2010 International 23D Window Issue

We just completed our first trip with our new Airstream, Seattle to southern Utah and back. We have discovered a few issue that need to be resolved, the most significant of which is opening the two large port side (driver side) windows. These window are aproximatly 2 foot square. The latches on the botttom work find to tighten and secure the window closed, but we found it nearly nearly impossible to open these windows utilizing the two rods that provide the leverage to pivot the window open. The only solution we found was to have one person outside the trailer assiting by pulling out on the bottom of the window while the other person inside utilized the rods. Once the window was open a couple of inches the rods had enough leverage open the window further and adjust the desired amount of opening. The geomety of the opening rods seems wrong, there is simple not enough leverage to easily open these windows. Is this just something we will be forced to live with or is there a solution?

Other issues- Battery isolation (store switch) does not work, and screws securing a galley cabinet glide were loose causing the cabinat to sag and not securly latch while in tranisit. These are both easy fixes.
