It would be way faster to take it to and auto glass shop in your area and have them replace it.
They may be able to match the tint as well.

order a new one from FR

That is what I did. Mine is a radius tinted window, and the local glass company thought they could match the tint and radius pretty closely. I then contanted my dealer, who ordered the whole window with frame (replacement), for less than the glass company.
But the price difference doesn't include labor, however I am hoping it is pretty standard and that I can do it myself. Which I will attempt tomorrow, should the rains here in Co. let up.

Broken Window

I ordered one from the dealer for my FR RV. Very easy and fast to change. You need sealed and a screw driver, lots of screws.

X2...40 to 50 bucks glass shop most likely....unless its in a 5th wheel or motorhome, then the glass shop should require safety glass.

Glass shop wouldn't guarantee matching the tint. Plus they were $225 plus labor, so call it $300 plus tax. The original glass with frame, from FR, was only $200. Did it myself, with my wife assisting. Used the same screws. Took an hour....

musta been safety glass or they are very expensive...my shop carries light and dark tint. Havent had any issues...if its gotta be safety glass, the glass shop is probably NOT the way to go... if its safety glass, then they cut the glass and ship to have tempered, then re-install, according to my glass guy. costly indeed. probably why they cant guarantee the tint color either after tempering.
