While the larger opened widow would allow a larger volume of air to enter and exit using the fan, we may lose the "breeze" effect such as we have through the dinette and galley windows with their somewhat limited opening.  Although I haven't tried it yet, I think by opening the escape window a few inches would bathe the bed in a nice breeze as opposed to a larger opening.  Perhaps keelhauler has experimented with his window.  With the 2350-1, the bed is flush with bottom of window.

Well, the window by the bed is a problem for us with our rig.  All the windows are something less than we would desire.   We like windows that open much wider.  On our previous rig, we had twin beds in the back across the van camper (Roadtrek 210) with really nice sized windows on each wall and loved to open them full blast and enjoy the sounds out in the woods and the amount of air circulation.  

The windows not opening further are, in my opinion, probably the biggest complaint we would have for our PC.   I think I will pursue some mod for the escape window.  I didn't know it could be opened the length stated for the stick without causes problems.  If you only opened it four or five inches it would quadruple the air flow.   Another project for spring!

Interesting input Paul.  It sounds like if you could do it second time, you would request slider-windows instead.  Our sliders open 40-45%, not quite 50%.

Out of curiosity, I once opened our slider escape window as if to escape.  I immediately realized the importance to make sure the foam gasket was seated properly during the closing process.  If not being very careful, that gasket would have folded over itself in a bad way, maybe to cause an air or water leak.

Maybe the current day design is more forgiving.

Thanks Ron....thought I was having a senior moment here.  Thought it would be a RIVA etc standard on all RV's.  Was just thinking about switching off the system to work on.

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.
