The window is not recommended for ventilation. It could fall out of the frame if left unlocked while driving. (at least that is what I have been told)

I GUESS I should have been more specific. I was only wanting to use it when parked. My wife had it open the last time out, with a shoe holding it open. When I saw it I immediately closed it,thinking it was supposed to fall out when opened. I thought it was like the Windows on a bus,when opened they fall out. I as just thinking if you can open them,without theme falling out,it would be nice to have open some times for ventilation. It's the only real window in the bedroom. Just would need a screen to keep out the bugs.

The emergency escape window, I leave be. We do use the micro size windows on each side of the headboard that do have screens. We don't open any rear windows while underway, as the hi pressure lo pressure tends to draw road dirt into the coach.

Thanks to RVnut for giving us the link to the Emergency Window video. Testing at least once seems like a good idea, BUT with great care as I would not automatically trust that all windows are hinged at the top.

Very true I would go on a ladder outside and look for an upper hinge before I tested or make sure some one is ready to catch the window

Rear window in georgetown

I think it's a great idea and have thought about doing this with ours.

Why not take advantage of it if the window is properly hinged and won't fall out and it save you a step in a real emergency. LOL!

I seem to recall someone posted a while back that they used a wooden dowel as a holder.

Often thought about making a screen that attached via Velcro.

Check out this link http://www.jeff-z.com/rv/amods/amods.html

About halfway down the page. Pretty nice, simple and clean mod using two 45 degree pvc elbows.
