Bill Harpo new guy on board

This is quite the collection of excellent experience and advice.
There is a wealth of info here at my fingertips.

I discovered iRV2 as I was looking for help with a problem:

WINDSHIELD ISSUE: it keeps popping out of the gasket (and whistling like a locomotive) or cracking the glass when sealant is used to fix the popped out area. 2000 National RV Tradewinds, 2 piece windshield with figure 8 gasket, center locking bead on gasket.
Its been a recurring problem for 6 years now. Sound familiar to anybody?

I think I should start a thread over in another section, like problems and fixes?

Seems like something is out of line. After six years somebody should have checked closer into the problem. At least measure your coach against another. Windshield frame is more than likely no square.

Hi Bill and welcome to IRV2.

Yo might want to put a request for info in the National RV Owners section - no doubt somebody there has specific experience you can use.

Sometimes the windshield frame is a bit out of spec, which makes it very susceptible to stresses and movement. You've probably already been advised on techniques for leveling (jacking) the coach to help avoid stressing the windshield? You will likely be seeing them again anyway.
