I like others use a plastic putty knife, and can open them (once unlocked) from the outside. I am going to try a product called liquid roller once I get to my boat. It works wonders on the boat windows. The tire talc idea sounds good, too.

BTW, force is not a good idea. We have an acquaintance who shattered a window with too much force on a lever.

Hi, we never had any problems opening our Safari windows; They have never stuck to the seals.

Airstream designed these window for the following reasons:
Tight seal to keep the water out
After long drive it force you to walk around, good for your health
It take two to tangle, so if you are alone you need to get a partner just for opening the windows and companionship will be a bonus
If you try to force it and break the glass that will be extra income for Airstream folks
To improve mechanical skills of the owners so they can figure out how to open them single handedly
And lastly provide a topic for discussion where every owner of recent models is interested
These are my thought and I could be totally wrong first first time in my short life.
I know folks will have all kind of comments on this write-up and answer to that would what Clark Gable said in "Gone with the wind" Frankly my dear I don't give . . Furthermore, I like to appologize if I offended any one. If you think I am kidding no sir it is not a kidding matter opening a window in very hot weather may become a matter of life and comfort.
Thank you for reading and God bless you
