We live close enough to ETI, they are the ones on the new trailers. I think $250.00 a piece..

That window/rockguard combo was discontinued by the manufacturer, or ETI would likely still be using it.
I've had no issues.
I got pretty much the last of these windows. Another good advantage with them is they are dual glazed, whereas the one replacing it was only single glazed, but with a better sealing rock guard.

I don't think ours has ever been opened, just as if there was a venting window on the rear of the trailer it would never get used either. With the two front side, and two rear side windows operating, along with the roof vents, you get all the ventilation you would ever need.

I would like to know if any elis is have a problem with this much moisture building up between the front window and the outer rock guard? What I think is happening the rubber seal on the rock guard is covering the bottom weep holes on the front window and not leaving any ventilation between the rock guard and the window. I have had so much water build up between the rock guard and the window that one time when I opened the rock guard cover it gave me a literally bath soaking my shirt all the way through. This moisture you see in the pictures accumulated over a weeks time while the trailer what's in storeage.

This pictures is of the weep holes on the bottom of the front window between the rock guard and window. I believe the rubber gasket from the rock garden is blocking the inner weep hope trapping the moisture.

In this picture you are looking up at the bottom of the rock guard rubber seal .I believe this seal is what is covering the bottom inside weep holes.

Mine collects some water also but maybe not as much as yours. The inside of the rock guard was starting to get a bit mildewy so I started leaving the rock guard open a crack when parked in storage. The improved air circulation and better drainage solved that issue immediately.

This is one reason why I love this forum! I noticed the same this weekend, but haven't gotten the chance to post the question yet! I also got a shower when opening it! My short term solution was to lock the rock guard partially open. My fear is that if the water was to be in there, it might freeze and cause damage during the winter. (Luckily, down here we are still to months from freezing weather)
