The windshield needs to be properly installed by an experienced motor home glass installer. Probably also need a new gasket.
I'd recommend these guys:

Then carefully follow the leveling instructions (lower the front jack first).

I had a brand new Diplomat in 2002 and when trying to level on pretty unlevel ground it popped out. I had the tripod system (one in front 2 in back) they acknowledged a problem back then

Are you leveling manually, or is there a auto level button you are using?
In my experience, what you describe could be due to improper leveling sequence. In my diesel w/air suspension coaches, I always dump the air suspension, and then using the front level button make sure the front of the coach comes up 1 or 2 inches. After the front is up, then, and only then I use the rear legs to level the coach. This allows the front to pivot and prevents twisting the frame.

I have never tried auto out of fear of of popping the WS. Front lifted a bit. My butt has a pretty good bubble level. I have hit within a tenth degree each way on the phone app before.

Unfortunately, the long wheelbase Coaches (like my 42ft Beaver) will crack the windshield if the Coach goes out of level. Mine did twice now (and I had the glass installed by the company listed above with a new gasket after the first cracking).

This time I just had the Coach parked at my home (did not use it at all in 2020 due to the COVID thing). I left it in auto-level mode (air leveling), then months later noticed it was slightly dipping at the front left - which is when I noticed the glass had cracked in the corner.

The auto leveling did not do its thing (it is plugged in to shore power) and the HWH air compressor should have kicked on to keep the air bags full - but something didn't work. Maybe I should dump all the air and just let it sit at its lowest while parked for storage next time.

My HWH book says the system (air only) levels +/- 1 degree so I do mine manually.
