removing emergency windows

I am planning on taking out 2 windows on each side of my '75 INT Thomas built. The 2nd and 3rd from the back. Problem is the 3rd windows are emergency windows. Are there any special instructions or difficulties to taking these out? After reading posts on the airflow benefits of leaving windows in the back I decided to keep at least one operable on each side. While scraping the peeling paint off of the 2nd window I broke it so I figure the removal would have to start there and come forward. Thanks for the help!

Leaving rear windows open while driving down the road in an empty bus full of seats is one thing, having your entire camper contents in there and blowing around could be another unless you are very careful about your underway procedures...

Removal of exit windows are no different than the regular ones, at least on my bus they came out the same way. I even moved one of them and reinstalled it in the bedroom area.

I'm either going to have a genset or a big inverter to power the roof top a/c for cooling my bus when underway...

I didn't think it looked much different but being new to this I wanted to make sure before tearing into it. I was actually going to do the same thing and move one of them into the bedroom area to replace the window I broke.

I know we for sure will have one that we won't need, still debating on the other. I'll post a pic of it hopefully this evening.
