Hmm, If you mean to remove the 70's windows, there are brackets that help hold them open, in the bracket there is one screw on each side, you can remove the screw(s) and then this will allow the window to open further. Once you are about level the window will come away from the hinge type assembly.

Another question about the window. On my 75 Trade Wind several of the windows do not loke to stay open. If you mess with the arms they will stay open, but will close if a light wind comes up. What should I be looking for to resolve this?

Thanks

Mine are a pain too. I usually open them from the outside to ensure the pin is seated properly. I did have better results after I silicone sprayed them last fall. Facing the window, you need to move the handle to the outside of the window frame to seat the pins.

balrgn,
I was looking at your web site, you have some great looking pics? We wanted to know if the bravura toilet will fit in our 24 ft argosy? I read where the bravura toilets were too long and the lid would not stay open?

We had a Brauva it fit fine in the Trade Wind, was too tall for us tho. It did not fit in the Argosy, Lid would not open with the storage compartment in the back.

I used just one gallon to do ALL the bath fixtures. Need a primer gun if you spray (1.6 nozzle) Extremely moisture sensitive. Humidity makes it dry FASTER. Have to hold above 65º for 24 hours. I dropped my Portable drill on it installing with a bit in it, no mark! the back.

The windows on my 76 are held on by a j-hook on the top of the window. To remove I loosened the sliding rods on the sides and lifted the window straight up until the j-hook slipped loose. Getting them back in was much harder. You will see that the J-hook fits in a grove just below the guttering. When replacing I had to get a neighbor to help by pushing up on the middle of the j-hook until it slipped in the slot. Be careful it is easy to pop the rivets if you put too much pressure on the window.
