Cleaning side windows in slide outs.

We have a 2014 CC 36 CKTS. Weve cleaned all our window inside except for the side windows in slide outs. It appears you have to unscrew all the screws around the window frame. Is this the case?

Simply remove the screens from the inside and clean the windows. You carefully slide the screens up an inch or so and bow them just a bit … they come right off.

Ive cleaned all the windows except for the two small windows. They are screwed to the frame of the window.

Sorry, I don't understand why you can't clean your windows. I've owned fivers since 1998 and all windows have been at arms reach whether you move the sliding pane over or you remove the screens. Are you talking about the tinted outer half pane on double pane windows at each end of a slideout? Could you please post a photo?

Can you explain this in more detail?

I can't fathom why you would need to remove the window frame to clean the windows. Why can't you access the window glass?

Looking at your model online, I don't see where the windows in the sides of the slides are different than the others.

I have the same Cedar Creek as you. Although the screens on the slide out, both dinning and bedroom, don't pop out like the others, you can open the window (since there are no screens on the top half) and clean them.

Let me know if that worked.

Steve … curiosity has got the best of me on this thread, so I'm keeping an eye on it. I see you have a 2016 CC as I have a 2016 Silverback. I do have dual pane windows with the newer automotive style windows that show no frame from the outside, but do your windows crank open at the bottom (side windows) or slide up from the bottom (end windows on slides)? Every one of my screens do come out … you just have to be careful not to kink the frames. Can you post a photo of one your windows you mentioned to put my mind to rest?

From the inside, all the screens look the same, so a photo won't help. My side windows crank open at the bottom. Those screens pop out. My end windows in my slide outs (dinning room and bedroom) slide up and down. Those screens and screwed in. However the screens are only on the bottom, so when you slide the window up to open, it exposes the inside of the bottom window, which you can then clean.

the photo looks just like the windows on our cardinal trailer. same window manufacturer. the screens just pop out. aren't there a couple of plastic pull tabs on the screens? just pull them (carefully) and the pry the screens off. they are just press fit in the opening.

The screens they are talking about do not pop out. They are part of the frame. If you raise the window, you can clean all but the bottom 3 inches of the window

yes the side windows slide up and down. they may have the fixed screen. the bottom picture shows a window that you crank open / close and it has the pop out screen.

The top picture shows the window the OP is talking about (sorry it is on it's side, I don't know why, or how to turn it.) You have to turn your computer 90 degrees to view it correctly.

Thanks for the photos Steve. Our windows look and operate the same except I have no screws as seen on your lower frame. We have double pane windows perhaps that's the difference. My slide end window screens pop off just like the main windows.
