I keep an expired credit card in the trailer to slide in between the gasket and the window to get the glass unstuck.
I've had the trailer 3 years and the glass still gets stuck to the gasket. If the sticking decrease over time, how much time?

Here is your 303 for the rubber gaskets. It's good for all rubber as a protectant. And, here is a home made window popper. Not my idea, but posted on this website and it works great. You will never have to go outside again.

Same as all the rest - I use a small plastic wedge that I have on the keychain. Unlock, pry at the corners, and open windows. I actually feel good that the windows seal so well - less chance for water getting in.

Amazon Prime has the 303 in 40 towelettes container for about $8. Handy packaging IMO with no liquid to spill, and no overspray problem for this window application.

I hope it happens in my lifetime!
Howard do you have those poppers? Since we are new to Airstreams, I keep hitting my head on the opened windows. It was never an issue with my 5er!

Thanks for the help
The dealer should have lubed the seals. Use a credit card to break the window free and have your dealer lube the seals.

Credit card as others stated. I just am in the habit of doing it each time.

303 had better success than the silicone... I cleaned the glass really really well first... then apply to both the glass and gasket..

But, to 'open', use the 'plastic' scraper or credit cards to 'pry' up a corner on left or right side .. apply 'pressure'... it may take a minute or so for the 'peal away' to start happening... no rush.. just ease the window up.. then clean and apply the 303... or silicone spray if that's all you have at the moment.

you can get 303 at West Marine.. or other fine Marine or RV dealers as it is recommended on Sunbrella fabrics!

All those tips work well and amazing how easy it is after beating and pushing and cursing from the inside Just slide it along the outside edge.

Here is the original thread for the window opener. Invented by "Uncle Bill".

I guess I'm lucky. On neither Airstream have I ever had to resort to using a card or other. Mine open when I use a little tug on each corner outside. I waxed the windows with Nu Finish, maybe that is why?

Thanks everyone for your quick and helpful responses. I got the window open with a credit card. Nice trick. Got the 303 from a car parts place up the street. Should be good to go camping at my warehouse parking lot this PM to see of everything works before we head out into the vast unknown. Im sure there will be more questions.
