Bedroom exit window partial replacement

Hello all,

Was driving this week and, at some point, part of the bedroom egress window fell out. The window is two panes - a fixed upper pane, about 2/3 of the vertical surface, and a tilting lower pane for ventilation. It was the tilting lower pane that fell out. I did not see it fall out, we only found out after stopping.

I called Newmar and I can get a replacement lower pane or an entire new window. The problem is, I don't know if I have all the parts if I just order the lower pane. Newmar said they only have the lower pane and if the hinge hardware is missing, then I'll need to order an entirely new window. However, looking at he now-empty hole where the lower pane used to be, I do not see any pins, holes or other obvious point where that the upper part of the pane would attach to the frame.

Is anyone familiar with this type of window and knows how they are attached? A picture of the hinge portion of the tilting pane would be very helpful - I haven't been able to find anything on Google and haven't been able to find another source for this type of window.

Thanks!

Probably makes a difference depending on which year & model?

Mine is a little older and may be different, but here is how it is built.

The hinge is screwed into the upper window frame with the screws hidden under a plastic molding in the middle. The lower glass is glued to the hinge. If you have a little 1/2" strip at the top of the opening that will swing in and out the hinge is probably OK. On mine there is a track glued to the lower part of the tip out glass that the opening arms go into, will the new lower glass include the track? Do you have another similar window on the other side to look at for comparison?

Thanks! That is useful information. I appears there is nothing left of the hinge in the frame.

The replacement pane supposedly includes the track for the opening mechanism - I will have to call newmar tomorrow to see about the hinge.

Unfortunately that is the only window of this type in the RV.

Again, thanks!
