    Windows difficult to open

    Anyone having difficulty opening the windows -- the ones which slide up and down? Two releases must be pushed inward (takes both hands). Only 1 window works easily. The others will raise only a little and seem to hit something.

    We had a couple that were difficult to open and seem to be getting easier the more they're opened. I don't like that they only have one latched open position...I may try drilling another set of holes in the frame to allow it to latch at a lower position.

    Another thing was that I had to remove the opening knob on the large window by the dining table to be able to fully close the night shade...it was in the same postion as the table edge and you couldn't lower the shade past that point.

    Robert and Sheila, when we first started camping in our Solitude, the windows were a bit stiff and difficult to open. Over time and after many uses, they have loosen up and are much easier to open. I do wish the windows would open wider. That's one thing I do miss about my old TT. The Passport had windows that would slide open from side to side, opening wide. It had great air circulation.

    We have experienced the same "stiff" issues with our 337, and like Dave and Monica, wish there were more options for locking points. I pointed this out to our dealer...it just went in for service after our inaugural trip...I will be interested to see if they can fix it, or if we just need to put a few hundred openings/closings on them to loosen them up.
