Emergency window stuck?

Emergency window stuck?
Mine were until I had them taken apart to de fog them. But you can get them unstuck without taking them apart. The side handle pulls a cable that is spring loaded to move a slide in a track. The slide was lubed with white lube and has dried out. To access the track you need to pull up the rubber seal on the bottom outside that covers the slide. That rubber part has half moon weep holes you can see in the picture. Then with screw driver and hammer push the slide towards the spring to make it unlatch. Then relube making sure the slide moves freely and spring pushes it back into place. The emergency window is on a hinge on top. To relatch press it closed hard to snap in. Essentially the slider releases the latch.

Hope no one ever needs to know this - but cool info sharing!

And, also hope the use of the emergency window is also never needed by any of us...

This thread fits in with RV Safety - emergency window and all...

I'll share one of the tips I read when first researching 'This RV'ing Thing' we all do, from a multi-decade veteran Escapee Full Timer, was to do a yearly review of 'What do do in an emergency!'.

My DW and I review our 'Anticipated' (Anticipated? Nice to plan - but who knows how people react in a real emergency!) actions during different kinds of emergencies that might occur. Including different locations of the coach (Sleeping vs Living Area, Etc.). We factor our pet too. I give my DW 100% credit, as she keeps our 'bug out' kit and papers, meds, etc. up to date and readily accessible.

Safety is a habit, not an accident!

Thanks again for posting you Emergency Window 'how to'!
