rv stress crackOne of my favorite Boise Idaho RV Parks is the Mountain View RV Park located off Broadway and Interstate-84.  The easy access to the freeway and the spectacular views of the Boise Mountains make it the perfect little RV Park.  I spend a lot of time there diagnosing problem Motorhome Windshields because many of the Mountain View RV Park guests just traveled through the Mountain Home to Boise section of I-84 which is in poor condition.  That section of the freeway is loaded with chuck holes and ruts.  cracked-windshield-repair_full

One client (Mike) experienced the passenger side windshield stressing and it partially fell inside when he hit a chuck hole five miles east of Boise on I-84.  His wife was sitting on the passenger side and had shards of glass land on her face.  Luckily she was wearing sun glasses which protected her eyes.  They immediately pulled to the side of the road to decide what they should do.  After searching on Google for an RV Glass repair shop, they found my number and called.  I advised them to drive to the Mountain View RV Park to stay until their window could be repaired.  Mike agreed so I met him there the next day to replace the windshield and clean up the glass mess.
