I have yet to try and open my emergency exit window for fear that it will fall to the ground and break! Is this true? Or is it on a hing of some sort? I would like to practice using it just in case.

Can'r anyone anwser my question? I guess no one else has tried there exit either. Its a long way down and I though about getting some type of ladder to throw out after opening it and climb to safety. Ever see one of these things go up in a fire? I have and it is not a good site!

It seems to me that our 1999 Brave had a back window exit that was released by pulling something that allowed the huge pane to fall out. We were told that we might need the dealer's help in getting it back in properly.
(That was an offer of help, not money grabbing, I think). The 2004 Brave has a hinged window.

We have not tried either one of them. The liklihood of anyone our age getting out one of the things--with or without a ladder--without serious injury is slim.

A good question would be: Has anyone reading this forum ever had to exit through the emergency exit in an emergency, and what was it like?

We've got an 00' 35u and its hinged at the top & its really hard to break it loose. I thought it was the first time, buy I check it out yearly & its still pretty stuborn. I guess I would send my wife out feet first & try to follow after w/fireextingusher in hand. They say there is only tome for one person to use the escape window, thats why I have an extingusher in the BR.

Ok, thanks for the replies. I hope never to use it for sure.
