Frameless window crazed and a storm coming


RV-EMS

Recommended Posts

Any experience with sealing up a frameless window while we wait for replacement? The park we were in was mowing and … our front passenger side window upper is shattered but in place.

First problem is that a storm is coming in and the window is already starting to leak a bit.

Second problem is we are supposed to travel in a few weeks and the possibility of having it fully repaired by then doesn’t look hopeful.

Anyone have any experience with this kind of nonsense?

If it is leaking around the perimeter of the glass you can probably seal it with duct tape as a temporary fix. I have done that in similar situations successfully. You do want to use a quality tape as cheap ones will leave a residue when removed.

If there's tape residue , WD40 will take it off quick . ;)

Goes around , comes around .

There is a product called Collision Wrap, it comes on a 36-inch-wide roll.   It sticks on very well and is made to cover parts of cars that are damaged to prevent more water damage.   You should be able to get it at any auto body supply shop or I think Amazon sells it.  It works great for covering broken glass.

Yup, collision wrap, or Glad Press-n-Seal wrap. Cover all the way to bodywork, not just the glass, to keep rain out.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.

I have used packaging tape with success to keep the glass together until it can be replaced. Replacing window glass is a PITA. The actual part numbers are on a sticker on the inside of the frame, meaning you must remove window frame to access the label. It's not difficult, but a royal pain, then about 5 weeks for Duncan/LCI to make the replacement.

I used the Gorilla brand "Duck" tape for almost a year on a window that shattered but stayed in place. Too months to get the window but then I couldn't find anyone willing to assist with the replacement. It's not a one person two hands job for sure. Finally made it back to the "Factory" to have it put in. Had paid them to ship it to me when it arrive there. Should have left it in their hands. I'm lucky I didn't break it before they could put it in.
