Sticky window slide

Drivers window slide is VERY hard to slide. What do I need to put in track to help window slide easier? Thinking maybe wax? Thanks

I have tried silicon spray in the window grooves. Helps for a while but not a permanent fix.

Have a nice day - Darrel

I have used "3-in-one RVcare Window & Track Dry Lube" on my windows. It does work, but has to be applied a few times per season.

Our main living area has two large windows one on each side. One worked good the other one the DW couldn't move it. I tried every bottle of stuff (8 to 12) I had in the garage and that included silicones, teflon, bees wax, talcum powder etc, etc and nothing worked well for more than 1 to 2 days.

The original window gasket was changed under warranty and I also took it out and shortened it by 2" to stop it from balling up and adding to the resistance.

Someone suggested 303 Aerospace spray and it worked very well but does have to be used 2-3 times a season. That's no big deal and it's better than the window not moving or being replaced. I did have the 303 in the garage but for some reason didn't think to try it. Now it's the first bottle I grab for the home and the RV. That's my main spray for all rubber slide gaskets.

Check Amazon's price by the gallon and read the reviews. A gallon usually lasts me about 4 to 5 years.
