Was wanting the new one piece windshield until we drove to Mazatlan. Got two chips, both of which have small cracks. Glad there both on one pane(passenger side-so I don't have to worry about ducking yet). My last coach had over 20 chips but no cracks-guess they don't build glass like they used to?

Most auto parts stores carry small windshield repair kits. I have several in the coach that have a liquid filler like a super glue along with several attachments and tools. One attachment is for a stone chips, other parts will work on regular cracks. The stuff stops the chips or cracks from expanding until you can get them done by a pro.
I agree, thank goodness for 2 piece windshields from a repacement cost perspective. I need to change out my driver's side at some point. I got hit by a golf ball sized rock thrown up by a truck. It hit right at the rubber edge seam. The kit I mentioned kept the crack from growing and has remained the same length for months after my quick repair. I don't have inspection requirements where I am registered so I will wait to replace the panel.
