Ah! Feng Shui. I guess it's a good thing then that we didn't get a 21 -- with the bed next to the door. Major Feng shui no no.

On my browser the full title is truncated:

Surely that violates some Feng Shui rules

Alan, I think my very existence violates some Feng Shui rule, since I consider it nothing more than old Chinese superstition repackaged for western New Agers. ( oh yes he did.....)

Our 17B(11/2013) has the two reading lights over the right side (same as the window handle); we have the permanent rear bed. Only thing I added was a plexiglas bracket beside the sink to stop splashing onto your face/bed whenever running the faucet. Also doubles as a key hanger etc. as it goes from counter to cupboard. Same configuration (Bolers have a metal bracket from counter to cupboard)we had in our old Boler so found it natural. Never thought about ease of thermostat adjustment from the left side that is why I think this forum is great. I like being able to see the door from the bed.

We were fine for two months. It never was an issue. What WAS an issue for me was figuring out how to open the escape window (for air) without pushing out the screen. Took Terry awhile to be able to get it back in when I pushed it out. Chivalry is alive.

We sleep this way and have never had an issue with the window handle.

I am not following why there would be an issue with the emergency window for some reason. I have tried it as an emergency window a few times to check it operated fine. But the rest of the time, I just use it as a regular slider with no problem at all.

Jim,
The emergency window in later 19' models are awning type non slider windows with a metal bar that holds the window open. This bar intrudes a little into the sleeping area, about as much as the pull down shades.

Some folks only crack the egress window. (I've done it with a binder clip when it's raining), that would place the handle about 6" hanging over your head(s). When the window is all the way open, only about 1-1/2-2" is over the dinette (cushion is thicker, to prevent being jabbed in the back). When the window is closed, the handle lays perpendicular to the window frame.
