Hi Robert W.  Thanks for the answer to my glass problem.  I didn't know they could cut glass with 90* turn.  Vandals broke the glass but it is still intact.  I called one glass place and they said they don't do RVs anymore.  still looking.  I will get an expert to install if I can find someone to cut.  thanks again. sTeve

I sis auto glass for 15 years. You can try an auto glass shop to see if the Grumman RV is in the catalogs, but dont be surprised if it isnt.

 

If it isnt, you will have to have glasses cut, hopefully you have the old ones for patterns. as far as the rubber gasket goes, you will need to save a piece of the old one. There are many different gaskets available, each with its own dimensions.

 

Specifically, the width and depth of the slot that attaches to the body, the width and depth of the slot the glass rides in, and the thickness of the rubber that separates the body slot and the glass slot.

 

There are also different ways to lock the rubber gasket closed, as well as gaskets with no locking required.

 

Unless you are a very handy person, and have some help available, I would suggest you leave the install to the pro's; give them a pattern to cut by and a piece of the old gasket to match up. At least get their quote on doing the whole job, and the quote to cut the glass and supply the gasket {DIY install}. You may be surprised how cheap they will install it for.

 

Probably cheaper than having another glass cut if you break one while installing...
