    The windows on our autosleeper are sticking to the rubber on the outside, we have to be careful when are opening the windows as we don't want to rip the rubber seals.
    Does anyone know what I can use to stop this happening please?

    Cheap talcum powder. Try to get one with no / minimal scent otherwise you'll end up smelling like a tart when you rub it on - the rubber seals that is, not your armpits!

    I had the same problem and was advised to use a silicon spray around the seals, apparently available from car accessory shops. Not tried to find some yet!

    I use silicone spray, similar to the stuff that you use on the seals on the thetford.

    Hi try lip balm -simply use like lipstick around the rubbers then you won't get silicon spray on the placcy windows which takes more cleaning off-they used to sell kits with it in for double glazing maitainence -or should I say they tried to get us to buy and sell them :BigGrin:
