I am considering purchasing an 08 Dolphin. I wonder if there is an issue with the one piece windshield. I have heard some stories (on this and another forum) about one piece windshields popping out or cracking when you level the RV. Has anybody heard if there is a pattern of failures with the 08 Dolphin?

Lee, I have a 08 and have not had any troubles. Not sure about your 03 but my 08 has the front jacks on the same circuit, you can only raise or lower the jacks as a pair but they are able to compensate when adjusting the rears side to side. Whereas the rears raise/lower as a pair but can be adjusted side to side individually. To me, this eliminates the possibility of twisting the coach when leveling. To me, I feel there is way more stress on the windshield when going diagonally into a driveway that when leveling our coach.
BTW, We love our 08.
