I have an "older" travel trailer (2001 Layton 250LT)
Ice falling off power lines as I drove down the highway broke the bottom part of the front window, the part that has a frame, and it cranks out.

Before I try to take it all apart and find out I've wasted my time -- is that frame maybe glued together at the top, or how can I get a new piece of glass in there? It's not worth trying to find and pay $$$ for a whole new window....

Web-searching has found nothing.

TIA

A glass shop should be able to fix it without trouble.

I would call one of the places that cuts glass/makes windows. They have likely had some experience replacing RV window glass. They could either do it for you, or maybe tell you how to remove the glass, cut it for you, if you'd rather do the work yourself.

There are lots of different crank out window styles. Lots of different ways to replace the glass. Posting a photo might help people understand what you have.

Also, in some rural areas, hardware and/or feed stores will sometimes sell glass.

Home Depot has Lexan sheet that you could cut to fit and hold it in with a good quality caulking compound.
As others have said hardware stores sometimes have ability to cut glass, not sure of the round corners, and it won't be tempered.
A large plastic bag and duct tape might get you to a place large enough to have better access to a permanent repair.

When I broke the window on my previous 5W, the glass shop had me bring in the frame. He made a cardboard pattern and sent it to his supplier. They cut the glass and then tempered it. I brought the frame back for installation.

You can call around to find a shop who will do the work. If your window is the non moveable section, it will probably require two trips by the shop to complete the installation.
