Started a thread on this subject https://www.irv2.com/forums/f274/cro...ds-418288.html
a year and a half ago after purchasing my TS when I knew absolutely very little about motorhomes and less than nothing about TS's, so now after a year I thought an update would be in order. Unfortunately due to the age of the thread it won't let me reply so here is a new thread
Just departing from Paul's after having my windshield hoop installed.
As an afterthought before departing, as my X bracing was done at a shop in SD I asked Paul to look it over. Indeed all of the cross bracing had not been done.
There is a portion of the bracing behind the steer wheels not readily visible and this was missing from mine. Pulled it back into the shop and in a few hours it was complete. So if your cross bracing was not done at Paul's double check and make sure it is all there.
Now hopefully after replacing 2 left panes and one right pane, do to jack failure and air bag failure, I need replace no more.
Additionally in another thread describing my 1st windshield replacement I mentioned that my TS needed a windshield panel 1/2' less wide than other 2004s.
Info from RV glass solutions there was a mid year change in the front cap requiring a smaller pane. Made sense at the time but:
After talking to Paul and his partner it is really due to the fact(s) that during this period of time TS had 3 different windshield suppliers all supplying a slightly different shape and size. Coupled with the fact that the front cap is fiberglass the openings had minor variances in size. So I guess if you are having your windshield replaced and the installer is having trouble with fit or it doesn't look right make them investigate a different windshield pane.
