Crack in Windshield

Well, had a crack in our one piece hr rv. Took it to glass solutions in coburg Oregon. Had a new one put in. They told us that one side was not installed properly and did not FLOAT.. It is now 3 months later, guess what, crack beginning in the same place. I know they warranty their work, but now I am in the Ca desert. Staying here for part of the winter. Anyone else have this problem.

I did see a post 2-4 months ago about this subject. Seems the RV should have been severely jacked up on one side DURING THE INSTALL .....That's all I remember.

I also belong to the Monacoers Forum and remember posts regarding windshields. Apparently the structure that holds the window in place is not sufficient. Reinforcement is required to prevent the movement of the fiberglass from moving. You may search the different forums for this issue.

Did the shop that did the replacement use a flexible caulk to install the window. Due to the large size of the windshields and the flexing of the chassis the windshield has to have the ability to move or float. If they used an auto type caulk which hardens this may have caused the windshield to stress and crack.

I had a small crack in mine as a result of a rock chip. Had it replaced ~5 years ago. I know mine moves because I can see how it has shifted every time I park.
