Can anyone tell why I have a gap between my ceiling( the white) and the windshield? You can see the insulation,had window installed and they tell me the windshield is against the fiberglass. FR can't tell me why. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a 2007 but I've never looked up towards the ceiling like your picture. I will when I get home though. Looks like the headliner wasn't trimmed properly so it could be moved forward against the seal.

After checking mine it appears that the headliner does not meet the black rubber seal but is butted against the fibreglass cap. My gap is about 3/8" all across the front but no insulation is showing just the pink of the fibreglass cap.

I have a 2005 that looks similar to yours, and I have had 3 incidences in the last year where the windshield has popped out when stabilizing my 375. I have read on this forum where others have had that same problem. I contacted Mr. Burns at Forest River and was told this was from lifting one side, or the front/back at too steep of angle. It doesn’t seem that this should happen at all since I only lift the unit 3-4 inches one direction or another after getting it reasonably level to start with.

I am considering getting legal advice to see if there is anything that can be done, since it appears to be a design issue, rather than user error. $300-400 each repair adds up.
If any of you have found a permanent fix for this problem, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Thanks, Ron

I will take a peek when I get back into ours, but don't recall having the gap.

I just happen to have the MH here at the house so I went out to check my 391. It too has a less than one inch gap though there is some sort of black caulk at the ceiling. From the looks of the gap it appears to be designed in to allow some movement and manufacturing tolerance. Keep in mind that my rig is a whole different chassis manufacturer but the FR design seems to be the same in this ceiling to windshield junction area.

I've levelled my rig fairly harshly in the past. I'm better and gentler at it now but I've never had any windshield issues. I would definitely pursue the issue with FR. No leveling should pop a windshield. I'm not buying that one at all!
