So just to clarify, there is no regular Battery disconnect switch that turns off the coach 12V systems on PC's?
Yes there is.  On our 2350 and is common with most PCs, the switch is located next to the entry door, mounted on the side of the sink base cabinet.  I believe that kill-all switch activates the solenoid pictured earlier.  But with everything killed, there is still a parasitic battery drain.  That is why people discuss disconnecting the batteries to assure there is no drain at all.

how far can the emergency window be opened before it falls out?  Can it be put back in place without difficulty if it does come out.

The stick Bob gave us was 13" long, no problem putting in or out or window falling out.
But don't push it too high. I found it easy to get it back in & closed but it was not exactly in the right place.
You could still drive with it that way.

Since we are talking "windows".....
We appreciate our thermal panes.  No broken seals yet (no fogging glass) and its been near 10 years.  They are nice for a more quiet sleep in noisy places like rest areas and Walmarts of which we often utilize.  They also are warm in high altitude camping when the temp drops below 50.  Our rear corner bed has lots of glass so having them thermal is quite beneficial.  I suppose you could request to have just the bedroom glass thermal, though not sure if it's worth it.  In our 2350, it just might benefit since we can close the bedroom off from the rest of the cabin with that pleated curtain to help retain bedroom heat.

Good Morning.  Just to chime in on this topic.  We don't have a PC as yet but in our experience with Class A's we have had very good luck with Coach-Net for Towing and assistance.  Kinda pricey tho.   We used the extended warranty for the Radiator repair that was necessary on our 2005 Country Coach but only with a lot of pushing on our part.  Don't remember the company but got it thru Guaranty in Oregon.

Keelhauler, how far can the emergency window be opened before it falls out?  Can it be put back in place without difficulty if it does come out.  I agree the small opening window does allow for fresh air when using the fan...But more is better, just dont want to get over my head if emergency window falls out.

we have a 2016 2351. We had thermo-pane windows installed which are crank open type. They help keep cool in during summer and heat in during cool/cold weather travel. We also had three fantastic fans installed; one in the bath , one over the foot of the rear bed and one near the entrance. The resulting breeze can be a gale or a whisper depending on haw many fans you want on and how many windows are opened. Works very well as the AC is too loud for us. I would love to see Phoenix come out with a ducted AC unit. If you see Earl at the show, tell him I'll buy the first on off the line. I would also suggest building a 2351 on a E-450 chassis. Ours rides and handles very well.  (Earl suggested this and was right) We had surround sound installed. Waste of money for us. The upgrade radio was a poor choice for us. Letters and numbers too small and a bad reflection making it impossible to see map or back up camera. I have the upgrade you can have.  The power awning is great. I also had a higher dome installed in the shower as I am 6'3". Works well. Also had the swivel passenger seat, euro chair, and electric sofa installed. Wife sleeps on the sofa bed and likes it. Hope this helps.

Here is what we do.
The egress window easily opens with two latches. We got a small length of wood to hold the window open. Be careful the window cannot be open wide as it is designed to fall out. If fact it did and we were still at the factory. Bob made us a short wooden piece to hold it open the proper amount.
Of course there is no screen. We got a piece of screening from the hardware store and velcro strips to adhere to the screen and the window frame. Then we leave the screen in place and when we need the extra ventilation we pull loose the screen prop open the window and reattach the screen.
But in most cases the fan really gets a nice breeze going through the small window.

Just before going to the Tampa RV show yesterday we heard that Blue Ox sends a team to service their tow bars, was also told to be there early as it's a popular service.  Even though we arrived when the gates opened I still stood in line for 30 minutes to register. For $35 they dissemble the entire unit, lubticate and replace worn parts.  Some had brought theirs with them on handcarts, if you don't they take your number, call when your up and take you in a cart to your car, I had mine in the back of the CRV and service it on the spot.
I don't know where else they offer the service but would guess it would be most other major shows.

If ordering a new PC, you can request the factory install the type of window you want there.  If buying a used PC, make sure what you want will fit in the opening before buying it.

We have the old style sliding windows in our 2350.  They are real good for flow-thru ventilation, but easily broken into if left unlocked.  The current-day top-hung windows don't allow for nearly as much air on their own, but turn on the Fantastic fan to the lowest setting, and you get a lot of air.  The top-hung windows are much better for rain protection when open and you can't crawl through them either.  They also are better for exceptionally windy days to control the gusts better.  Also when open, they don't allow direct sunlight in on warmer days, so the interior stays a little cooler.

With our old sliders, we have a pull-down awning on the driver side dinette window to protect it when open while raining.  On the passenger side we can open the main awning a foot or more to protect our open slider windows on that side, so we have a way to work our sliders just fine.  But I personally prefer the current-day top-hung windows for the reasons I mentioned.  Oh, they just look nicer too.

I do understand your concern.  I have to admit, it is nice to sleep with our slider wide open when the conditions are right.  It can feel as though we are sleeping outside.
