Cracking noise at windshield

I have a 2013 Georgetown XL 378 and it makes a cracking noise at the windshield as if someone threw a stone against the window. Only does it while sitting not while driving. It does this about 7 or 8 times a day. Does anybody else have this problem. I am going to the Tampa show next week, I will ask the dealers there. Let me know what you think.

Is it facing the sun all day? Even partially it's probably thermal expansion,, moving in its gasket.

Agree with VinceU. If I'm outside in the coach early in the day and the sun is out the noises are everywhere as the temperature climbs. I hear it at the windshield as well as the entrance door. If you stand next to a house with vinyl siding and the sun starts shining directly on the siding it will make quite a bit of noise and move as well. Same principle.
