Sliding Windows

Does anyone have difficulty opening and closing the horizontal slide windows in your TT? If so is there something on the market that allows them to slide much easier?

Thanks...

Make sure you clean them really well. A lot of times they get dust in the tracks and it makes them hard to open. I had one that was a little more difficult and I put a small amount of graphite in the track and it helped as well. I would not recommend using any type of oil as it will end up attracting more dirt.

I'm sure there is a special lube that is compatible for plastic that will work, I just haven't checked into it.

But, if all else fails a little shaving cream in the window slider track will help for awhile.....really! I use it.

I used a little spray silicon on the tracks, then slid the windows open and closed while the silicon was still wet to spread it evenly. It solved the problem of the windows sticking.

I exercise regularly so the windows are easier to force open.
