window crack on my 1950

Well, we are heading out for the seasons first trip on Monday (I think). Thought I was all ready to go until I opened the external front window cover on the 1950. Front window is cracked side to side. I covered the crack inside and outside with duct tape but I definitely can't trust it. Long story short the trailer is headed to the glass shop tomorrow for a rather expensive window replacement. The rounded corners don't help with the cost.

Not sure if this is a temperature related issue or a crack due to flexing. I have to do a bit of back and forth and a tight turn to get the trailer into my driveway. Anyone have this issue in the past?

I have removed and reinstalled the front window in my Advancer but not had that problem!
Was it well seated in it's frame? Hard to fathom the frame twisting enough to crack the window.

The glass has been replaced. The old pane came out in 3 pieces. When the glass guy used these as a template for the new pane, the centre portion height was too tight so they cut it down a bit. In other words, the frame height is slightly more on the sides than in the middle. Maybe since it was built, maybe something has happened. Not sure, but itís all good now. Safe travels everyone.

Glad it all worked out. Sounds like the hole was probably a little too small.
