I HAVW 2007 coach with a one piece windshield that has developed a 3 inch crack from side to
bottum at one corner. IS this covered under wannanty? Does not appear to be from a stone. Thanks>TGF tgfewttig@milwpc.com

I would think if you can show there is no damage in the area it would have to be an installation problem. How many miles are on your coach?

TGF - Look very closely if there is small "divit" where the crack started. I suspect there is, in which case it is an insurance comprehensive issue. Since the crack is so small I would IMMEDIATELY get a glass repair person out to drill the ends to stop it from spreading. I have had two spread completely across the windshield because I didn't get them seen to soon enough. They will spread all by themselves through the normal course of the day (heating up and cooling down) until the windshield will no longer be salvageable. You can get the work done for under $50 which, in my case, is much less than the $250 deductable for a new windshield.

I second the reccomendation to get it looked at quick! It WILL spread! Also- search the forum for a thread about a levelling jack problem- there are some who have had the hoses connected wrong and the jacks "torqued" the rig while leveling, causing the windshield to crack. If that's the case, it SHOULD be covered under warranty! Best of luck!
