Alliance RV 5th wheels are equipped with safety systems that work together to help protect the occupants in the event of an emergency. Please read and fully understand all safety functions before using your new RV.
Emergency Exit Windows
While all RV brands are different, the operation of the emergency windows are generally consistent across brands. The design, application, and location of these windows are governed by the RV Industries governing bodies. You will find some helpful safety information below regarding these exit windows. Please take time to familiarize yourself and anyone that will be in the RV with the location and operation of all exit windows in the RV.
THE FOLLOWING LABEL IS ON OR NEAR ALL EMERGENCY EXITS IN THE RV
ENSURE THAT ALL EXIT WINDOWS ARE CLOSED AND LOCKED DURING TRAVEL.
Identify and locate all emergency exit windows in the RV, they are easily identifiable by both the “EXIT” sticker and the red hardware used to open them.
Know what to expect in the event of an emergency. Activate the release mechanisms on the exit windows and apply pressure to push or slide them open.
Once you’re familiar with the location and operation, make yourself familiar with the drop between the window and the ground. Depending on the RV, it could be a significant distance.
ALWAYS PUT YOUR LEGS OUT FIRST AND ATTEMPT TO LAND ON YOUR FEET IF YOU MUST USE AN EMERGENCY EXIT WINDOW.
Emergency Exit Windows (CONTINUED)
There are two styles of exit windows, both open differently.
- Pull Style Latch: This style is generally used on larger slider style exit windows. Pull the handle out to slide the window open for escape.
- Flip Style Latch: This style flips up and disengages which allows the window to be pushed out for escape.
Safety is always important, whether you’re at home or on the road. As far as your RV, make sure to keep fire safety a top priority.
In a fire, Evacuating all occupants from the RV safely MUST be your top priority!**

Classified and rated by fire type, A, B, and C. These classifications identify the kinds of fires or burning materials they are designed to fight.
A: Trash‐Wood‐Paper – Effective against fires involving paper, wood, textiles and plastics. The primary chemical used to fight these fires is mono ammonium phosphate due to the chemical’s ability to smother fires in in these types of materials.
B: Liquids – Effective against flammable liquid fires. These can be fires where cooking liquids, oil, gasoline, kerosene or paint have become ignited. The chemicals used in this type of extinguisher are mono ammonium phosphate and sodium bicarbonate which induces a chemical reaction that extinguishes the fire.
C: Electrical Equipment: ‐ Suitable for fires in “live” electrical equipment. Both mono ammonium phosphate and sodium bicarbonate are used in this type of extinguisher due to their nonconductive properties.
NEVER TEST OR PRACTICE USING A FIRE EXTINGUISHER BY SQUEEZING THE TRIGGER. THESE ARE NON‐RECHARGEABLE AND ONCE USED, PRESSURE WILL DECREASE OVER TIME AND WILL NOT BE FULLY FUNCTIONAL IN AN EMERGENCY.
