Randy Bishop is around. According to his profile, he logged on Jan 14.
Well, I sure don't see Randy posting- maybe I'm following the wrong threads.
escape window placement- it may be that the one just mentioned was a first attempt just to comply with a new requirement or something, but I think it's stock. They obviously came to their senses location-wise very shortly thereafter and moved the escape window to the rear. (Also fire code-wise, which requires a second egress "distant" from the first.)
Side note on the subject of attempted-compliance-but-badly placed: The brand-new Lil Snoozy's "escape" window is over the kitchen counter, and only inches from the door! Don't know how that got past inspectors...The effect is that there's really only one way out of that trailer, and it sorta makes my blood run cold to think that folks might attempt to retrofit a gas stove or something into that counter....
