Awning Window does not close completly

I could not find a similar problem/thread with SEARCH...

We just purchased our 2020 Dynamax Force HD 34KD on a third party purchase (so no warranty on the house anymore even though this coach was built Jan 2020) and the overhead bunk "awning style" window open/close knob (with V type scissors action) does not pull the bottom of the awning window in enough (bottom of window is still about 3/8" from seal) when cranked shut.

As a result that window has wind noise when driving down the highway and I assume will allow water in if raining while driving/any sideways rain...

Any ideas on a fix?

One option I was thinking was just building up a couple small blocks (or several small washers) and attach the twist/screw mechanism with a little longer bolts so that it's just another 3/8" farther away from the frame...

Will try and attach a few pictures...

It should not need any building up to get a proper seal. Something is preventing the mechanism from fully closing. From your picture it appears that the silver arms may be interfering with the closing. They may just need a small amount of bending to clear and allow full closure.

Thanks Don...

You were correct. I was comparing the mechanism on this window to the windows at the dinette and couch (same awning style windows). Those other windows had a little more "vertical" separation between the window frame and the window connection, allowing that silver arm (with 2 small rivets) to clear "a small fence" on the frame.

Really not enough room to bend that arm, as when the window is closed the bend would be an issue... I was able to file a notch in that "small fence" on the frame to allow the rivets on that silver arm to clear the fence and the window to close! Works like a champ now!!

Thanks for the response
