Leaking windshield

I am having trouble with my front passenger side windshield leaking. Just checked it and it is really bad. I wanted to know just where here in south New Jersey there is a reputable place to have it fixed / replaced. I bought it new at Willingboro/Chrysler RV Dealership, which has since gone out of business. Perhaps a call to the factory is in order. Thanks in advance.

Many of the automotive glass shops (Guardian for sure) can R&R the windshield. The trick is finding someone to deal with the rust you are likely to find on the metal frame which is likely the cause of your leak.

When we had a windshield crack and leak on our 2002 Journey, we used a local Guardian Glass shop to remove the glass and install the new glass. We took the coach to an automotive collision repair shop that also does limited RV repairs. They took care of the rust while the old glass was out.

You might want to call a Guardian glass vendor in your area and see if they can recommend a shop to do the work. Or, the Guardian shop may do it all.

You could call you insurance company and talk to them about your leak. They will know who can do the work in your area and perhaps they will allow a claim and pay for your fix minus any deductible you might have.

Safe travels. JD

No. I drove coach to shop and Guardian came there to do the glass work.

leaks are normal for winnebago

the has been a lot of articles and suggested repairs for the metal frames on winnebagos. I have not met one person who did not have a leak.

Mine leaked a tremendous amount of water and I also found no less than four separate areas where water does enter the framing systems from the back to the front.

although you said that the dealer was out of business, there still is an RV repair shop there on rt 130 at the same location. Most of the repair work can be done by yourself if you have a ladder and time. mostly it just requires a little investigating and calking. you may have to patch up some rusted metal first.

I now have ZERO leaks.

do you still live in the willingboro area????

OK now I'm getting some where, Thanks. Yes I still live in the Willingboro area. That RV shop is not the same Willingboro RV that I bought my coach from. I stopped in there once, that was enough to show me that I should walk out and never come back. I am thinking that I need to fix the steel frame first then take care of the windshield. I have already cleaned, caulked and patched this more than once, it is getting really bad this time. I'll have to have the windshield removed and fixed right this time around.
