Escape window

I thought there was a federal regulation that there had to be two escape routes from each room in an RV. I have a 2012 CC 34RLSA. It does not have an escape window in the bedroom. We bought it new in 12 and didn't realize that there was not an escape window until early this year. I guess we assumed it was the window under the tv. After inspecting it, there's no way it could be an escape, it's too small. Is there anyone else that doesnít have an escape window in the bedroom. A fire could easily block the door exit.

NO, the rockwood has a window, you might break a leg but you can get out, then there is a second window in the solon area. Which you would be better going out the door.

Escape window

We have a 3029W Windjammer and there is a window escape behind the couch in the living room and one over our dresser in the bedroom. Both are swivel-up windows with the hinge on the top. I'm not familiar with more escapes than that.

I only have two options, the first is to cut a door in the side next to the dresser, or cut a door in the slide behind the headboard, and the latter is what i'm leaning toward. Any thoughts?

Why not change out a window frame for an escape style window frame. Retains structural integrity and serves purpose.

Other than being too small, does it have the red locking xscape handles?

That is the same size as our escape window in our sabre bedroom. Not easy but do-able. Hope to never need it.

I assume some one has used one at one time , I have never heard of any one using one . Do you have escapes in your house , motel room ,? Myself , I would give it no thoughts or worries at all !

If there is a place on the roof structure that is framed in for a second AC you can cut that opening out and install a cieling skylite/vent that will also funcion as an escape hatch.Its also a really nice way to acess the roof.I had one in a coachman slide in back in the early 70's,and when I built the Kenworth conversion I had one in the cab over bed and another in the rear bed.
