Hehr is a manufacturer of many rv windows. If you want lots of info, google- rv emergency windows. There only a few that are used and I think Jayco uses a few of them on different models, not sure.

My husband and I were cleaning our 2016 Precept the other day after two weeks of use. I opened the rear [bedroom] exit window for fresh air while cleaning. When we were done, I tried to close the window but the window wouldn't close. My husband got on a ladder outside to see what was wrong with it. The dang thing just wouldn't close. He said it appears there is a horizontal bar, in the hinge, which runs the length of the window. Apparently, from what my husband could see, it looks like the bar has come out of the hinge. He was able to get the window to close the best he could but it's not flush.

What's upsetting, other than our brand new MH with a broken window, is that no matter what we've called Camping World for, i.e. other warranty issues, it's always a battle to get the coach in and fixed in a timely manner. We're still in the process of getting other issues fixed. Now with this window, who knows how long it will be before it gets fixed and we can use our coach again. UGH!

My emergency window didn't have a screen or a latch to hold it open either. Here's a blurb from one of my previous posts.

My rig came without a screen for the bedroom egress window. I wanted to be able to open this window without being bugged. I already have the spline tool and screening so I figured it would be a simple matter of finding the matching screen parts online. I could only find one web site that sold the Kinro window parts (pellandent.com). Needed 2 radius corners, 2 square corners, frame material, and spline material for a 20" X 30" window. It was bad enough that they wanted $27 for the parts but when I got hit for $28 shipping, I bailed. Went to Lowes and got the materials for $15. Hey, it didn't match the existing stuff, but I'm not going to put up with a company that wants to make their profit on shipping. Just a heads up for those needing to build/rebuild their screens.

Since I built my own screen I also had to figure out a way to secure the window open. For now it's a 6" block of wood to hold it open and a wrap of velcro around the window latch looped through a hole in the window frame to keep it from blowing open.

Thanks for all the information about these windows. I spoke to the service manager today about our window and he said he would have it fixed before we take delivery. He could see that a bar was missing from the latch. With everything that has been said on this thread, though, I think I'll be reluctant to use it for fear of it breaking again!

I built a screen for the back window for a 2014 31UL using parts purchased from the window manufacturer & it really improves the ventilation in the bedroom. I used Velcro for binding and a little black tape in case the window had to be used for it's original purpose. The bathroom screen locking mechanism and opener were used.

My Precept 31 UL has the same flimsy latch on the back window. Would like to know which replacement window your dealer ordered. Does it have a screen?
Thanks

We purchased the Alante 31V in June. The emergency window is a bone of contention with us. Just yesterday we bought some screen and magnets for that window. That was a bust as the magnets didn't hold at all. But we are going to use velcro on the screen and frame and I'm sure that will work. To hold the window open when we want the cross ventilation we may use the fridge bar/cupboard bar. Hoping that works. Other option is to install the type of latch that the other windows use. Definitely not enough cross ventilation without that window opening!! Bad design on that for sure.

Frame is aluminum, hence the magnets don't hold. But someone makes a tape that is magnetic, you stick that where need to affix, and the magnet for the screen will stick where the tape is.

Got mine from Amazon several years ago for my prior RV.

Yeah that's what we used....the magnetic tape. But it was not at all strong enough to hold the magnetic tape that we attached to the screen. We've heard others have used the velcro so hopefully that will do the trick. Thanks for the reply!!

I have a very small travel trailer, a Jayco 145RB... so the emergency exit window is the only window on that side. I know it would be a very wrong thing to do, but I would like to see it replaced with a normal window. Just a thought, not something that I'd really do even if something were available to fit that size.
