I spray silicon on a rag and wipe it around the entire rubber seal. After two applications staring last summer I have not had any window stick. And, yes, as others have stated, unlatch the large front and rear windows and open from the outside. Simple procedures that I suspect some don't follow preferring instead to fight it and bitch about it.

Be careful when opening from the outside. We did this last fall - I was outside assisting and partner was on inside using the levers when...BAM! The whole thing exploded into a million pieces.

It was tempered safety glass so only a few minor nicks/cuts. However, I don't know if I had a bad window or we torqued it too much and the pressure caused it to break. I wonder if it broker easier because it was tempered?

Now I'm completely paranoid about the windows...

Window poppers

I've purchased these and they appear to be well made. Their main benefit is not having to go outside to pry the window open - you just use the button to push the glass away from the rubber seal. I have not yet put them in:

Do you have to drill a hole to install these?

Thanks for all the suggestions. I did not realize that they came glued to the rubber. I tried opening the small real window and it would not come open and I was afraid I would break the hardware. Did not know what to do without damage. Dave

The Fantastic vents on my '62 GT are about 5 years old. They have rain sensors that work perfectly to close during even a light rain and open when it clears up. The fan does not need to be on for the rain sensor to work. I Love these fans and had them in my previous '72 Landyacht.

I just replaced my Fantastic Fan this week with another Fantastic Fan. The original's flange was cracked at every screw hole, the in and out switch fell apart, the lift gear stripped, and the rain senor had quit working. I only bought another FF because I figured the flange hole pattern would be the same....wrong...the new flange had a different screw pattern...more holes in the trailer....I really don't think these fans are all that well made or exactly worth that they cost. They are alright, but not really fantastic, IMO.
