Bummer; just noticed this is a Georgetown thread.
I have a 5th wheel and I am so sorry.

That's okay Herk.

Some day you might make the switch over to the good side!

Ha ha! One thing I have learned on this MH is that if I wait long enough, sooner or later you will take it apart, then show a better way to put it back together. Figured you would have had that window open by now.

Seriously, thanks everyone for the input. I pray we never have to use it but good to know it can be opened and gaskets maintained to prevent sticking just in case it's ever needed. Most of the time our rear curtain is down so its easy to forget about it.

Exclamation Why Does My Emergency Windows Have Screens????

Hi Everyone!!!

I recently purchased a 2013 27' Forest River Work & Play. I noticed that the windows in the "garage" and in the bedroom had labels on them stating that they are for emergency exits only. But why do they have screens???? Can I open them for ventilation? It kinda stinks that I only have the kitchen and living room windows to open for ventilation ...and the door...and ceiling fans.

Your reply would be greatly appreciated
Thank you!

Having forgotten to re-latch that "Emergency Exit" once (or bumped it getting out of bed), I can tell you it is an expensive mistake.

I have since drilled and pinned the arm with a streamer'ed safety pin so I can see the tail to make sure it's installed prior to closing up. Photo was taken before adding the "Install before Flight" streamer!

My coach has a rather small window above the dresser drawers. Being tall and slim it would still be hard to get out, especially feet first. Wife would probably get stuck. Don't tell her I said that! I hate to think of even trying.

My emergency window does not have a screen. Does anyone else have a screen?

I've never thought about giving the emergency exit windows an annual "test open and shut" cycle... not a bad idea. Sweet Wife says she was unaware the trailer even HAD emergency exits.

Shame on me.

The exit window in the bedroom has a screen and is meant to also be used for ventilation, but in 10 years we have never opened it. The exit window over the dining table has no screen, (that is, the part you would crawl out through) there is a small section of that assembly that cranks open (with a screen)
