We went from crank out windows to sliders and worried about the raining in problem. We found that it really wasn't much of an issue. If it's raining in on one side, close the window and open one on the other side. Also, a bit of silicone spray in the track helps keep the sliders moving freely.

Chiming in a little late on this topic but am considering adding the window upgrade to our 365BHS that's about to be built. On the 365 the only crank out window is by the kitchen sink. Am I understanding correct that Jayco replaces this with a dual pane slider? The 365 also has a oval/rectangular non sliding window above the super slid. Would this also be replaced with dual pane? Guess what I'm asking is will every window in the unit be upgraded to dual pane glass? I'm considering the upgrade mostly for the noise reduction and condensation as I can't believe there's much of an energy savings when your still going to have 1/8" thick plastic domes in both bathrooms and a the huge plastic skylight above the shower.
Thanks,
Jr

Yes, every window will be Dual Pane including the upper rectangular "Skylight" type window.
The kitchen window will change to a slider type Dual Pane.

Again you are right, minimal energy savings, but less noise and no condensation.
We have had many RV's (TTs & 5ers) over the years, our current Jayco is the first with Dual Panes, we still think they are a good investment

Easy fix for the plastic dome vents. Link:

DW made 3 for our roof vents from some scrap material she had and some foam padding.

It won't fit the shower skylight.

I used a Camco Reflective Door Cover to cover the shower skylight. I added snap caps to the 4 corners and midway along long edge, removed the screws in the corresponding spots in the skylight and replaced them with the screw in snap males.

It just snaps on and off and really keeps the heat out.

I know, I was thinking the roof vents.

Good idea, any concern about how much heat it reflects back up to the skylight?

Thanks for the input. I think since I can add them at the time of build for $875.00 more I'll go ahead and have dual panes installed.

I did this mod 9 years ago. It stays in place except when we shower or camping in cold weather. No I'll effects that I can tell. It gets pretty hot here in Texas and is sunny most days.
