Driver's windshield falling out, needs resetting ASAP.

The story is long and complicated but I'll keep it short. The 2005 Monaco Knight with a split windshield had new ones replaced after a collision I have previously posted about. It is undrivable IMO to safely get it from our USFS campground at 8,200' in the mountains west of Boulder "down the hill" as the locals say, to an RV glass installer.
The company who installed it several years ago, RV Glass Specialists, is out of business. The former owner now works for the successor company, Resolution Glass Specialties, and he eventually sent a 2 man crew to reset the windshield at no charge as it only had 4,000 miles on it almost all of which was on paved roads in the Front Range.
After waiting all day for the crew to arrive I got a voicemail from him saying the owner of the new company didn't want anything to do with it because I had (foolishly) mentioned I was glad I didn't need to involve him or his company in a lawsuit naming Progressive Insurance, Diversified Body and Paint and the lady who caused the collision for failing to properly repair my coach and for Progressive to reimburse me for thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses.
The water was shutoff in the campground today for some reason as the campground is closing for the winter on October 11th.
Can anyone please hook me up with someone in the Front Range who is able to reset in place, not remove and replace, my driver's side windshield before we have to pay a lot of money out of pocket to have it towed who knows where. I have already had to pay $300 to have it towed 3 blocks (unreimbursed by Progressive) after the collision.
I would be very grateful if someone could help us out.

We had a one piece windshield that popped out at the corner. We had a hunting trip scheduled and didn't have time to get it fixed. We taped the corner with duct tape and did a 4000 mile trip without any issues.

I as mentioned above...tape it and drive it.

The Nascar people call duct tape "200 MPH tape". Be sure not to exceed that.

Just don't leave the tape on very long, as it will peel off paint. Hopefully the cooler weather will prevent the chances of this.

It's too late for you to edit your post but I wonder if you could have a Moderator rename your post to something like "Need mobile windshield company in Front Range, CO to reset window". Then you might get specific recommendations. Many folks might bypass your post without looking at it because of your title. Just a suggestion. Good luck!
