Breaks in passenger-side RV windows of your camper or motorhome are often called surprise breaks. Unlike the broken glass in your RV's windshield or its back glass, where you may have seen or heard the damage occurring, breaks in RV side windows often occur while you're not present. While the reason for breaking your front or back windshield is rarely due to a crime, a break in your RV's side window is often the result of an attempt by someone to break into your camper or motorhome.
No matter where the glass is or what it is called, when your RV window needs repair or replacement, it's often an unwelcome hassle. There are a few things you should know about your RV's side window glass. First, most RV side windows are not good candidates for repair and must be replaced. This is because most RV side windows are made of tempered glass, and tempered glass cannot be repaired. Some higher-end models that promote soundproofing use laminated glass in their RV's side windows. Additionally, some campers or motorhomes that have been retrofitted with enhanced security measures also use laminated glass in their side windows. Depending on the type of damage, these laminated RV windows might be a candidate for repair.
If your RV's window has been broken as a result of a break-in or attempted break-in, you may want to consider adding a security film to the glass after it has been replaced. Security film works like a big piece of thick scotch tape. It makes it harder to break through to the glass, and it holds the glass together when it is broken. Many glass shops also offer window film services, and you may wish to ask about them.
