Last summer, the driver side windshield cracked, top to bottom. A single clean crack thru both layers of glass. I am not sure what caused the crack. We were set up in a park when I noticed the crack. No rock chips. Probably operator error with the jacks while leveling.
This last winter the rubber holding the windshield in place developed some cracks. Last week in a heavy rain, while driving down the road, the windshield started leaking badly. Obviously past time for some repair work.
Last Friday I went to a local glass shop with my windshield information. This shop was recommended by the local RV dealer.
They gave me an estimate of $1,000 plus shipping and a replacement gasket for the windshield. The wholesaler passed on that 15 years for these gaskets is about normal before they begin to lose their elasticity and start cracking and losing their seal.
The wholesaler also passed on that I shouldn't worry if they broke the other glass while removing it. They have the other side in stock too. Sure hope I don't need it.
My insurance deductible is $1000 so I won't make any claims to my insurer unless the cost goes way above the estimate. Don't want to give cause for a rate increase.
