Sliding Window

My wife was running the string trimmer and broke the left side sliding window in our motorhome (1988 Holiday Rambler Aluma-lite Class C, 24'). I'm not sure if a local glass company can replace it yet. It shattered in a million pieces so all I have left is the frame the latch is mounted on. Will Lexan or plexiglass work in it ok? It seemed to have a slight green tint to it. It has a black garbage bag taped over the hole now.

Plastic would probably work but so will a blue tarp. I assume your just wanting to close the opening until you can get if fixed correctly with a new glass window. I had the same issue years ago and used the blue tarp while the glass was on order.

We had to have a side window fixed and took it to a place that advertised RV repairs. It was a mess when they were done AFTER having the rig 30 DAYS for the repair.

I wish we would have taken it to Elkhart, Indiana to Duncan Systems. They can make any kind of window repair you have.

The place here made a mess of our repair and the entire window had to be replaced due to the frame damage. From now on we will take our window repairs to Elkhart.

Good luck, Lynne

Quick fix is to locate a plastics company and get a chunk of remnant that fits.

If you have a router or table saw and other tools cutting is easy.

Place blade in table saw BACKWARDS.

A plastics dealer will have a selection of types and shades an day also be able to install it.
