Default I had a similar problem

About 2 years ago, I noticed the my back windows were separating and debonding from the canopy. Thank goodness I had the foresight to recognize that this can separate and I had the windows removed rebonded , fiberglassed and painted by a guy with lots of experience in fiberglass. I did not build my 10, so I wanted to get someone with experience. Sorry you had to go thru this scary experience, but I must say I?m proud of myself for recognizing this and being pro active about it.

That's a bit different than my situation. I had the expansion/contraction cracks at the corners but no separation or debonding that was apparent until the window departed. The cracks were the same as they had been for the 5 years I have owned it. No difference in height with the surrounding fiberglass or widening of the cracks over the years. But I'm glad you saw yours debonding and got them fixed!
