I have them on our 3025w leak like crazy ruined the counter top in the bedroom. three of the windows leak. picked up from dealer on friday after repair (4 weeks) took back this morning still leaking, spent more time going back and forth to dealer than using our new TT. I do like the look of the windows but don't think I would get them again.

I have them and don't like them at all. They only open a couple of inches so don't allow for any draft.....wind would have to go UP to get inside. These are a big design flaw..they need to open a lot more....no cross breeze in my trailer. I'm trying to find a way to get them to open further.

It isn't a design flaw. When you want the windows open during a rain storm, you will find they are well designed. I toiled about them on our new 2304s and decided not to get them. With all the rain we've had, they would have been nice!

I still think it's a flaw. If it's for when it's raining then they should call it a rain window. For airflow it sucks....which is why most, if not all, windows are made to open.

I am not sure how far they should open, but there is a piece of aluminum or plastic in the window rail, I forget, that keeps them from opening wider. All you need to do is drill out the two rivets that hold the crank in, slide the arm out of the rail in the window and cut the spacer slide everything back together and re rivet the crank in.
I had a window that had the roller out of the rail. Two rivets and five minutes I had it fixed. That is how I realized they are limited with a piece in the rail.
Maybe not a good description but a really simple design.

I totally understand your answer and can drill out the rivets but I've never put rivets in again. Is that hard to do? Where do I start?
Thanks so far!!!

The reason for the limit is to prevent the glass at the top from digging into the fiberglass wall, be careful if you remove it.

Good point ...I haven't done anything with mine just wasn't sure why they don't open more.

I just got a rivet gun from Home Depot and watched a great YouTube video. Looks like a minor project. I'm not sure what is Fru-Fru here? I'm also replacing some of the shades with Levelor because I hate having to sometimes use two hands to raise or lower them...some are hard to reach with just one hand.
Thanks for all the input!!!
