Just the bottom portion opens.

Gotcha, thanks. You would think the window manufacturer could bother to make that work good. It shouldn't be that tough.

We have the awning window on our 19 as well. It does stick just before it comes to a close, approximately the last 1/8 of an inch won't close. I've just made it part of the routine to give it a little nudge to close it fully from the outside as I'm doing my walk around checks before we leave a site. We like the window a lot and are quite happy to put up with this little idiosyncrasy.

I found this picture of the inside of our bathroom. It looks like the center section is a little wider then FMLNM's and I don't know what the little things on the side are. It really don't matter I an just curious what we are getting.

I don't think they had finished installing the window..those look like the little arms that push the bottom half of the window open...but it doesn't look like the knob or the screen are on there yet....

Tom & Cheryl: you have the same window as we do. It's not an awning window, it's the slide up model. Those little arms hold the bottom half of the window up and it's just a quick release to close it. We have the awning window over the sink and it sticks, but like Glenn/Rosemary said, I just give it a nudge before we leave a site. They both work and give great light!
Our 5.0 was finished on August 29, to answer an earlier question.

Congratulations! We're testing the waterproofness of ours in Revelstoke at the moment :-) So far, so good .... and nice to have windows that can be opened in the rain!

Now if I could just get the nice German tourists in the rental Class C next door to stop turning our power off by mistake, all would be good! :-) At least we know the controller and fridge power display work.....
