Vertical sliding windows sticking

Hi, we are on our first trip in a Sabre 31-RETS. The trailer is everything we wanted it to be, with one exception. Two of the windows in the living room slide out are difficult to open / close. There does not appear to be any obstructions like screw heads or rivets, as when they slide there is always a smooth feeling, it feels as though whatever they slide between is too tight, requiring a lot of effort. The other windows all slide very easily. I have tried some teflon in the area where the windows slide, but it only helped a little. I feel that something needs adjusting.... I just don't know what

Any ideas,

Try some silicone spray, or even furniture polish works pretty good. Randy

Thanks for the responses. Seems I was a little quick off the mark. The teflon seems to have worked its magic. The windows now slide smoothly.
