The frameless windows is a new thing for Jayco. While they do look good, I wonder if this is going to be a re-curring issue with the new design.

Kinda glad I have the older style windows

I love the look just hopefully thus doesn't become a bugged issue.

I called my dealer's service department and the service guy said bring it in and they will fix them. It is forty miles one way to the dealer, not a happy camper.

My drive was also a 40 mile trip so I feel your pain

I like the look too. The interesting thing is that it is new. When we looked at the brochure they still had 2013 pictures in it with the low style windows. My wife said we may just not open our windows. Almost a shame but she has allergies so she needs filtered air a lot anyway

I had the same issue on my eagle HT 27.5 rlts. there are two rivets that hold the window crank on the frame. After I removed the screen to prevent damaging it I drilled out the rivets, removed the crank assembly, slid the arm rollers back in the track and riveted the crank back in. Sofar I have had no more problem and I just make sure I don't over tighten the windows when I close them.

When I was first looking for a fix I was thinking the rivets were screws and I could easily unscrew the crank and get the arm back in the track. After getting my screw driver and glasses I discovered they were rivets, what a poor design. I will have to find my pop riveter and probably have to paint some white rivets black or see if I can find some black ones. Not having to haul my camper back to the dealer will save me about $30 in diesel.

Picked the camper up today from dealer. Took them 2 days was told they had to straighten out the arms on the 2 windows and replace the rollers on them. Also they told me to wipe some silicon lube on all the window seals to help prevent them from sticking, they believe this might be the cause of the glide wheels popping out of the track. The windows are sticking to the seals which is causing the glide wheels to pop out of the track.

Good info on putting lube on the seals. When I open my windows I can feel the resistance until the glass unsticks itself from the seals. I drilled out my rivets on the crank mechanism yesterday so I could get the roller back in the track. I used a black sharpie to color the new rivet heads to match the window frame. I will now carry my riveter, drill and correct size bit with me so I can fix any future mishaps on the road if they occur. By the way 3/16 worked best to drill the rivets out and I used a 3/16 diameter rivet to put back in.
Thanks everyone for all the good info

I've got the same windows on my new trailer. I think there is a little re-training of the brain on opening these windows that has to happen. I have instructed all in my family to "turn the knob until resistance is then gently turn to increase pressure until the window releases from the seal". I can easily see the mechanism (which seems a bit flimsy) bending or deforming if to much pressure is applied to soon.
