2018 Mini Lite windshield crack edge to edge

I have a 2018 Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite 2506S with a rear bedroom and the front glass window and I love it. However, I just noticed a couple of days ago when waxing the nose of my trailer that there was a L shaped 22" crack from the top side edge in for 4" then 18" down to the bottom edge of the windshield. I've tried to find someone to fill the crack with resin without success, considering replacing the glass. I'm pretty handy can I try filling it with resin or do I need to replace the windshield? If so, what is the approximate cost of a new windshield? The crack isn't noticeable since the glass is tinted. Is it possible to do nothing and just live with it? I would appreciate any suggested options.

It is likely a stress crack from the window sitting on the bottom of the opening. If you have no leaks you could consider a thick clear film over the window. I used an 8mil thick clear film to try to protect ours from road debris. All good so far but it is still too early to know for sure.

You can search for protective clear film on Amazon or others.
