Bathroom Window Gone

2021 Aspire 44B. The outside (Tinted) window for my back bath is gone. How does this even happen? Drive from Washington State to Las Vegas. All open highway. Hot as hell but all open highway.

Mine came loose and was flopping in the wind. Replaced under warranty.

That exact same thing happened to us. Seems to be a new issue as when I called CS they seemed truly in awe that it happened and I had to explain the situation 3 times. Took 2 months to get the window.
Mine was not loose at all at the time as I tighten each window before depatures

We lost our entrance door window on our 16 Anthem. We are at Entegra University now and there is an owner here with a 2021 that had the bathroom window delaminate.

I'm guessing that you have the frameless, dual glaze windows. From what I've read on this forum, there is a problem with delamination of the panes that can go unnoticed if one does not inspect carefully. Once delamination begins, the outside pane can completely separate and fly off the coach while driving. This sounds like what happened in your situation.


In short, not an installation problem, but a known defect in the window manufacture.

Same trip beginning Saturday morning. We took I82-84 through WA, OR, and ID to Twin Falls, South on US 93 and then Nev 318 to I 15. Didnít see your window, but did experience 124 degree heat. Pulled into NIRVC at 2:15. Bedroom was over 100 at midnight. Hotel the next day while coach was being worked on. So far so good at NIRVC Las Vegas. They were flexible enough to attempt to take care of several other problems that cropped up on the way south. Weíll see how they do.

That rear bath window is NOT an emergency exit window.

Are they manufactured by Shaw industries?

Any chance the change in pressure from going up and down the mountains could cause this? just a thought. I read about the sleep number beds popping if they are not deflated in changing altitudes.

Ok, I did laugh at your reply.

The windows are probably Lippert as they bought Hehr a while ago. They have had issues and a number of Newmar owners have experienced the same problem.

Was your coach built on a Monday or a Friday. Always made a difference with cars. Same process so..... Ours was botched, Chuck had one from '14 worse than ours, so always wondering.
