Popping Nose of MH

What does it mean to pop the nose of a class a and can it be "unpopped"?

That's the term the RV shop used. My windshield came loose and he said the nose of the rv had been popped which made the windshield pop out of its track. The glass man said he could put it back in place but no guarantee it wouldn't happen again.

Sometimes fiberglass flexes. Maybe he felt it had been distorted or "popped" out of its original shape. Possible causes are a previous accident, rough road conditions or improper leveling.

My chassis frame use twist like a wrung wash rag going down drive ways and the windshield moved about and even cracked.
I solved the problem by installing front and rear anti-sway bars. No more twisting or windshield problems. Added benefit is better handling on the road, curves and exits.
