Help Broken window

I am hoping somebody can give me some useful info. I was using my snowblower today an of course a rock flew out of control and went through a window on my camper.Is this an easy fix or should I let it to a pro? Can't seem to find any info on the web so I am asking the forum family for help. Thank you for any info (2008 Palomino Puma 29 FQS)

I would imagine it depends on which window broke.

I believe replacing the window requires you to remove all the screws around the perimeter of it from the inside, separating the window from the outside and putting a new one in, I don't think they replace just the glass. I would call a dealer and ask.

I had to take the rear window apart on my old Cedar Creek 5er. Not that big of a deal, just a lot of screws. As posted above, they are 2 piece unit, after you get the inside trim off the whole frame pops out. Might want to check with Fretz RV and see if they'll order you one. They got me some things for a unit that they aren't a dealer for. Another local one for you is Indian Valley. Both good dealers that I have dealt with. Just make sure you get it sealed right on the outside- that was original problem with mine that I had to fix.

Last year we had the wind get under one of the crank out windows in our fifth wheel while driving down the road. Had to use 100MPH tape(duct tape) to get it home. It ripped the mechanism up so we could not just replace that. I decided to order a new double pane slider type window for it from Buckaneer RV Supply. We had another trip coming up and needed the window in short order. The people at Buckaneer assured us it would arrive at least a day before we were to leave. It got there a couple of days sooner.

The replacement was pretty easy, it does help to have two people. As for the installation, remove all the screws and take out old window. Clean up the old sealant and caulking. Add new sealant to the window, put in place and slowly tighten the screws, kind of like on a tire, opposite sides all the way around the window. It will take several rounds to get everything tight without warping anything. Then just caulk around it.

Has anyone ever checked with your local glass shop? They can usually order any type and size of glass whether it be tempered or regular, then cut to shape, and replace the broken pane. Just my two cents.

thank you to everyone who replied. Upon further inspection there is some issues that the dealer has to fix (as in the stereo, could ya guess) so I will have them fix the window as well. again thank you.
