All, we used another place in Eugene, OR to replace the drivers side windshield when a bird strike cause it to crack across the visable surface I looked through. I have the reeceipt at home. First they gave me a better price once I had shown up, than quoted over the phone, they are associated with a glass supplier who supplies most of the MH windshields over the country, and I was able to stay with the coach while they fixed it and while it set up for 24 hours. Treated me like a king. I liked this place much better than the Chehalis, WA place and it was cheaper.

That is what I call the "Self Removing Windshield Option"

Call your local authorized service place or dealer and have 'em re-set it.. If the job takes less than 2 days.. SCREAM at 'em that they are not doing it right (should take 3 days) and then if the rig is under warranty make an appointment with the factory to have it done right

IF you are in Las Vegas.. Call Dave Simpson, Simpson's glass

If you are in Detroit DO NOT CALL Guardian Glass.

I have delt with 3 windshield re-installers

The wet behind the ears kid from Guardian who my dealer called said while scratching his bung hole "It'll probbly come out again" and he was 100% correct

Dave Simpson 2,000 miles later. said "It will likely hold for as long as you own the rig but I do not like the way the job turned out" and showed me what it was he did not like.. I agreed with him (NOTE He did a first rate job, the problem was a factory error)

He, and Wheeler's RV, convinced Damon to re-do it right.. So, We scheduled the job for when I was going to be nearby and when the G.L.A.S.S. Rally ended I drove the half hour to Elkhart and their glass man found out what the problem was, fixed it, At one point, when cutting the opening for the windshield, they used a straight edge.. You know what a straight is right, Looks like this |.. Well, theirs looked like this: ) )

ANd it's been 100% ever since.

Home is where I park it!

Additionally, the drivers side used to leak when it was raining, it does not do it after using the above vendor for the replacement. I highly recommend the above glass replacement vendor.
