Give me air, lots of air...


Our bedroom window is an emergency escape exit only so that leaves us with vents in the ceiling and one small window that opens only about 4" square. Because of this we do not get much ventilation in this room.


Thanks to friends on the "Montana Owners" website I found that the window manufacturer makes a sliding escape window that will open and has a bug screen on it. I ordered one and it came the other day, I took the old one out and installed the new one and now we have some cross air ventilation in the bedroom. I was not happy with the way it latched as the little catch had only two very small screws in it but thought it would be okay.


Then I talked to my RV dealer and he told me about several of these windows that have been sucked out of the trailer while it was going down the road. That would not be a good thing so yesterday out came the window again, I modified the catch so it could not come apart. The only thing was that I had to take the window out 3 times before I got it right. I did get a few looks from strangers walking by wondering if I was trying to get into the trailer through a window that was about 10' off the ground.


I got it done and it works. Why is it that the easy jobs take the longest? Now I am going to move my toilet back 3" to make more leg room in our little toilet room. Wish me luck...

Dad. While you're at it why not make the toilet a reclining one with a massaging lid so that you can lean up against it and get a nice back rub? good job!
