Has anyone experienced their driver side power window being slow? We have a 2006 Adventurer 38T and the window abysmally slow going up. We had a dealer look at it while taking care of other warranty issues, and all they did was put some lubricate on the glass??? When I went to wash the RV, I could see the lubricant on the glass and washed it off as it looked awful. I think the motor is shot in my opinion but wanted to know if anyone has experienced and resolved a similar issue.

Thanks,
Kyle

Kyle241,
Mine is slow too. I sprayed the window track with silicon, just helps with water sheading, etc. Because of this, I really don't feel it's the motor, it might be the gearing Bago used? I'm thinking after reading other posts maybe someone/business on here has a motor and gearing that uses less amps and can increase the speed by 25%

Ours is very slow also. We just live with it as we don't use that window much anyway.

Ditto. Mine is getting better but is still slow.
I've talked with other owners and it seems to be common.

I only open it at slow speeds down the coast or on country roads to get some fresh air.

Mine has always been the same speed, slow. I have just learned to live with it.

Mine was slow but I sprayed the track with silicone and that freed it up to what I would call almost normal speed. I have done the same thing with the slider windows because some of them were stiff too and it helped them as well.

How does one gain access to lube the tracks/rails, and other window/door stuff?

I just opened the windows and sprayed the fabric looking tracks that the windows sit in. That did the trick for me.

My drivers window is slow also. I also sprayed the channels with silicone spray. It helped a little. It appears to me the motor is under powered.

Thanks everyone for the advice/responses. While it sounds like everyone lives with it, I find it poor that they can't get a window to move faster when you shell out the dollars one does. I love Winnie's but you would think on such complex vehicles, a power window would be a cinch. I agree I don't us it much but when I do, it's frustrating that it takes so long to down or up (down is better). I'll keep on asking the dealer/manufacturer to address it and see where it goes. If there is any progess, I'll post it.

Thanks again.
Kyle
