Need Help - WINDOW 2006 Mountain Aire 4528 Drivers side window shattered. Can't find a replacement without ridiculously high price from NEWMAR. Local repair shop having difficulty finding a proper dual-paned thermal, DOT approved replacement. Does anyone have a recommendation or suggestions for someone that can help me? I'm stuck parked in driveway at home until fixed and it's killing us.
Recently I had a bad experience with Suncoast Designs glass company. Here is the transcript of the email conversation with their manager. It's not about the workmanship as much as it is about the attitude of the management. You can draw your own conclusion. As you can see, I never asked them for anything! You can see the same compound on the blind in the background as well as on the paint and glass. Please start reading from the bottom (the start of the correspondence). >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Photos are here: http://bottieri.com/remote/Bottieri/Vehicles/Pages/Suncoast_Designers.html#1 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> End: We are concerned with the quality of work coming out of our facility. If you desire us to look at the work, then you will have to bring the coach back to our facility. We do not have a mobile team of any sort and therefore only work out of our facility. We are also aware that Marathon produces a quality product, however we have worked on many Prevosts and this is not a typical issue. We are not accusing Marathon, it is whomever is responsible for the paint, whether it is Marathon or someone else. Regardless of whether it was raining or not, you signed off on it, it is not our fault that you did not more closely inspect your coach. In regards to the blind, we will require three quotes from three separate companies.

I've brought this all to your attention because It was my impression that you are concerned with quality and would be interested in seeing some of what leaves your business if it wasn't top quality. Your comment about my touching up stone chips has no relation to peeling off paint, and Marathon Coach does not put out shoddy paint jobs. I don't know what the technical term is for the compound that is on my paint and blind, but it's also on the glass. I called it cement, but regardless of what you call it - it's there and got put there by your people. Take a good look at the photos and you'll see it smeared on the glass and down onto the paint. Yes, I signed off on the job - in the rain which made it impossible to see the problems. I've invited you to come see for yourself. If you really care about what your shop is producing, you should take that offer before claiming it wasn't done by your people. I've contacted Marathon about a new blind and will get back to you with the cost.

In addition, you signed our checklist stating that you were satisfied with the work done prior to you leaving our facility. Due to the damages to the paint, it is clear that you have a very shotty paint job, which is an issue to take up with those responsible for your paint job, not us. In addition, the fact that you touched up the paint yourself, you have already admitted that you had damage to the paint, prior to ever entering our facility. Therefore we are not responsible for any of the damages mentioned. In lite of this, and the fact that we do not use cement, nor anything like cement, we have still offered to replace those blinds, despite the fact that it is not our responsibility.

Second, the paint chips weren't there before you worked on the coach as I had personally touched up every nick and chip the weekend before heading to Hudson. Third, the cement on the blind is exactly the same as what is smeared on the paint below the window. It's not caulk. It won't come off either place. I plan to be in Clearwater at Parliament coach the afternoon of the 8th of January. You are welcome to come see the job in person. There's more mess than visible in the photos.

I do want to inform you that based on the picture, it looks like it could be black caulk on the blinds, there would be no reason for cement to be in your RV, however I brought this to my managers attention and he has informed me to request that you go ahead and send us the bill for the blind replacement. In regards to the paint, what we use for the window template is painters tape, if your paint job was done correctly it wouldn't remove any of the paint. Therefore, unfortunately , there is nothing we are able to do for the paint. If there is anything else i can help you with, please, do not hesitate to ask.

The Brustor window awning has two Achilles heel issues: the roller rotates inside a fragile nylon retainer on the non-motorized end. That fixture requires periodic inspection. The clamshell cover that must be lifted to inspect the awning for security is held in place by two tiny countersunk stainless screws which are prone to falling out (the second weakness). Once that cover extends to 30 degrees or so, it is designed to exit the scene. Were it to remain momentarily thanks to the remaining tiny screw, it could mar extensively the side of the coach before fluttering off into the windshield of a passing motorist... A curious and weak design, indeed.
I had one of those aw @#$% moments when leaving a storage lot with my 2006 Winnebago Tour which left me with a broken window on the drivers side living room slideout. Luckily, only the outer panel was broken so I still have an intact inner pane. Does any one have experience or a recommendation for a repair facility in the Palm Springs, CA area who "does windows"? The window frame shows some damage so this is likely more than just a glass replacement.
