ID:	78402Have had two windows on slide out side shatter in less than one year. FR refused warranty on first one stating cause probably caused by rock while traveling. Second window different window but on same side. Now I am suspicious may be product defect. Have not yet filed claim because I would like to hear first if anyone out there have had a similar problem with these type of windows? Also, anyone have a good number and contact person to call FR customer service directly?

I have heard of a few but not the flush window type.
Just wondering when pulling do you have the roof vent open a tad?
This equalized the inside pressure with the outside.
Hope you find the solution to the problem.

We have the flush windows and while traveling the window by the kitchen opens. The lock mechanism is not very strong. We ducktape it shut for travel. I can see it coming out while traveling and shatter.

Thanks for insight. Does anyone have a good FR contact that I can talk to that is knowledgeable of the product and will at least hear my concerns? I have heard of others in here stating they have been able to by pass their dealer and talk to FR tech reps/customer service reps directly. If you have a name and number I would appreciate hearing from you.
