Windshields

So just wondering how often have you had to replace your windshield?

Never. I did have a stone bruise repaired, but no cracks. I'm careful when using leveling jacks to never only use one jack to prevent twisting frame. Always apply jacks in pairs.

Had a rock chip ours about 8 years ago. Not sure why but i didn't think it would spread. It wasn't but a few months later that the crack stretched itself across the windshield. Because i choose to have a high deductible and no glass coverage, i never got it taken care of. It doesn't affect the yearly state inspection so i've left it alone. The crack now runs from the top across to the center post. Have had no problems but in the back of my mind, i always have the feeling it's gonna give someday.

In other words, although i should have gotten this replaced, i have yet to do so.

A few small chips that were repaired. Still on the original W/S and fingers crossed it will last a long time! One piece with a great view out front!

1 complete windshield from passing truck in other lane on a US highway n western yoing (chip seal) on our 2014 Sunstar 31KE. 2 additional chips the same day from different oncoming trucks.

Only have had one chip in 4 years in the southeast on roads which are generally more tame

90k and replaced one side. I was on i-70 and a small pickup entered the freeway just ahead of me. As he gained speed he threw a rock into us. Spiderweb instantly.

Zero deductible rider on insurance policy is $100. Lots cheaper than 1 windshield at $3000.
But if I go 30 years without breakage....

If you live in one of these states; Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts and South Carolina, AND you have comprehensive coverage, your windshield is replaced with no deductible. I didn't say free, because your insurance will have cost more. Also, the requirement isn't that it be replaced with OEM, so that may be an issue if it's not a good substitute.
