Yep... Same here. We have a 27HFS and the same window in the front bedroom next to the front door is also hard to open.

Same on mine. All 3 windows like that are knuckle breakers. Also the slide window only opens about a foot and binds up. Not that I have the windows open much, but they should work better.

I have a 2300 and like yours, the bedroom window was sticking and then jamming. At the rear of the window there is a plastic strip/clip, about 2-3 ins long. Pulled it out, no more problems. Does it rattle? Not that I can tell. There is a similar strip in the kitchen but so far mine is OK. Good luck !

Difficult hell impossible to open.

We have the same problem on our FR 27RL Max. when doing the "walk thru" the tall windows were stuck. Dealer rep. says they are just difficult and proceeded to pull the top rail off one when trying to open. Good news is they are going to replace three of them, just wish the latch design was better. The three people and a gorilla type design is poor.

Have 2 of these damned windows. One next the bed and one in he bathroom. Someone always gets hurt trying to open them. Worst design I have ever seen. I can't even begin to document all of the design aspects wrong with this thing. If a Forest River rep said they didn't have any complaints he is lying, plain and simple.

Yes, my double pane windows have these two locks as described.

Yes, those same windows in my Rocky have been cussed out a few times, as well!! (I have to go into Hulk mode to open them...the wife doesn't even try anymore.)

I like that bow wax idea...will pick some up at Bass Pro (I'm always looking for reasons to go there, anyway!) :-)
