    Hi all, sorry if this has been raised before but I can't find any threads other than those related the s***e windows 8. My Knaus has one window that has misted up between the panes. Not sure how to remedy this so I'm hoping someone can assist.

    Used to happen now and again in our caravan. It you just leave it it should clear itself.

    Glass windows or plastic, if plastic there is sometimes a little bung that will let them vent.

    If glass they need splitting and remaking.

    When my plastic windows misted up the dealer and the van manufacturer told me that it was quite normal and the damp would go away in normal use , and it did . I did not take the bungs out and the windows dryed out .

    Pastic. Will have a look for bungs as it seems to be getting worse. Thanks to all.

    If you are going to remove the bungs be very very very careful as the outer lip on them can become detached and the remainder can fall in between the panes when you fiddle about trying to get it out. No chance of then getting it out!
    It's generally a result of some condensation forming in the window after a cold spell. Wait on it warming up and it'll disappear.
    I urge patience and caution.
