alpine coach windshield

I recently had a broken passenger side windshield broken along with other damage that required both windshields to be removed. The installer states that I did not have a rubber seal around the windshields prior to his repair however I know I did as the rubber would cause streaks when washing or polishing the front end. Any help in proving the rubber edges existance would be appreciated. The coach is a 2001 alpine 36' diesel pusher Thanks for any help as this issue is getting very complicated with the insurance Dave

Yours is a urethane set windshield at least mine are the switch was made late in 2000. No rubber gasket. A layer of urethane should have been applied around the edge s of the windshield. If done right it looks like a smooth gasket. Over time the urethane is damaged by the sun and cause black streak especially while washing.

Hello & Welcome to IRV2 and the Alpine Coach Forum.

I have a 2001, 38ft which was built in late 2000. It has the urethane sealed windshield which also steaks when being washed and waxed. WRV switched from the rubber to urethane windshield in late 2000. I hope this info helps.

We hope to see and meet you at one of the Alpine Coach Association or regional Alpine Coach rallies.
