sticky windows

Postby tinbanger00 » June 6th, 2013, 9:26 am

we have a 1983 3207 aft cabin and the sliding windows in salon area are a pain to open and close .
what would you reccomend to lubricate the window or track to enable them to slide more freely?
Thanks for the help...

Have you tried heavily flushing the tracks out with water? On our 4207, I probably spent a good 5 hours on the few windows we had, flushing dirt, then opening the window, using a toothbrush to free up the crud, closing the window, flushing, and over and over.
Thanks
