Thumbs down 2005 Winnebago windshield leak

NEW MEMBER... Have an 05 Adventurer with pass. side w/shield leak and W/bago says damage to steel frame b/hind w/shield needs metal work to allow proper seal of replacement. Anyone have that prob. and where" ON THE WEST COAST" can you have it repaired "AND" guaranteed? I live in No. Ca. and all I get is "take it to an auth. dealer,collision center,etc" and I don't buy that! Any help here?

Had the same problem in '04 Adventurer, had to have steel replacement of upper
frame. Had done in Ventura at Bills RV, guarentee 1 year. Evidently is an
inherent problem with Winnebago. The way the Trim and its mounts are put in
the windshield catches water and holds it, hence the rust. I had to do both
sides, the pressure of the rust under the glass cracked left side, on the way to
the shop, the right side cracked. about $2200 in '08

I had the same problem in my 2008 Winnebago Destination. Fortunately it was under warranty. The dealer pulled the interior trim off and you could see the rusted area. They called a body man to the shop and I was fortunate enough to be there when he was there inspecting it.

He said that Winnebago was notorious for this type of leak. That he would fix it and as long as he is alive he would warranty it. So, it is a matter for a good body shop. They will need to grind, prime, fill, and paint the upper area that the window seals against. Once rust forms, it pushes the seal away and the leaks start as a trickle.

Good luck.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
