Hey guys, don't worry about getting off topic here...I also have been a Webelo leader and have been involved in the Pinewood Derby's, even a participant 50 years ago when my Dad was a Scoutmaster. It was nice to hear about your involvement as well. Scouting is great.

If you feel the RV window has shifted (from natural sag or from road bounce), is now binding / twisted and is now making its sliding system bind, then perhaps the window should simply be removed? Re-seal using fresh soft putty, re-install and this time, re-center the window. Thus, un-binding its sliding track system.

For a cool video on how to re-seal a window, surf:

This would be my 1st attempt to fix this sticky window. Especially if the window was sliding good on its day 1. Thus, proving its probably shifted and is now binding...

Ya know, we have the same prob with our little window. I knew it was a PITB, but didn't realize how much so now that I read this thread! LOL

Our little window over the galley sink likes to bind up when opening/closing. We have found that the slider part tends to get out of alignment in the process, meaning the top or bottom of the slider moves more, causing the slider to twist enough within the frame to bind up. We have learned to slide the window in way the keeps the slider square within the frame, which prevents the binding.

I think the larger windows have enough weight to rest squarely on the bottom track and stay square on their own. The little window lacks the weight to do that, so we force it to stay flat in the bottom track when opening or closing.

Your problem may be different.
