33.3 windshield moves?

2016 Palazzo 33.3. Iíve noticed while driving over bumpy roads, even at walking speeds, it looks like the windshield is moving. If I watch the passenger side it looks like the windshield is moving back and forth relative to the side trim. I only notice it on the passenger side. Has anyone experienced this?

See as if you can get it to move with light pressure from your hand either from the outside or inside. Also Move to Florida and buy insurance.

Good luck and keep us posted

I can't say that I've experienced that, but what I can say is that the large windshield is simply 'floating' on the front of the coach, with only the rubber adhesive sealant to attach it. I'm not sure that I would say that it 'should' move, but it's not improbable as I suppose the front end 'could' flex some from movement.

Not to sound stupid but sometimes there can be a minor "wave" defect in the glass, more so at it's strongest curves. The illusion looks like the glass is moving back and forth in relation to fixed objects. if the glass is actually moving you should be able to test-move it with your hands.

The windshield and front cap are solid, no movement at all. I think the optical illusion theory is the best so far. I thought it also may be the verticals moulding moving. Why would I want to move to Florida and I have already have insurance, and an extended warranty.

I would think if the windshield was moving, there would be other side effects....Wind noise, water leakage etc. Ours leaked water from day one, turns out it was a very very small lapse in sealant in the middle top where the rubber gasket meets.

33.3 windshield moves?

In my experience.....
The windshield moves inside of a supportive cradle that flexes and maintains the seal.
An uneven driveway entrance, for example, flexes the chassis and the cradle allows for the temporary geometric change. Otherwise the stress can crack the windshield.
