Angry Monaco Diplomat 38pbdd windshield

So I had to have roadside tire service come out. We used my drive side rear jack to lift up my rear tire for the technician to work on the tire. Well ilI had it up about 6 inch or maybe more. So somehow it crack my window shield when i started to let it down. Why would this crack that easy?

If you only used ONE jack and got it high enough to have the tires on that side off the ground, that's a LOT of flex introduced on the chassis and the windshield is what gave way. If you're using the jacks to assist in any tire work, make sure you use BOTH sides. If you lift the entire front or rear off the ground, you should be fine, but just lifting one of the four corners will twist the hell out of things.

Monaco has a 3 point jack system. The procedure it to put the front down and raise the front about ~3/4", the front jack acts as a pivot to help prevent the frame from twisting. The back two are used to level from side to side, all 3 to get it level. Air bags are suppose to be dumped prior to using jacks.

Using only one jack twisted the frame and when you let it back down the windshield did not have time to move back into position and it stressed it.

There is a section in the manual that covers the leveling system.
