Windows on sanibel

We have a 2013 sanibel 3501. The windows are very hard to operate for us. Trying to push the locks toward each other and lift at the same time is very difficult. Has anyone else experienced this , and if so , is there any solution. ? Thanks for any help.

My wife has the same problem with our windows. The fix I use is to clean the tracks very good, they collect dirt and dust. Then I spray the tracks with CRC with PTFE lubricant this stuff is like liquid ball bearings. This will last quite a while but you will have to then redo the fix.

We also have a 2013 Sanibel 3400 which we love. However, agree that the windows are extremely difficult to open and clean! They require two of us to open! I hope they changed them in later Sanibel models.

My 2016 27RK is the same. One window won't even open (thankfully it's not the other way around). My dealer is replacing it, but some work smoothly with little effort and others are hard to open and close.
