Loose window handles

We are having trouble with the handles from the sliding windows coming off when we slide the windows open. Does anybody else have that problem and what can we do about it? Thanks.

I take it that the aluminum handle has come loose from the glass. I had a previous coach that had a couple of these do this and I cleaned the glass and frame; then used clear silicone to secure them together. Tighten the groove if need be.

I have had good results with Ultra-Violet Glass Glue from www.glass-etching-kits.com
They have a small sample bottle for around $4.00. You will find it listed in the left sidebar under "uv glue"
