Can the windows open more?

Just got my Escape 17B today and was surprised that the windows can't be fully opened to create a cross-breeze. The Maxxfan helps, but I enjoy the feeling of natural breezes blowing through a camper. Am I missing something--is there a way to open them out & up all the way? If not, has anyone developed a mod for opening up the window glass further than the inch or two you get by turning the knobs?

My windows all open 3". If there is a breeze outside cross ventilation works good. Usually though there is little breeze so we fire up the MaxxFan and it draws a lot of air through.

With the new style awning window you trade fully open for the ability to leaving open in the rain. These are awning type windows, made to allow use in the rain vs the other style which can not be left open in the rain. Your decision as to which is best.
