If it wasn't for bad luck---

Traveling South on I5 just below Mount Shasta California today. As I passed a fifth wheel which was traveling in the slow lane I noticed his window in the front bedroom swinging in and out then heard a tremendous bang on the side of my motorhome.. I pulled over to the side and found where his window had torn loose and hit the side of my motorhome. It looks like it just exploded and most of the entire upper rear passenger side of my motorhome has glass shards embedded in it. It looks like it was sandblasted. Luckily I was able to chase the driver down and get his insurance information, Nice people who were entirely unaware of what had happened. Only the second day of what we hope will still be a two month trip. Not a good way to start.

Wow, what's the chances of that happening again. Good luck and hopefully that's the end of your bad luck. The remainder of your trip will be a great one and that was your bad luck for the year. Safe travels.

I lost a window out of a fiver one time years back. I didn't notice a thing until we stopped for the day. It was the passenger side bedroom window so I hope it did no damage to anyone else.

We had the same problem pulling through Las Vegas. A semi driver started giving me hand signals ... thought at first he was flipping me off for something. Then we realized he was letting us know we had a window flapping. Thanks to all drivers that help others. We got it fixed in time.

Wow that's a close call. Lucky it wasn't your windshield or someone behind him.
