Kelly,

The folks who are experiencing this problem seem to be those with new coaches. If you buy a rockguard from Airstream for your rig, it should be fine. I bought mine four years ago and haven't had a problem with it yet.

Hi Kelly,
I really hope this is a rare occurrence (I think the few of us on Airforums with the problem are the only ones), but even if this is a common problem, I'd still want the rock guards. Rocks do fly, and I'd hate to see one go through a window. We have a rock "star" on our center window guard (which we didn't replace)...that rock guard saved the window. They are expensive though. The sticker was still on our guards when they arrived...$947 for the full set.

We will also follow Stingray's advice about not washing in the heat. The striations do look like plastic that has crazing marks from a dishwasher. However, we've had a really cool summer, and we're not sure we ever washed it in the heat. Though, we might have last summer and just didn't notice the striations until this year. The road side rockguard got so bad that we had to tape it from the inside because little chunks were falling out.

One other thing too, Kelly, though I don't know if it makes a difference or not....the rock guards on the newer coaches are three-piece units...ours are one-piece.

It sounds like we are going to need a 3 piece and have the middle modified to fit our model 'Minuet'... sounds like the 3 pieces might be a good thing... thanks again for all the input ;-)
