Calling all 8293RKSS owners! we just returned from a nice relaxing 9-day camping trip. Everything went well. Temperatures decided to be nice to us and gave us a break from the high 90's and humidity in the 80's. Opened up all the windows for fresh air and finally turned off the A/C. But I really, really, would like to open that big window by the free-standing dinette. (We don't have the garden window option). It's an emergency exit, and it didn't come with a screen or a prop rod. So I e-mailed FR and she now wants me to take a photo and measurements. She isn't sure it has a screen.

So....any of you 8293RKSS owners - did your unit come with a screen for this window? It sure would make it more enjoyable if we could open it for ventilation!!

We have the 8296 model and I was wondering the same thing. Our window in front of the dinette didnt come with a screen either, but it sure would be nice if it did...I couldnt understand why our emergency exit window above our bed did come with a screen .It lets in alot of air when opened..

Curious... we have the garden/atrium windows but every window that opens in the TT has a screen. Did you get any resolution from FR?

I'm thinking your trailer might be missing it.

While my trailer is a 2011 831rlbss, I do have the atrium slide. Every window opens, every window has a screen...
