I cant find one with a clear window, all have either no window or 'obscure' window. If anyone can suggest something I would be most appreciative!!!

Mrs. Gabbi here again...

Thank you (Heal) for instructions on posting photos. Here are photos of the back door (Lippert) and the door label confirming the manufacturer. Maybe there is a model number in there...

The window is the useless frosted one. Atwood (Lippert - AP Products) sells a replacement clear, tinted window assembly kit with integrated shade, but only with a black frame. Tweety's sells it as do others: https://tweetys.com/ap-products-015-201 ... shade.aspx

I will be emailing Lippert to see if the glass will work with our door window, but keeping the white frame.

As for changing from clouded to clear window, we ordered a clear replacement from Lippert Company which manufactured our replacement door. Due for delivery today. We will do the replacement as DIY.

Mrs. Gabbi here...

While Mr. Gabbi was out with one of our visiting daughters, I was home changing out the window with the other visiting daughter I had read from other folks that the written directions from Lippert were minimal (kind of useless)...and they were. But I watched a couple of YouTube videos a few weeks back and found that Lippert just released their own YouTube video for the window a couple of days ago.

Changing the window was easy peazy! The hardest part was loosening the old window and frame from the door because of the silicone (or other) sealant. A few gentle hits with a mallet worked wonders. The new frame is black, as as the Thin Shade. If I want I can change the frame to the old white one - not sure I will do that.

One other thing...raising/lowering the shade requires opening the back door. On my old camper the shade was inside the screen door. I may put something there if it is a problem.

As with my old camper - this window is the best mod ever!

Hi
I am in the process of getting a new door from Lippert.
Alicia @ Lippert says they have a door, same as V00051931 but with clear glass, I will get a quote as soon as she gets the pricing on it, apparently it is a new item.

clear glass part number is V000666174, or will be, soon.
