I would call your insurance company and ask who they use in your area and call them. In fact lots of hem will pay for the repair even with high deductibles..
You need a high speed Carbide bur drill bit to drill stop the crack.. It always works to stop the running..

I told you about the "Crack doctor" in San Diego. I didn't know you lived in the area. Even though pictures are sometimes deceiving, from what I can see, it looks like a pretty darn good repair. Ours, while not invisible, is also a darn good repair. We paid right at $120.00 for our repair. While some might say that's a "high cost", it's SERIOUSLY CHEAPER than buying half a windshield at about $800 - $1,000 depending on who sells it and installs it.

If you do not stay on top of the roof seam and front cap caulking then water will follow the side channels forward and end up taking out the steel windshield frame. Fixing the crack is only repairing the symptom of the water leak generating the rust and causing the cracking.

I could not find any one to fix a crack longer than 2 inches long. Mine was 6-8 inches long.
Rusting frame causing leaking inside of coach.
I decided to repair both sides of windshield.
Insurance paid for the cracked side, I had to pay for the glass on the driver side.
Expensive, yes, any more leaks, No.
Caulked all of my seams to try and avoid repeating the process in a few years.
We can't wait to get back on the road this year already!
Take off the cover next week.Yippy!!!
