Exit Window is stuck.

We have been trying to open the window over the sink which is the Exit window. Our camper is a 2016 Flagstaff T19QBHW. We've had it open once or twice. Help please!

Hello,

I find the seal is pretty sticky after sitting. I just hit the end of handle with my hand to break it free if it has one of those or remove the screen and push a corner while unlatched.

Mine is also difficult to open, although the screen moves easily. I lubed the window track with some silicone spray, which helped a little, but I still have to hank hard to get the window open. I think it has to do with how the window frame was installed. It may be a bit out of alignment.

I have had several of the emergency windows leak after opening them many times. It's like the long "bar handle" doesn't put enough pressure to seal the window against the rubber seal. So typically, we don't open ours very often.

Use a hairdryer to warm the glass and gasket. Follow with gentle persuasion, tapping.

Maybe if it's a bit of a twist in the wall alignment the window binds up. Try to unhook one roof lock or the other, maybe even both with someone holding the wall up and try the window.

I've had that problem since I got the unit. The last time I had to remove the screen than work at it for awhile. I'm sure if I had to depend on this as an emergency exit , we'd all be gonners

X2, plus the long handle is not easy with arthritic hands.

We had our A frame t21QBHW at Hatteras last week ! The large window was stuck . We had one person on the inside tugging and one on the outside pushing until it finally opened. Once opened sprayed the gasket with silicone spray, glides like a dream now ! Good luck, it was not easy !

Thank you for your advise. My husband and I will try it again. I accidentally broke something that was sliding up the side but, it still didn't open. Makes you wonder if you really needed out???
