Smile windows

Have a few windows in my 29rlbs 5ver. The kind you slide to pins abck and raise the window so they lock into a hole in the frame. Got tired of them opening into one position. Made a little template with small holes which fit into the window frame. Slid it into place...used a spring punch to mark a hole and drilled new ones. Some windows I added 2-3 holes and some I added 4. Opening the windows now goes from 1" all the to where the factory had them.

Nice idea, thanks. The vertical thermopane windows on our Sabre 5th wheel only have notches in the top part of the frame so it's all or nothing. I might copy your idea.
