After a rock cracked our windshield on our 36mdds we had it replaced by RV Glass Solutions in Eugene. They are partnered and co-located with A1 Glass, who did an excellent job. They have 30amp power right at the repair location so I was able to spend the night waiting for "the glue to dry".
Engineer Mike if you see this you might want to add them as windshield supplier on the ACA website. Not only did they wholesale glass to WRV but also supply Monaco and others; so they know their stuff. (Andy would be a good contact if you need more info).
Another neat thing is that no matter where we are they can direct us to the nearest glass repair shop that knows RV (vs auto) glass replacement; they were pushing that service at FMCA. Toll free they are at 888-777-6778 or www.rvglasssolutions.com

We also had them replace the left windshield at the Rally in Redmond OR in 2007. Came to the site we were park at and completed the installation very quickly. 10,000 miles later, no problems.

Our drive side on our 2003 just suffered a crack from top left down 2/3 of the way.

Contacted RV Glass Solutions and my insurance company and should have an appointment with their Sacramento service center affiliate any day. The windshield was in stock at their Oregon warehouse and is being shipped to Sac.

Will post results after work is done.

My only concerns with windshield replacement is the installers. When we got our 2002 coach it had a scratch in the paint from having one windshield replaced. This scratch was deep and wide, trough the paint and fiberglass. The installer had done this while "cutting out" the old windshield. Just before we sold the 2002 coach, I had both of the windshields replaced. The delivery of the coach, to us, was delayed due to WRV fixing a new scratch in the paint from the windshield installation. I was glad that by having it done at the factory, I was at least able to have the repairs done at the same time. When I get my next windshield replaced, I plan on making it very clear to the installer that they will have to do any repairs if they scratch the paint. I don't seem to have been very lucky with windshield replacement and we all are oversensitive to the areas where we have had problems.
