Frameless Windows

We have a North Pointe 377 RLBH with frameless windows. Has anyone found a way to open the windows further than the cranks allow for? Also the emergency exit window in the bedroom, have you been able to find a way to extend the rod to allow the window to open further. We are also thinking of having a fantastic vent fan installed in the main bedroom, anyone else have this done? Does it help to keep the room cooler?

We just picked up a 2017 29rkds with the frameless windows. I do like the wondows and agree that they do not open far enough. Unless you change the the crank mechanism i do not see a way to open them farther. I have installed a fantastic fan on a older unit that we owned and we loved it. It will pull plenty of cool outside air into your unit. I would install one of those first before modifying your windows. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the results without spending money on window mods. Good luck and happy camping.

We are going to have our dealer look at adding the fan in the fall after we pull off our seasonal site, I am glad to hear it really helped.

Glad we have the slide windows in our rig. Believe we get more/better ventilation.

Frameless look nice though.

I agree about the slides you can get a good breeze with them verses the frameless. The only advantage i see on the frameless is the looks and we are able to leave them open when it rains. I will probably end up installing a fantastic fan in our unit before the seasons done because the frameless windows have a small opening.

Our last RV had frameless windows like the one we have now, and we were never bothered by the fact that they don't open very far. It can pour down rain, and you don't have to close them like you do the slider type. And we always have plenty of ventilation. We've also had Fantastic Fans on our last four campers - it's amazing the difference it makes.

We do love the look of the frameless and the trade off is you loose some of the opening, but I have not seen any black streaks from the frames yet either

I just installed a Maxxair fan in my White Hawk. I didn't realize how cheap and ineffective the factory fan was. My wife occasionally cooks food inside which sets off the fire alarm every time. We will see this coming weekend how the new fan performs but so far it's like a vacuum cleaner from what I can tell

While most of us agree frameless windows look nice, keep in mind if you have dual pane versions the cost to repair after they leak is double. Yes, double the cost of repairing a standard frame window.

And all dual pane windows will leak eventually.

OK so we got the double pane windows on our new unit. For those of you out there who have these windows have you experienced them leaking. And if so how long did you own the unit until they did. Just curious, this is our 1st unit with the double pane windows. Thanks.
