Sticky Windows.

Recommended Posts

Any of you folk having trouble opening your Orion, Olympus, Pegasus, Unicorn windows? The rubber seals on my Pegasus 2 are sticking fast to the windows. When I finally get them open, there is a fine line of the rubber stuck to the window. Looking at the rubber seal, there is a corresponding line of missing rubber similar to a crack. The rubber seal remain pliable and has not hardened and the thin line of rubber on the windows rubs off with a finger nail. So it could be Bailey have got themselves a poor batch of rubber seals? :(

Try rubbing Talc powder on the seal; this generally helps.

They do look aged already, i don't think they will last long, poor quality i expect.

 

Certainly not a patch on our 2004 Vermont, like new after 7 years.

 

Not had any sticking though.

We only got the Genoa in July, so it doesn't bode well. :wacko: Probably a bad batch?

I would second this. The Thetford lubricant was recommended to me by the Miriad (Polyplastic dealer) 'troubleshooter' who came to replace our faulty front window. Just wipe the seals over with a cloth that has been sprayed with the lubricant and this both cleans them and keeps them supple so they don't compress - works a treat.

Maybe this would do the job http://www. halfords. ...tegoryId_165705

That's what I use. As an earlier post advised spray it on a clean cloth and wipe the rubber.
