Are you saying once the window is free of sticking to the rubber gasket you can't push each lever into the slot. Just push a little when the handle is adjacent to the slot. If you watch any of Colonial Airstream's youTube walk around videos they usually show opening and closing these windows. Even the large window in front of the dinette is a one handed operation to get it open and secured in a slot.

Bonnie congratulations on your new Airstream baby!! We too became proud owners last week...a new 2015 Signature 28ft. :-) We are beaming, and new to camping with everything to learn. I think we are blessed to have found a group so willing to advise and am proud to be apart of the AS community. I've heard ownership gets better and better. May you always have safe and happy Airstream travels!!

Kathy, thanks for the invite. I'll check with my husband and get back to you. We'd love to get together with other ASers (and pick their brains while they are trying to vacation, LOL).

PlanB, I hear ya on 'less is more.' Hopefully, we will be able to take Kathy up on the invite to go out for the weekend in Oct.

Cathy, thanks. We are thrilled. We did live in AZ for 30 years (Phoenix, Scottsdale, Gilbert). We aren't going back to the valley. We will be somewhere in the Prescott area, so actually dealing with cold rather than heat this time.

Kelvin, thanks for all the help you have given. Yes, that's what I'm saying about the one window I managed to open - it's not engaging the lever into the slot. I'll check out the videos.

MeandMine, thanks and congrats to you too. I'm calling that beaming feeling 'Aluminated' :-) Yes, we are indeed blessed to have found such a wonderful group.

Bonnie

Cathy, forgot to answer, we have one A/C unit. I believe that's the only option for up to 25'. It was running when we arrived and inside seemed very comfortable.

So, we have one A/C unit in the 25' and a 30 amp electrical cable. My question is - where/how do we plug it in? They have 30 amp plugs at most campgrounds, but they look like the dryer plugs in the laundry room. I can't figure out where we might plug into at our relatives' home. It's not like a regular 110 outlet and we wouldn't want to 'alter' their home.

Just wondering how to connect into the power supply.
Congratulations from another new 25' FC FB owner. As for the electrical cable, didn't you get an adapter from the dealer? You should be able to get this adapter from the dealer or camping world, Amazon, Walmart. Just make sure you are plugging into a house outlet that has at least a 30 amp breaker. Usually, outside outlets have a 15 amp GFI breaker that will struggle to power your air conditioner.
Best of luck!
Look on Amazon for: Camco-55165-PowerGrip-Dogbone-Electrical

We did get some type adapter, dogbone, from the dealer, now that you mention it. I'll have to take a closer look at it - not sure what it 'adapts to.' I'm more wondering if there's a need to have some type outlet installed at the house. I know most of the outlets in the garage or outside on the house will not be 30 amp. I don't want to start blowing circuits in the house.
