Many RV manufacturers have started putting in doors without any windows because of break ins

Break Time!

I believe it's time to take a break and hit the road!

With a MH and in dash camera display a extra input to see who is the door would be a good option for safety prior to opening the door.

Thankfully we had no passengers and our dogs were out of the way.
Sorry to hear that you lost that beautiful mirror.

I called Ross RV Innovations Window Kit | Ross RV Innovations
They will not be at Quartzsite this year. They did alert me to a $20 price increase coming very shortly.
Perhaps there are others like the Edwin window that has a sliding bottom half will be at Quartzsite. I hope Bob is still talking to me and will check out.

Looked at and read the page. Nice looking window, but a little misleading. The window can't slide down no matter what you put in. There are two studs at the bottom that it sits on and when you put the screws in it would be impossible for it to slide down. Granted I like the tempered glass for safety, but it will still shatter. I also like the part of NO SEE in but you can SEE out. The Stain glass or leaded are pretty well made. Granted they are not tempered glass but on the same hand the lead is very thick and strong non-bendable. I have a clear spot in the center of the design, I can see out easily but you need to put your nose up to it to see in. Good Price through. More then likely they supply butyl 1/2 tape for the seal. If you go for it, it will be a rectangular window and you need to round your corners with the tape when you put it in to stop any corner leaks and match the frame (lesson Learned) Here is a before and after picture. Also a tip for the OP Tape the outside frame in place before you take the inside screws out much easier to install and line up. Not trying to highjack the thread but thought it might help someone..

What is the thickness of the entry glass, 1/8" 3/16" or 1/43"? Dimensions are 12"x21" right?

Took frame off entry door window and got measurements. Then went to glass shop and ordered tinted tempered glass. Cost $48 and will be in tomorrow or Friday.
I have all kinds of sealants and tape, what exactly did you guys use for yours?
