emergency exit windows....why are there screens?

Hello, first post here. My wife and I recently purchased our first TT, a 2009 Jayflight G2 29' bunkhouse. We LOVE it so far. There are a couple of windows which are apparently designated emergency exit windows and can't be opened regularly (I guess unless I'm missing something). My question is, why are there screens on these windows? Thanks! Great forum by the way.

On ours (assume they are all similar ) you open the windows and the red plastic part of the handle will hook in the open position to give you air flow

now that someone's mentioned this, how about the other emergency window in the living area? there is one without a screen. Can this one be opened and used as a window?

The short answer is "to keep out the bugs". Windows are made to open by just pushing the handle and setting it on the bracket at the bottom. Screen pulls out if you have to use the window as an emergency exit.

In an emergency a screen is not going to keep me inside the trailer.

One thing to remember about the emergency window: if it's open, be sure to close and lock it if you're going to be away for any appreciable length of time. While it's big enough for people to climb out of, it's also big enough for someone to climb inside. As for the screen, it pulls (or pushes) right out. Ours has a handle on it.

One thing to keep in mind with these windows is they had a recall on the locking mechanism. If the bar locks from the underside of the latch than be aware that the window has the possibility to open unintentionally. They changed the newer ones to lock on the top side of the latch.

Funny thing, the one in the BR has a screen, but behind the couch on the slide out doesn't? I asked the dealer to see about getting one.....no dice. The only thing that bugs me is the small gaps in the seal (probably for drainage) will let in those pesky "no see ums".

We have a 2014 jay flight swift 28RBS and we have tried to open emergency window and cannot get it to open. My husband has pushed on handle with as much force as he can without bending it. Did you get yours open?
