Bigfoot Windows Hard To Open

Just purchased a 1981 Bigfoot 17 TT and have found a few things that need fixing. The windows are very hard to open as they do not slide easily. I tried spraying some silicone but really did not help and the same with the screens. Any suggestions. Also to open the window there is a clip that runs from the top to bottom of the window and is glued on. One of them is missing. Any idea where I can pick one up. The rig is going in tomorrow to have the propane certified and give me peace of mind. Thanks, Jim

This is not a fix for the stiff windows; however, I keep a small locking suction cup in the trailer to take outside, stick to the window, and get extra leverage.
