Had the windshields pulled and re-sealed, white area now gone and so is the water leak!

I have the same separation as Carmen's picture. My local RV service shop said they think the windshield is separating from frame. Referred me to a glass specialist. $500 to remount. yikes!

Anyone else have. Similar experience?

JCW My 2014 Georgetown XL 334QS developed a couple of relatively small leaks causing water to run down the inside of the windshield during our El Nino season this year. There was never sufficient water to form a puddle or soak the dashboard material. I caught it very early. As a temporary fix I ran a strip of black gorilla tape covering the edge if the glass and the edge of the fiberglass. My model of MH does not have a rubber seal around the windshield, just calking and it is an extremely large windshield which is one reason we chose this model. I ran the tape across the top and down each side. Then flooded with water and had no leaks. This enabled me to determine there were no issues with clearance lights leaking. The cost to remove, clean, re-caulk and reinstall the windshield was $850, unless the windshield was found to have a crack, then $2000+ for a new windshield. The re-caulking job fixed the leak issues. I worked with Forest River and they finally covered the full cost of the job.

I have a Georgetown 337 and have had leaks. Three windshields later, it is fixed properly. It scares me to read all of the repairs done with caulking. These windshields glue onto the body automotive style. There should never be any need to caulk the windshield if it properly installed and the glass is pushed into the urethane properly. I used McBride's RV in Chino, California. They know what they are doing.

I was also amazed at some of the posts where the windshield was removed and re-set. If properly installed it is almost impossible to remove the windshield without breaking it.

Please find a glass guy that specializes in RV windshields you won't regret their expertise and it will get fixed right the first time.

Wife and I were set on a Forester until reading numerous posts on separation of the front cap, and fiberglass roof, causing major leaks. We somewhat turned our attention to the new Georgetown 329s.....and now I'm here reading about windshields leaks, being held in with caulking? .....frustrating !!

If I want to get rained on during a trip ....I'll take the Harley....lol !

I don't blame you for looking around. I'm actually looking at my options with mine also. I may downsize to a sprinter C so I can jump in and go more often.

I haven't had any other windshield issues since my original leak
