I consider both the emergency windows on all units and the kitchen windows on a 19' to be awning. That is because they both open out from the bottom and look like an awning when open.

Thank you, Robert, for mentioning your awning kitchen window. We are the first ones to have it on a 21' that I know. Of course, most everyone would want the bigger standard window anyway.

The bath used to have a little awning window but we understand no more.
You can almost see those bath (front) and awning windows here.

I'd say the awning kitchen window is about 50% smaller than the standard 21' kitchen window slider.

In a bathroom window, who cares if rain gets in

Yes, that is what it looks like to me also.

Does anyone know, or has anyone had, Escape run the awning light cord in the same hole as the porch light, or say above it? The 21' we saw had the cord go in the side of back-end of the trailer, which didn't look to great..

I had the AC receptacle moved to the rear awning leg mount area and a 12V outlet added next to it. Wifey runs any kind of awning lights she wants that way, cord runs up the rear awning support arm from down there.

The issue I see is the power cord is at the end of the lights, if you want the lights to stop at the kitchen, rather than extend the full awning length, then your light will be about 1/3 smaller than the stock light, which extends the full awning length.

It is actually very easy to connect in the middle. I do it all the time for under cabinet lighting in kitchens. You would have a very small gap in the string where you tie in.

That said, after seeing them in person, these lights are not for me.

Well, truth be told, it's rather like "meh" for me (to borrow an often used word from my daughter ) and I wasn't thrilled with the cord disappearing into the upper side of the trailer, but my wife really likes the awning light. The being said, if the entry point into the Escape could be hidden, I would have no problem with it...
