Exclamation Have You Checked Your Emergency Exit Lately ?

Every Luxury Coach is equipped with an emergency exit, so occupants can escape in case of emergency.

This emergency exit window should be periodically opened in order to remove dust, sand and debris that might have accumulated around the frame which might make it difficult to open in an urgent situation.

Have you ever tried to climb out of the emergency window? Considering it's about five feet off the ground and the window is hinged at the top, imagine yourself climbing out of a burning coach with perhaps a broken arm or sever laceration on some part of your body.

What about a handicapped person, in a wheelchair, a lady with severe osteoporosis or a gentleman with poor eyesight?

These questions should be pondered while the coach is safely parked in your driveway or current campground location, and the logistics of possible escape should be worked out before the actual situation....hopefully never occurs.

Have you ever had to use the emergency exit out of necessity? Tell us your experience to help us make a realistic plan for an eventuality we hope never to experience.

To be honest I don't think our Newell has an escape exit or does it???? If it does I'm unaware of it.
