warped window track

2016 268RKS VIBE


The window track, by the dinette and sofa that the windows slide in is aluminum with a plastic insert track. It warped to the point I had to cut out the plastic track just to get the window to move. Most likely had something to do with the silver bubble insulation that i use to cover the windows in storage. I put the insulation inside behind the shade facing out and I'm thinking that a white surface facing out may not reflect as much heat.



This occurred a while ago but I figured its time to fix it.



Any one know if this plastic track is available?

Warped window track

Did you ever find a replacement for this? I now have the same issue and don't know how to fix it.

no, Forest River sent me some of the same track. It warped after a few months. Still looking for a better solution. Sorry

How did you get Forest River to send you some? I think if I had some and then made some changes to how I park the rig, I may be able to avoid this happening again.

Here is what got me some of the same track. It was from LCI. Sold by the foot. This was from 2018.

==============================

Check this print, but I believe you need 306605:
RV28274-03; SLIDER TRACK
$0.43 per foot
Retail - $0.63 per foot


To place that order, you can call 574-537-8900 and press option 1 for parts and then 2 for the "speed lane".

Thank you so much,

=========================

Good luck!
