Escape window

Have a new TT and the windows by the bed are emergency exit windows. They have screens in them which would indicate to me that they can be opened for ventilation. The windows have a latch that you pull out and apparently just push the window open. My stupid question is how do I get the window open and do I want to do that? I put moderate pressure on the latch but the window didn't budge. Is there something else I need to do or is it just stuck and needs more pressure?
Thanks,
Warren

You just need to push a little harder if you have the latch pulled away from the window and directly in front of you. GOOD THING THE WINDOWS SEAL TIGHT. You will notice knotches on the bottom of the window latch for different vent positions

All right, time to break out a bigger hammer!!! As someone once said (here on the forum I believe) "If it ain't broke, I can still fix it."

Generally speaking, you don't want to pull a red lever(s) to simply open the window. They are emergency only. Pulling those levers and pushing could put the whole window assembly on the ground.

If you have screens, then you probably have a sliding window. Look at the center post for a small latch, unlock and slide window open.
If none of this looks correct, a good read of your manual is in order.

Yes I've looked at the manual and I guess everyone should no how to open the window because they don't address it. It does not slide' the other windows do. I think I will call the dealer. I don't want to ruin a seal or worse. Thanks for your input, they all help.

I open both of mine all the time. Just pull the red lever out and push the rod away from you, the window will pivot open at the bottom.

Well we got them all to open. The rubber seal made the windows stick shut. Now they work fine just in time for the fall weather.

After opening window how do you plan on getting out. our window is more than 6 feet from the ground. We carry a boat boarding ladder from Marine dealer. It has folding arms to hang ladder over window sill and climb down. They coast less than 100 bucks and a great safty device. They store easily and come in several lengths from 3 step to 6 step. safe travels....ed

I hear you Ed. But with the window at my he'd and door at my feet, I have no intention of going out the window. Just looking for some air.
