Broken window

Hi airstream people,

Darn lawn guys shot up a rock and broke one of our windows today. The lawn company has said they'll pay for repair. My question is, is this something just a regular glass guy can repair or do I need a whole new window?

You need a whole new window.
At least the lawn service is doing the right thing.

The window comes pre framed and mounted in metal. If you replace it yourself, you will need to remove the arm clips, let the arms loose, then lift the widow carefully up to disengage it from the hinge. The new one then will be put into the hinge channel, and arms re attached.

You probably need two people and two step ladders to do it safely.

Or, if you are near a dealer, and the lawn company is paying for things, they will do it too. But it is not hard to do yourself, once you have the window.

We are dropping trailer at a shop in a few weeks to have some work done so my inclination is to just have him do it since I have no time for any other projects however easy they may be
