Sticky windows

Anyone have any recommendations for lubricating the window tracks? My new 32RCTS' windows are very hard to open. I know this is due to being brand new and will loosen with use, but does anyone recommend any product other than WD40 that might make it easier?

I will probably go that route. DW doesn't like the smell of WD40, I do. I tend to go heavy on most applications.

BombDoc: I have also used silicone grease! It is available at Home Depot, etc. and more readily at swimming pool supply stores. They use it for lubricating O-rings, etc. Very inexpensive product. It is not really a grease, just the substance of grease. This product will provide a lasting coat of lubricant. Use a couple-three doubled up Q-Tips to apply onto surfaces.

BombDoc: I failed to mention that your windows may be warped from installation. I notice your unit is new and under warranty. I just bought a new TT and two windows are impossible to slide upwards to open. They were permanently warped during installation. No amount of lubricant will correct the issue. I am in the process of securing new windows via warranty coverage. Lippert manufactures the windows. Claim warranty!
