Windshield loose

And one know of a good windshield repair shop in Muskogee or Tulsa, Okhaloma area? My windshield is not broken but seems to be coming loose. Sounds like a hurricane inside. Thanks

You need to put your motorhome brand/model type in your signature and THEN you will get responses from others with the same motorhome and issue fix. Don't be so eager to pay the fix it man. That's why this forum exists....

Good morning Wayne
I don't have an answer to your question about a shop location since I am 750 miles away from Tulsa, Oklahoma, but I do have some experience with windshields popping out. Yes it does get loud! We had the problem with a 97 Fleetwood Discovery and had the windshield removed and reset. We had ours done at a autobody collision shop since they do this type of thing all the time with car wrecks. It popped out a second time while we were driving to a Fleetwood rally and the tech at the rally knew exactly what was wrong.

From what I have read, windshield glass can pop out for several reasons, one being the leveling sequence the owners use. Make sure you follow the sequence Newmar recommends for your Dutch Star. Another reason, and the one that applied to our coach, was the lack of adequate windshield bracing. Fleetwood installed new cross bracing that held the front cap up and in a more stable position. We never had the problem again.

Good luck with your fix, and make sure you post again with what you find as the cause of the problem.
Good Luck, Be Safe and Above All, Don't Forget To Have Fun

Thanks Bigd9. Nice to know that I'm not the only one dealing with this issue. My coach is a 2000 Newmar Dutch Star diesel pusher. I believe I have found a shop in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma that is familiar with this problem. Supposed to give me a call tomorrow.

It wouldn't be the upper corner on the passenger side by any chance would it? It's popped out on my 2000 Dutch Star 3 times in 5yrs. of ownership. To have it done right, the windshield should be removed and repositioned. They can probably get it back in without the removal, but it'll just do it again. Also if they do remove it, have them take a close look at the rubber gasket. It could be ready for replacement, after all it's now 15yrs. old.. That's what I finally had to do on the the third pop out.
