Put a piece of clear plexiglass on the outside, #1 to protect the stained glass & #2 to solve the tempered argument.
Just for the record, OOPS is not what I said after my mishap!!!

I was backing our TT in after a great road trip. It was raining and I didn't realize I had scraped the chain link fence and pole. When I got out I was informed by my lovely wife, in a very calm way, about what I had done. I didn't even look at it until the next day.

IT HAPPENS.

I'm sure it won't be the last scrape or dent you'll experience. Won't be for me!

Yes, it DOES happen. In 14 years of RVing with 7 different rigs I distinctly remember Oops I in 2009 and Oops II just last June!

Check out AMICA. Number one rated. Been with them over 50 years, never raised premium due to a claim. Can't beat their service.

That would be State Farm. My OOPS cost me $500, my deductible, & SF paid the other $9400. Took 3+ weeks for CR/Keystone to figure out which had the parts & 10 days for the body shop to repair it.

Safeco insurance

Good to know, going to have to make a change soon, what good is insurance if you can't use it once in a great while.......

Opps happen!!!!!!!!!

"The emergency brake pin had pulled out. Put that back in and it's all good"
Sounds like your emergency brake would be no help if you had a emergency.

The e-brake would work fine if the 5er became unhitched. My Ford diesel is just such a beast it was able to drag it along.......
