Has anyone done any work on the coach that would have required pulling out the windshield, such as bringing in furniture or appliances ? Bottom left picture is that a big chip missing with a hole going right through ?

I bought it used but nothing like that since I've had it.
No holes, just the cracks

Is the glass ok? It looks like the fiberglass is cracked? Sorry I'm on my phone and can't see it well.

No problems at all with the glass, seems to be a stress crack right in the corner below the windshield, and about a foot up the side

Not saying the cracks are from this, but be careful when manually using the jacks. By racking the cabin with uneven jack position can even crack the windshield. I saw an Allegro Bus with the window cracked right down the middle with one solitary crack.

Thx for the tip, when manually using jacks I always operate them in pairs, left or right pair, front or back pair

Kind of looks like something could have hit it. Like a large rock while driving maybe? At least it's all on one color, a good body mechanic can fix that right up.

Have you inspected the substructure up in the generator compartment? Is it possible a support spar has come loose/failed and the fiberglass isn't supported properly and flexing until it cracks?
