My new electric screen for an SE5A fitted well but after a year or two shows signs of misting in between the laminates right in my view. it will demist fine either side of my view (anybody else had this happen to theirs)

Did the edges get sealed before fitting?

Not sure what the warranty is for something like this - presumably you bought it via the club merchandise, so that would be your first port of call?

thanks jim
ive had it a while now so I would imagine any guarantee has expired (having said that its only a couple of years) it looks like the elements are not working in some areas of the screen. I had hoped it would last a bit longer though. I am going to wait until ice is on the screen in the winter and see what happens then.
