Crusader 295 Bedroom Window Slight Improvement

We've always been bothered by how small the opening was on the bedroom window in our Crusader 295rst. It would only be open about 2" in the up position. We added another set of holes to the window frame this weekend so that at least it can be opened the entire height of the screen. Even 2" more makes an improvement. Click image for larger version

It was fast and easy too. Just make sure the window is pushed out into the emergency exit position so u don't accidentally drill into the window's outer frame and into the camper walls.

I'll double check the hole size later today or tomorrow when we're back at the campground. I basically just grabbed my drill bits and picked the one that fit the existing holes.

I thought I was the only crazy to do this.
One if the first things I did and it really improved the opening.

Going to do this also. Nice job and thanks for the "how to".

Now just have to get all those windows to slide a little easier. Silicone maybe?
