Window lever knobs for our 2018 Intíl

Every time we open the windows- hold the little square knobs on the lever poles- we accidentally pull them off or they turn because they arenít attached; theyíre just slid on, not screwed on or tight. Is there a little screw used to tighten them on thatís possibly missing?

I just used red Locktite and put a generous amount in the handle and slid on the metal lever. All mine were easy to remove - too easy. I'm sure super glue or such would also work but Locktite is easy to use and possibly easy to remove handle if ever necessary. All my window seals stick if not used for a week or two causing a great torgue on the handles. There are no screw used on any Airstream of late I have observed. This took care of my problem. Airstream recommends olive oil on the seals - I have mixed results but seem to do no harm.

Thanks for that. It's just a little annoyance when we aren't paying close attention while opening the windows. And since our AS has been parked for long period of time (that's another story), in Southern California, our windows do stick- so thanks for the reminder of applying a little olive oil to the seals, that will help.

We ordered chrome metal knobs from Vintage Trailer Supply and used some locktite on the set screw to hold them in place.

https://www.vintagetrailersupply.com...-p/vts-294.htm

We were able to install these spring loaded window push to open buttons in our 2015 23D International Serenity but they would not work in our 2014 Classic.

We installed the same chrome knobs on our window levers in our 2017 Classic. Work great with the added benefit of making the Oceanair shades go past the arms easier. The shades used to catch on the old plastic ones all the time.

At one time the knobs came with threaded metal inserts to accommodate a set screw. I had a few. Unfortunately, tightening the set screw tended to pull the insert out of the knob, so generally useless. Or the knob would turn on the shaft, as there was no flat spot on the shaft.

However, I found that I could tap the hole in the plastic knob for a shallow Allen wrench set screw that I could tighten very firmly. I used a Dremel tool with grinding wheel to create a flat spot on the shaft to keep knob from turning. Been holding up for more than a year with no need for retightening.

Away from trailer, so can’t provide specifics on dimensions.

My 2006 Classic has a screw in the underside of the knob that can be adjusted.
