'76 Tradewind

Does anyone have a photo of the interior windows on a 76 AS. Picked up trailer. Bottom locks work. There are 2 "handles" on top of each side of window. Are they supposed to be connected with some kind of rod? Keeping fingers crossed!

There is no bar between the knobs. Just push each one horizontally towards the center of the window and then pull down after unlocking the bottoms. There are about 4 intermediate positions on detents between closed and fully open.

Sometime the window gasket sticks to the trailer window frame . Unlock bottom knobs and gently pry window open with a plastic pry tool. Treat rubber gasket to prevent sticking.

Do you have the round handles at the end of the actuator lever? A photo would help
