Welcome home Ozz. Did the same thing last year re-setting my landing gear for leveling. All you can say is DOH! and honey do you have our agents number? Mine was a $1000.00 power slider that you can't get "pieces" for.

Count me in Ozz, can't wait until July when we head out to Illinois for a couple of weeks-would stay out longer but I would probably not have a job when I got back .

What went wrong other than being pressured and in a hurry? If you’ve done that several times in the past what changed?

Well, the turn I have to make to get in my property parking place is a tight 90 degree turn on top of a hill at a crossroads. I was backing the trailer in, the 2 drivers side trailer tires were in a muddy ditch about 6" deep, the right truck tire was on the ledge of the asphalt road with about 9"-10" of drop off, I was getting out of the truck to check the truck tire, Sue was blocking traffic coming up the hill (a blind spot) and... there was traffic I was holding up in front of me. I can't pull foreword, that road goes down a steep hill, my truck would not be able to back the trailer from that way.
It is threading the needle every time I do it. I had the truck away about 4" from touching the window, got out, checked the tire location, motioned to the backed up traffic I would be done in a few minutes, and when I got in and backed up...Bam, the window exploded. The muddy ditch lowered that side of the trailer I guess, and I wasn't perfectly in place.
Oh, and I can't enter from the other direction, the turns are too steep.
Not easy being the Ozzman....

No, it just slides, I told them to find a solid window, no slides, it is still $360.00 (Heavy tint, F-250 crew cab)

I priced out both choices just for the "fun of it". $646.00 for the power slider and $349.00 for a manual slider.

I have a power sliding window, but have never used it except to show Joyce what that button did. If I ever break it out, looks like a standard window is going back in.

I am going to go to the solid back glass also.
Dick, do you have a shelter from storms available at the lake?

You know they say most accidents happen within five miles of your home.

Bob hooked the entire side of the Montana on a guide wire to the electric pole. It hooked under the kitchen slide and pulled the entire pole towards the Montana. He thought he was just going to cut the wire and release it. I was on the phone to the power company telling them what had happened. They shouted don't let him do anything to the wire as it could kill him.

The power company was out immediately, cut the wire, and related to hubby that it could have taken his head off when the line snapped. The repair bill was well worth keeping him around.

Jim, sorry you had your trouble, but remember seeing your pictures of your street into your driveway. Things happen.... just glad nobody was hurt.

Know what you mean about living in the smaller area and then coming home to the biggger casa. Have thought we could just live in the Montana, but then I love watching my deer in my backyard. I will grow old in my house and have fun in my Montana.

That price was for a Ford sliding window, you should be able to in and have them order one for you and get some kind of discount for have a business. (they don't have to know that you might have sold it) There is not a big difference between cost and list on a piece of glass, in fact you might be better off checking with the local glass company that does windshield installs and see if they can get you a factory Carlite sliding window for less money than what the dealer would sell it to you for.

Hi colleen, good to hear from you. I am glad Bob didn't get hurt, it can happen so fast.

Thanks Ed, appreciate it.

Ozz,
When you recover from your "welcome home" just think about the 11 month's, 13,500 miles while relaxing and sipping your favorite beverage. You will achieve perspective.
