Crank out window repair.

One of the crank out windows on my Salem 5th wheel won't close completely, and I'm having to tape it shut. I think it was broken by force of the wind while towing. Is this something we could repair?

I'm not sure. I would think there must be something to adjust on them...

One thing you can check is the rubber seal on the bottom of the window, make sure it is in the proper position it could have moved and inspect the hinge.

Open it all the way and inspect the seal as mentioned earlier. Check the operating arms to make sure they're not bent and check the gear box to make sure it's not stripped. Also check all the screws for tightness. Loose screws are the major reason these windows won't close tightly if nothings bent. You can buy replacment parts and they're not hard to replace.
