Rear window blown out?

We are new to rving. Just bought our brand new winnebago view a few months ago and were going to start our first trip in a few days. I went out today to move the rig and when I closed my cab door, the rear window on the back slide blew out!! Anyone ever heard of that happening. I can't believe closing the cab door would increase the pressure enough to blow out a window??? It broke out a ragged hole about a foot in diameter. Shattered it to pieces. The frame is still intact. Just the glass blew out.

Wow, that's a new one! I doubt the moho is that air tight, so maybe the glass was compromised by a small crack or something. I assume you're still under warranty, so I hope the dealer will fix it for you ASAP. Good luck.

Prolly a crack during install or manufacture flaw.. Either way, warranty should fix.

Had a rear window on a Dodge Ram completely shatter while going over railroad tracks once.. Dodge covered it.

I had a car window do that once. I just closed it and bam, in a million pieces. Best guess would be some sort of defect and the closing of the door was the tipping point.

So winnebago is overnighting another window for us. Now the check engine light is on and we have to take it to a freight liner trucking company to have that checked. Someday maybe we will be able to use our brand new motorhome!! I guess it's good to get out the kinks when it's still under warranty???

When we got our coach new we had several problems and was very disappointed that a new coach could incur all that, But once those were corrected all is running smooth as expected. Lucky all was in the warranty period.

Good Luck

That is the second best part about buying slightly used. The best part is -- not paying as much depreciation!
