Maint. Problems "Windows'

The "Maintenance Problems" poll showed that 'Window Leaks and Fogging' was tied with 'Skin Dents and Rips' as a maintenance problem.
Lets try and figure out what is the most common problem in this category.
Please let us know if there is something I missed in this poll.

Probably one of the most frequent problems although minor is the glass sticking to the window gasket. This even happens on new units!

Window sticking

Window sticking is the easiest problem to solve.

Spray the gaskets periodically (as you should do anyway) with stupid spray(silicone spray).

You should also spray the striker plate and bolt the same way. Makes the entrance door latch much easier.

Another common window problem on the older units are the operators.All fourteen on my '61 are stripped.

Greg.

At least that window operator is still available.

You can see a photo of it on our web site, inlandrv.com part number 91587.
