Just happened to us, also....

Here we are a thousand miles from home, and the bathroom window fell apart (winder thingees popped off) It's too high up for me to reach from the outside... perhaps I can stand on the picnic table.

This is the WORST design ever! I'd love to get some of the old awning windows back in it... they always worked, and let in a lot of air.

Are the Phillips screws on the inside or the outside? Can it be fixed from the inside?

Thanks All!

I have 2 windows that constantly do this,i drilled out rivets and used nuts and bolts so it a 5 minute fix when it does happen.It seems that the window sticks to the weather stripping pretty good and if you try to open to fast and not let window get unstuck the wheels pop out of the track.I tried to do the set screws on the top but it seemed like it wouldn't work as it had to be bent back at a certain angle to go back together

The Philips screws are on top of the window frame. Size 2 Phillips. I went to a jayco dealer and looked at 6 different models, from TT to 5th wheels and class c. They all assemble the same.


The key is the tracks are shaped like a "G" and by closing the crank almost all the way you can line up the wheels and track and it just slides back in.

Unhappy These windows are crap...

Thanks for all of the advice....

This is the bathroom window, and there is just one Phillips head screw, and it's on the right side at the top of the opening part of the window. It looks like it was put in by a 12 year old.... they drilled a hole that missed, then drilled a second right next to it, and put the screw in at an angle, and covered it with silicone sealer.

Good grief...

If I understand correctly, that is the screw that needs to come out... all of the other screws are around the window frame.

What a mess, our 2005 Jay Flight was so well manufactured, and this unit has soooo many problems... the entire inside part of the antenna winder fell on the floor yesterday.

It is a design that wasn't well thought through. Looks good, constructed poorly. No oem part out there yet for a replacement. I'm sure it won't be long.
