Cracked window rock guard

Arrived at our destination today to discover a starburst-type fracture about the size of a quarter in the smoked rock guard over the big front window of our 2013 Flying Cloud. What is the best course of action for this mishap? Do people leave it as is? Is there some sort of repair, similar to windshield repairs that should be done? Do these things tend to spread, as they will do in an automobile windshield?
Thanks for your advice.

This happened to us last year (also on a 2013 25FB Flying Cloud). Our impact was right near an upper corner which makes it less noticable.

I drilled small holes through the plastic at the end of each crack. Then I flipped the rock guard up to the horizontal position, and applied superglue to the cracks. The cracks have not advanced since then (we have towed over 3000 miles since).

There is a starburst crack in mine too. It has not changed in the last year. I have not done anything to it.

Not sure about this, but can windshield repair guys fix this?

I had a starburst in one of the glass rock guards and a windshield guy fixed it and my insurance paid for it same as they would have for a car.

Thanks for the responses. I will be at our selling dealer on Friday and will ask them about this as well. I'll post here if I find out anything definite.

Same thing happened to our Airstream. I ordered a vinyl Flamingo decal and placed it smack dab over the starburst - looks great
