Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheels 2023 Secondary Means of Escape User Manual.
Secondary Means of Escape
Your recreation vehicle has been equipped with a window(s) that serves as a secondary means of escape. The window (s) will allow a quick exit from the vehicle during an emergency if access to the main entrance door is not available. It is easily identified by the red latches and labels.
Do not remove the EXIT window label from your RV
When parking your recreation vehicle, make sure the egress window is not blocked by trees or other obstacles. Make sure the ground below the window is solid and can be used as an escape path. Practice opening the window before an emergency occurs, and make sure all occupants know how to operate it.
Exercise care when opening the exit window. If opened too far, it may come off the hinge. This may result in damage to the unit or window.
All windows must be closed and locked while the RV is in transit. Your recreation vehicle may be equipped with one of the following exit window styles:
Flip latch style (2 per window)
- Push up on the front lip of the latch and the latch unfolds.
- Push up on the front lip of the latch again to unhook the latch from the window.
- When both latches are released, push out on the window which is hinged at the top. Exit the vehicle.
- The screen does not need to be removed from the window.
Slider window latch style
Pull the lever down to unlock the window.
Slide the window to the right to open and exit the vehicle. The screen does not need to be removed from the window.
Lever style latch
- Remove the screen by pulling the red tab (upper right arrow).
- Pull the lever out from the sash clamps.
- Swing the lever out so it is positioned straight out from the window.
- Push the lever (and window) out to open and exit the vehicle.
If a fire does start, follow these basic safety rules:
- Call 911 and evacuate the vehicle immediately.
- After everyone is accounted for, check the fire to see if you can attempt to put it out.
- If it is large, or the fire is fuel-fed, get clear of the vehicle and have the Fire Department handle the emergency.
- Do not attempt to use water to put out the fire. Water can spread some types of fire, and electrocution is possible with an electrical fire.
Refer to the following sections for additional fire safety information
- Electrical Systems, In case of an electrical fire.
- Appliances, In case of a grease fire.
Fire extinguishers are 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.
Class A – Solid materials such as wood, paper, cloth, rubber, and some plastics.
Class B – Liquids such as grease, cooking oils, gasoline, kerosene, or other flammable liquids.
Class C – Electrical such as electrical wires or other live electrical equipment.
A dry chemical fire extinguisher has been installed by the entrance door. It is suitable for extinguishing small fires of the Class B or C type only.
We suggest you become thoroughly familiar with the operating instructions displayed on the side of the fire extinguisher.
For information on how to use your fire extinguisher, refer to the fire extinguisher user’s manual included in your warranty packet.
Inspection and maintenance
Read and follow all instructions on the label and user’s manual provided by the fire extinguisher manufacturer.
Inspect the extinguisher at least once a week (more frequently if it is exposed to weather or possible tampering). This should also be done before beginning a vacation or during an extended trip.
Do not check the pressure, test or practice using the fire extinguisher by squeezing the trigger, even briefly. The fire extinguisher is not rechargeable or refillable. Once used, it will gradually lose pressure and will not be fully charged for use in an emergency.
Do not turn the electrical power back on or plug in any appliances after the use of a fire extinguisher. Please refer to the fire extinguisher’s user manual for further instructions on maintenance and cleanup.
