Now that is something the people at Keystone could design, an inflatable slide like airliners use for emergency escape. You open the window, and the slide inflates to allow you to slide to safety. Only trouble, besides never knowing if it works until needed, would be grandkids activating it to use for play.
We are talking about the same people that installed the inflatable couch bed, right?

We attended a seminar a few years ago given by Mac the Fire Guy (a retired firefighter). One
suggestion he gave was to be sure to grab a quilt or blanket to lay over the edge of the
window to slide out on as it can be very sharp. Also make sure all occupants know how to
use the fire extinguisher. Max also is a vendor at many rallies and sells many fire
prevention items, including one for refrigerators like Norcold that have caused many fires.

Mac the fire guy came to our Quartzsite rally and said most fires start with the refrigerator (especially Norcold). He also said you have 20 seconds to get out of the bedroom window, so practice and figure out who goes first and place a cover over the lip of the window. We bought two halon fire extinguishers this year, one for the refrigerator control area and one over the batteries. Good insurance. After seeing his demo two years running, I finally got the brain working and will never drive down the road with the propane on. Thanks Mac.

During one of MAC's seminars he said to grab the slippery bed covering and slide down it. Also if there is a picnic table, place it by the exit.
