We bought our 17 venetian A40 in July. We have had a couple of issues with our frameless windows. The first issue was when we were driving it home to Las Vegas from Dallas area and one of the windows just flew open the metal arm glue let loose from the glass. Was able to stop at a hardware store and get some glue and put it back on. Have had this happen twice now. On this trip my wife says sure is a lot of noise from this window. I think its the same problem. NOPE the glass is separated and the 2 panes are coming apart. Here are the questions. Has anyone else had this happen? How did you fix it? Im thinking maybe just replace the whole window$$. Love to hear you thoughts. Thanks for all the advice
Have you considered calling a shop that specializes in automotive window glass replacement; and seeing if they are willing to suggest how to proceed? At the very least: they should know which adhesive products should work the best...

I have a 2015 Plazzo that is having the same issues. Thor did issue a recall but my year is not covered. I have contacted the NHTSA concerning this and they reached out to me several times for more information and told me how / what to look for to see if any of the other windows are starting to separate. I did find one more that is separating, Thor did not want to help out but I couldn’t continue to drive this knowing the risks to other motorists when this window flies apart.
I urge others with issues to contact NHTSA, this is a safety issue and Thor be addressing it.
Thought I would post un update on these windows. I have now had 4 different windows separate. I spoke to a local RV dealer (no Thor Dealer in LV) they said they use an epoxy to make this repair. I used the type they recommended and guess what? It lasted a year. I think I am just going to replace all the windows and go away from the frameless. I would welcome any venders people like. I watched a video of a place in Oregan that had good reviews, but I can remember the name and cannot find it. Will keep you posted!
