In your house? In the garden shed? Or in your RV? And what RV would that be? What year? What model? What kind of crank windows do you have? So many questions we have.

Sorry, for the glib response. It's a poor attempt at humor. It's just such an important part of the question to know what year and model RV you are asking about.

One easy thing to do is to click on "User CP" in the menubar top right and then click on "Edit Signature" and but your model, year and floor plan in your signature. Then you'll never have to list those details again as they'll show up on every post.

I looked up your model and see in another thread you mentioned that it's a 2016 Aspect 27K. Then I watched a video touring that model and see what kind of crank out windows you have.

I have the same style - I've not ever had a problem with the window except for on one occasion. Do you crank and the bottom portion doesn't open and the crank handle stops and it feels like something is holding the window closed?

We have had this on two windows. In both cases there was too much caulking around the inner window frame and the window was stuck to the caulking. All I had to do was look around the outside and slide a thin putty knife or similar tool between the window and the lower window frame.

This losened the adhesive in the caulk from holding the window closed. And the window, with some help finally opened.

After I got it to open I cleaned more caulking off of the inside window glass and inner frame and even put a little vasoline on the window at the bottom to keep any remaining caulking from sticking to the window.

I have no idea if this is like the issue you have or not - but I thought I'd offer it just in case.
