Question About Frameless Windows?

We have a 2010 36FK that has traditional framed windows and single pane glass. We are getting ready to order new double pane windows and we are considering getting frameless windows. For those of you with newer rigs that have the frameless windows, are the windows on the ends of your slides framed or frameless?

I was ready to order all frameless when I realized the glass would be sticking out from the slide and might get hung up on the slide seal.

The side slide windows don't come in frame less, but they are dual pane. Unless things really changed, which I doubt.

Thank for verifying that info. The person at Duncan-Lippert windows did not mention that and I think if I would have ordered frameless for the slide ends that is exactly what I would have received. This could have been a $1000 mistake.

It should be the 8600 series.

I think the reason the slide end windows are framed is so if you forget to close them before bringing in the slide they don't get in the way (break or damaging slide motor).

On our 2015 FK, they are double pane - with frame showing on the exterior.

Ours are a tight fit with the recessed glass... Good catch.

I had not thought of that... I just figured that it was Jayco cutting expenses, since they stopped painting the side walls of the slides too.

We find it often that we closed the slides and the windows were still open. And just the same that when we open the slide... the windows are still open (sometimes in the rain too)

No crank open frameless windows for the slides because, if you leave them open and close the slide you get major slide/window damage. Slide them up and forget them, no problem.
