I don't know about the specifics of your coach, but my former '07 Simba had a TSB for the windshield. I was told the fix, after 3 windshields in 14,000 miles, would be a $3,000 metal cage. It had several Tech Ser Bulletins and several recalls, all of which were not paid after the Monaco Bankruptcy. I got rid of it because the cost to fix everything was prohibitive as far as I was concerned.

See if this applies to you: As I drove over uneven ground, I could see the upper cab sway independent of the lower portion/driver's area. This twisting and swaying is the problem, at least it was for mine.

I hope you find a reasonable fix. Joe
