We don’t seem to see how to keep the windows open on our new to us Broadway. We are used to seeing a screw which tightens down on the rod to keep the window open but don’t seem to have any such screw on our MH. Help anyone.

Our Broadway 2019 windows open on a ratchet system.  If you push a window open slowly you feel/hear the ratchet.  Sometimes you have to open the window slowly a couple of times to get it right.  Seems to work quite well.

As HJA says the trick is to do it slowly until you hear it click, to close it you push it open a bit more and that releases it and window will close, don’t just pull it shut.

There should be two positions, open a bit and open a lot.

Ours have 3 or 4 open positions on the ratchet plus another that is open just a crack that is held in place by the catches. That last can be used for secure extra ventilation as the catch locking buttons can be engaged.

As Ron said, it will have three open positions, which can probably be found only by feel. Some of the ratchets click, but ours doesn't.

Push up about 30 degrees and let it back gently. If it closes again you didn't push quite far enough. Having found the first position, just push it further open to find the next, and even further for the fully open position. Fully open can be quite difficult to find at first, as you tend to push too far and it closes completely . . . see the next sentence!

To close, push up all the way open and ease it down to one of the latch positions as described by Ron. With a bit of practice you will be able to do it right - mostly!  content

Beware Mike187's warning - do not try to pull it closed or you will certainly wreck it!!
