Rear view mirrors in vehicles are deliberately mounted to break away without excessive force, to reduce injuries in collisions. I'm not saying that adhesive mounting is free of problems, only that a truck's interior rear-view mirror coming off doesn't indicate any limitation of adhesive mounting.

The frameless Hehr Windows , if you want some air from Windows , good luck . Not much . Sat in motorhome with sliders , nice breeze coming in Windows .. Pat
Good detective work. Interesting that our little sample had the same range of cover, tape and nothing. One things for sure, for those of us that do cook in the trailer and use the exhaust fan, checking to see which group you're in could improve the exhausting of grease ladden air.

No surprise about the better ventilation with the sliders. I know, I know some think the frameless are better because there's less chance of rain getting in when they're left open when it's raining. To each their own. We don't have an a/c and cross ventilation is more important to us.

The best cross ventilation is sitting outside, if the wind is not blowing in the right direction you will not get any air, regardless of how big the opening is. I have had 3 campers with awning windows and enjoyed them all.

Brian the adhesive just failed in our truck .Mirror just fell off with no one touching it . To open and close the frameless you are going to be putting stress on that window piece which could very well fall off . Hence I would carry duck tape just in case . Pat

Thanks Ron . It was fun though going through all the new RV's . Sitting in RV 's was just a little breeze which was nice with the sliders .Didn't seem to being any air movement and hot with frameless . Living in Caifornia we do have the ac but if not too hot or boondocking like the fresh air . I would guess especially at night . I forgot my camera but if I go down there again will get some pics of those vents . Pat

I don't do sleeping outside the trailer very well. I like a light natural breeze on a warm night. Even though we've had a/c many times on Cruise America deliveries we've never yet run it at night. Don't like the noise or the cold breeze.

On the rare occasions when there's not a breath of wind my little hanging computer fan in front of the slider provides a silent just right breeze.

Well that muddies the waters. Your sheet metal shape looks a little different. Maybe they changed not only that but the fan rating as well. Well, lucky you.

Hi Ron just finished removing the charcoal filter . Takes patience but can be done . Put a paper towel just below fan and it sucked it up . The best part checked the flap door outside and it was open all the way . Just for the heck removed 2 screws and put the hanger inside and put screws back .brought the fan up a little , I don't think that made it any better but I might just leave it there . Tomorrow going to cut a piece of aluminum to cover that hole . Still want fan quieter but at least it works 10 times better . Made sure the screen is away from fan blades , used a piece of wood and give it a little bend around . Pat

There is no charcoal filter in my new one that's working, so that definitely seems to be the right direction.

I noticed yours Gregg . Also when I went today and checked all the vents no charcoal . They are just like yours . The fan motor says Heng's . Pat
