hi...we love our outback..truly love it. but if we could change just one thing, it would be to replace the window on either the front or back...or both!!..with one that opens. although we have the window in the door, and both windows by the dinette open (sliders)...we find sometimes that it needs more air flow. does anyone have any thoughts on replacing these windows?? we have already contacted team trillium in calgary and it seems that the manuafacturer of these windows does make one that opens,,but it is slightly smaller than our opening would be.

What is the size of the opening? Scamp sells opening windows that are 19" x 43-1/2 (don't quote me on the size!). If you want to have one made check with: Sunview Industries in Summerland B.C. or Buccaneer in Hillsboro, OR or maybe you can find the exact size you need from RV Doctor George

I thoroughly understand the "need" to have more windows that open. Cross ventilation is GREAT!

Hi: Theresa P... When we had our Boler with the fixed plexi front& back windows I installed a 12v. MaxxFan in the roof and took out the old static vent. What a difference!!!

How did you hide the power connections and wiring? Did you have to cut the ensolite on the ceiling or were you able to snake the wire through without damageing it?

Hi: Jim...It did work out quite well. Fed the wires between the Ensolite and fiberglass. Thanks to Boler for locating a light fixture on the end of the upper cupboard for a power source!!! I cut 2- 3/4" thick plywood rings/spacers. 1- holds the fan mounting ring thru the roof. 2- holds the stapled Ensolite and trim ring. No exposed "noggin knocker knobs" and it looked like it was always there!!!

hi..thanks for the ideas...but we already have a fantastic fan and to be honest, we don't use it much . i prefer to have the windows open and the air blowing. our desire is to have the windows just be more open. but i was mistaken ...dennis hasn't yet contacted team trillium in calgary--seems he spoke with the guy from trillium in california..and it was those windows that are a bit smaller than ours. but when we talk to calgary, we will know better what is up. i'll keep you informed.
