    Hi currently sitting in our MH at the getting dinner , so we opened one of our heki roof lights ( well thats what I think they are called )
    Amy way while it is in one of the lower positions the wind is able to catch it and fully open it.. is this normal or am I doing something wrong. As I'm worried about the wind catching it and breaking it.

    Simple answer is to keep it closed in gusty weather.

    This happened the last day we were away - the first time in nearly 3 years! o_O
    Maybe use one of the other rooflights that you can open against any prevailing wind. (y)

    Push on the plastic window and see if it will open. (y)

    At Mazzaron in Spain one year there were a few who had there roof windows broken by over night storms. We had a small window in our Autotrail that looked a similar type to yours and there was a couple of "locking" catches at one position.
