My sincere apologies for not responding sooner…. life sort of got in the way.

I did post pics on this thread, but somehow they’ve been removed. No idea why. Perhaps a technical glitch? A moderator found them unsuitable? No idea. I will try again to post a few pics with this post.

I do know that the windows are removed from outside the van, but access to the screws that hold the clamp ring in place are inside. I had already removed nearly everything from the Roadtrek’s interior before I removed the kitchen window. So, upon thinking about the process, I really can’t see how one would get access to the screws without removing the sink / galley counter. As the bottom portion of the window serves as a vent for the fridge, I’d assume the fridge would have to come out as well to get access, but I’m not certain on that. I don’t remember the fridge being attached to the window, but I think there was sheetmetal that served as ducting going from the fridge to the bottom of the window/vent. It’s been 2 years, so I’m not 100% certain on that.

Again, I do apologize that I can’t be more helpful. I just went nuts and tore the whole thing apart when I saw the bit of rust, the old fiberglass batting insulating the walls, etc. Still not done with the rebuild, but hope to be by this summer.

Is there an easier way?
Hi CanuckRV, I was wondering how you did remove the back side Cranck windows in your Roadtrek? Did you have to remove the wall panel to get access to the screws around the windows or you had direct access just by removing the rubber trim around? It seems that with mine I would have to remove the wall panel because the screws are behind it even if I check behind that rubber trim around both windows 🤔

Hi CanuckRV, I was wondering how to remove these 2 Cranck side windows in the back? Do you have to remove the wall panel to get access to the screws around the windows or you just had to remove that rubber trim around windows to get access to the screws (Iím only talking about the 2 back side windows here, not the fridge window) in my Roadtrek the screws seems to be behind the wall panel, I canít see all of them even with the rubber trim removed.
Thanks for your help with the proper procedure

Just took a look you would have to take the wall pannel off but you probably should anyway if you were trying to fix rust. It looks easy to do.
