Several of the glass companies suggest it is a special order window. So does it look like the I will get a lump of coal in my Christmas stocking from my wife as our travel plans are now on hold?
Any temporary patches/fixes???????? We intended to go to Garner State Park west of San Antonio. Not much chance of rain but if it did ........
If this happened to me, I would think duct tape and some form of stiff backing material [cardboard to thin paneling]. If broken but still mostly in the frame, that will seal things up and buy you the time to get it fixed, potentially after you get back home. Immediate goal should be to secure the area, spending no time trying to hide our brain f*rt that caused the problem. On our way south last January, I gassed up and then got in a hurry to pull to the side lot to help the wife with the dogs. [Brain f*rt time] A tight left turn pulling away from the pump and I hung up the TT on the metal pipe bolsters on the end of the pump island. Actually dodged a bullet because damage was superficial with no damage to the wheels and axle. Wife knows from previous similar events not to say a thing. I picked up the pieces got out the duct tape to secure broken wheel well cover and siding trim and we proceeded on our trip.
It might help if you got it off your chest and would remind the rest of us not to do the same thing.
