Sliding Windows Difficult to open 2008 29BHS

I tried the search feature and wasn't able to locate an answer, so here goes...

We noticed this weekend that the sliding window in the bedroom and in the kitchen are very hard to open/close. Are there recommended lubrication points for these sliding windows? If so, what lubricant is recommended?

Thanks,
Steve

Our previous X23B and the current 351RLTS has a couple of windows that are stiff. I've sprayed silicone on the tracks and that helps but needs repeating from time to time. Had to replace the kitchen window in the 23B and the replacement was EASY to slide. I think it's a factor of what day of the week the window was made and who was running the "bender" that day.

I also use the silicone spray. If they are still tight after the lube, something is binding possibly due to the flexing of the trailer over time or improper factory installation.

Mine is very hard to slide also then I called Campworld where I bought it,said it should be an easy fix??? He said they use reverse pliers and open the track (just a tad) DONE! I'll know in April if it's true.

Some of our windows are hard to open and close. They do seem to get easier with use. I will try silicone, hopefully it won't attract dust.

Use the dry silicone spray and you'll be fine.
