Window repairs

Lawn mower slung a rock and broke the window near the dinette table. (Happened at my house) Luckily my ins co (bluesky) had no problem covering the damages.
Reason for this post: dealership wanted $930 to install a new window, after a visit to a local glass shop, I removed the window myself (very easy to do) and had the broken glass replaced for $200. Reinstalled myself and good as new. Before paying the high prices, consider repairing yourself.

Local Glass Shops also replace the glass in broken mirrors at a savings.
The cost of a grass catcher is cheaper. Lucky it was not a windshield.
My cousin lost an eye when a neighbors lawn mower threw a stone.

My TT sits in the backyard when not in use and that is always my fear. Either my mower throwing something at the trailer or my next door neighbor shooting towards it. Nice job on the DIY!
