Windows on greywolf

Hi all. First post here and we're total newbies. We bought a brand new 2016 grey wolf last week, drove home, camping 2 nights along the way and are loving it. One question though: I can't get the dang windows open. I can pull out the clasp but nothing else wants to budge. The clasp is so flimsy I'm scared I'll break it. How do you open the windows? Thanks!!

What trailer and what windows? Our bedroom "emergency" window was VERY stiff to push out when brand new. The slide out windows in the dinette area were also very hard to budge. Took both hands to break the seal for the first few times moving them open and closed.

It's a 2016 26dbh. I can't get any of them open.

The windows are stuck to the seal. I used a plastic knife between the window & seal carefully slide it around the widow opened the window then put baby powder on seal. 3 years latter no problem opening.

Mine are sticky as well. They are just tight, I don't use the tab to open them. Once I release the lock I pull on the window frame itself.

How's everything else so far. I've had my 26dbh out one time and so far, I love it.

Great!

The plastic knife worked. Thanks so much all for such quick responses!

Baby Powder... excellent idea, I bet Monkey Butt would be a good solution, also.

Great you solved it! One of my master bedroom windows would not open. Turned out that a screw in the frame was blocking the slide.
