Question Frameless Window Problems-Breaking

We have a 2013 Palomino Solaire and love it except one problem, the frameless windows. The second season we owned it, two of the windows came unglued or unbonded from the lower metal brackets. We were able to glue them back on. This year two more windows came unglued and so we taped them for two weeks until one fell totally off the upper bracket. Yikes, lost a window! Anyone else had this problem with frameless windows? We thought about replacing it with another frameless window but we don't want to have the same problem again. So another thought we had was to replace them all with framed ones. Any suggestions from anyone out there would be great especially since we have a long trip planned next month.

Frameless Window Problems-Breaking

I am not sure of the glue they bonded them with...prolly cheap. I would call a glass shop and ask along with Internet research. 3M makes/made window channel bonding adhesive and in my opinion if they make is good.

We purchased some great bonding material but the problem is that by the time we can glue to the top of the window it falls off and we can't get the Windows off until it gets close to falling off. By then it seems to be too late. Not sure what else to do as we can't pry the Windows off until then. It stinks and the tint comes off also.

We had a glass specialist look at the windows and were told they needed to be replaced which we already figured. We have decided to replace four of the worst windows for now with casement windows and the rest possibly at the end of the season We've decided the next trailer we purchase will not be frameless windows. Costly lesson learned. Such a bummer.
