Canít close 2020 Bambi window

Hey all. New Airstream. 2020 22í Bambi. The galley window doesnít fully close shut unless one of us goes outside to slightly lift it as the other stays inside and turns the wheel. Will be at the dealerís for MaxVents installation in a month or so. Until then, is there an easy fix for this. Couldnít find one briefly playing with it. Any info appreciated!

Sorry, not familiar with that window system myself. For the sake of just getting a response on here, I thought leaving my .02 of just not using that window and letting the dealer adjust it. Warranty for airstream is amazing and hassle free. Best of luck!

Our 2002 19' has that type of Hehr window and, in the 17 years we have owned it, that very window has not wanted to close. We just tighten up on the wheel and within a few minutes it usually snaps shut. If not, we push on it slightly on the outside. When towing, it will close on its own if the closing/opening wheel is properly tightened down.

5 minutes with a dremel... shave just a touch off the frame on the wall from the outside wherever it is sticking. My 2019 Sport had the same issue with the dinette window.

Good solution but a bit too drastic for my taste with a trailer thatís a little over a month old. Iíll keep that as a last recourse!

Have the same Bambi, 22í. Windows are a little stiff. Bought some of the (3 and 1
RV rubber protectant). After that window closed ok. Just needed a little lubrication.
