    There should be a tab or pushed in sealing button somewhere, if in doubt just give Ian or Glenn a call and pick their brains:thumb:

    Hi
    Had the same problem with our adria, water got into the door unit.no idea how it got in but used a fine drill and drilled the outside low level where it could not be seen and drained it,the only problem we had was it left a water line mark on the inside of the unit.we haven't noticed any problems with the unit and its still clear to look at, hope this helps

    This is a common problem for people owning A class mh on the double glazed front windows and is caused by a break down of the seal causing condensation to build on the inner surfaces. As the mh heats up eitheir from outside or in the condensation evaporates. I have sought many solutions for this problem. The most expensive being to have the whole unit replaced at a cost of £3500 + fitting costs (for each unit) the cheapest is to have the inner glass remeoved making it a single glazed unit.

    I am still hoping I might find another solution but as the glass is now starting to become dirty too I think I might well have to resort to the cheaper option for safety sake.
