Silverback windows

Bedroom windows open only to full open position. Any ideas on what to use to adjust opening? Seems like a stick is not a great option, but , heading that way!

Are you talking about the emergency evacuation window?
If so yes a stick is the answer.

No. Our small bedside windows do not seem to have positioned latches to lock it open in various positions. Are they
supposed to ? Our previous RV 's had side sliders in the bedroom so this up and down is new to us.

It is a crude solution, but I got a few wooden rulers and cut them to various lengths. We use the ruler pieces to prop the windows open as wide as we want them. I was skeptical but they work fine. I haven't heard of any other solution.

Hope this helps.

Same issue, no real solution here. Wife likes the window opened about an inch or two to get some fresh cool air but it is an all or nothing kind of thing.

Sounds like a few pieces of dowel in different lengths is the direction UNLESS I can find some sort of adjustable thing at Home Depot.
Thanks for the tip.
