows. The seals on the edges fail and you get condensation between the 2 pieces of glass. If you look around in your local area, you might find a glass or window shop that can take the windows out and reseals them. Probably an easier job on residential windows since many are designed to come completely out of the window frame.

I asked my local glass shop about resealing and he stated it was just as much work as building new. More actually as they had to be disassembled, cleaned, then reassembled.
