Windshield cannot be installed

We still may have to make the trip down to Coburg, Oregon - we need to make arrangements first. A local glass company - Associated Glass in Lynnwood - was recommended to us as being familiar with Alpine Coaches. A conversation with him indicates that he is quite familiar with these windshields and believes the resin installed at the factory is often not cleaned out and causes this problem. We are taking our RV down this week for his inspection but we have not ruled out Coburg, Oregon. In answer to the question as to whether any slides were out when they attempted to install, no - all slides were in.

When my passenger side started popping out, a company in Chehalis fixed it, and when they pulled it out the rest of the way, the mating surface was dirty, and it appeared WRV never cleaned out the place the window and urethane glue/sealant was going to fill. When A-1 Coach Glass fixed the drivers side later because of a rock chip, they found the same thing on that one too! Both places required us to level the coach with the SLIDES IN. A-1 Coach Glass wants the MH to sit for 24 hours before you drive it or un-level it because that sealant needs to set up. I liked them better than the glass place in Chehalis, WA.

yeah i am unsure what types of slides you guys have

but if it was any thing like my setup .. my slide would have to be some where in the in and out or it would push on the upper wall

thats how they keep perisher on the upper seal to help stop water from coming in

when i had the furnt cap off the RV i used the slide to push on the wall to get every thing lined back up for the installed

well hope you guys find a way to fit it
