True, many of the things are a cross over to other FR products. The Forester MH Forum isn't as active as most of the others. Hope Bob will still look at Quartzsite for glass replacement.

Never meant any disrespect to TT owners - I was a TT Person for 15-years myself. It's just a tad surprising when Forester MH owners are engaged in a back and forth when other members suddenly show up in "our" thread. No problem in the least, just unexpected.

(And, no, it's not "our thread" I was just sayin')

No disrespect to any FR owners out there. it's an open forum. The concern is that when the topic gets filled up with posts going off topic, then we end up with too many posts to read. We are at 50+ now on this one. Anyone finding the topic is not going to read all the posts from the start, so my original issue doesn't get addressed. I'm just trying to redirect us back on topic.

Here's the deal. When you are driving your RV (as opposed to towing it) and you are in an accident where glass can shatter, it's especially important to have automotive safety glass. Case in point-- we had placed a mirror on our sliding door that fell off when we hit the brakes and shattered all over the area immediately behind our driving area. Thankfully we had no passengers and our dogs were out of the way.

But hey, it's tied in. When you replace opaque glass with clear, there should be cover of some sort . . .

Don't we wish!?!

I don't see any changes to the posts and it was down for less than an hour. Perhaps someone wrote something that was quickly picked up by the moderator and they pulled the topic to remove it?
I think the valance is appropriate to my topic as a clear window needs covering. Yes, I should have made the title "Next Mod Change entry door glass to clear and Valance/shade to cover it". My mistake.
