trailer window shattered; it's glass?!
Horse was loaded in trailer, I went to open the sliding portion of a drop down window to get some air flow, and when it "hit" (mildly, in my opinion, it's not like I slammed it open) the other side, the entire thing simply shattered into a million pieces, cutting up my hand.
Needless to say, I was shocked. I had no idea that trailer windows were glass!! I thought they were plastic! Or is it some sort of intense plastic that looks like/acts like glass? I have never seen plastic do that before.
It's a 2004 trailer, and it was only 40 degrees outside this morning. This trailer has lived in the north, including 5 years in MN, with sub-zero temps, and I have never had this happen before. It was quite dangerous, as the window pretty much exploded all over my injured, stall-bound, crazy TB who was in the trailer, heading to the hospital for a recheck appt. I had to unload Crazy McGee to clean up all the glass.
I'm assuming a trailer repair place can fix the window, but should I have them all replaced just in case? Thankfully this is a small portion of the window that exploded, but I'm very nervous that if a small bump like opening can shatter it, that going over a pothole in the road may shatter another, much larger window, and I won't know it until we reach our destination.
