HELP-2nd windshield in 10 months?

I have an '06 Country Coach Inspire that I purchased at Lazy Days last November. When we were ready to leave with it we noticed the windshield had a crack across the drivers side top corner. There did not seem to be a chip or star from an impact only the crack. Just like everything else we asked of them Lazy Days did not hesitate to put in a new windshield.
Since then we have been loving every minute in our coach until We got in to leave on a trip a few days ago and found the windshield cracked across the bottom corner of the drivers side. It was not cracked when we parked it at our house so it happened while it was sitting there.
Now we are getting the second new windshield in less than a year and neither time was there any apparent damage that might have caused the crack.
Is there something I should have them look for when they replace the windshield this time?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thank you,

You may have an air bag that is leaking down on one corner causing the coach to twist. This will put stress on exterior walls and windshield.

Thank you, I will have them check that. It does hold air for a long time when we park even after it sits between trips it shows air pressure on the air gauge. I hope that I find something like this that is contributing to the cracks and that this will be the last new windshield.

when you get a crack try running a sharp pencile down the crack. If it breaks the tip that's where your chip is. Also I store my coach with all the air out of the bags on a flat surface.
