I have heard some people say the windows will crack when putting camper up or down in cold weather and some say it isn't true. And if it is true, how cold is too cold?
Hello and welcome from Minnesota!Question: Is there anything I can apply or a treatment for the windows that could improve my chances if success?
I don't know if there is anything you could apply because the cracking will be at the molecular level. .
Oh, and Modulus is the term we're hunting for here. More on Modulus: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elastic_modulus
I don't think you'll have an issue at 45°F, especially if you're using any kind of heat inside.I have a 1984 Shasta 165 pop up. I've 'nursed' it along these past years and it's held up fairly well. Going out in a couple of weekends to Door county, WI. Temp range predicted to be 55 day 45 nite. I'm concerned about the vinyl windows. From what I've read here, it sounds like a crap shoot.
