Default 2019 btcruiser 5210 side windows flex

When driving down the highway at speed the side windows will flex in the middle letting air and rain in. The one on the driver side let's air in all the time and creates a huge amount of noise. Since the windows pooch out in the middle, no amount of tightening will stop it. I tightened one so tight it stripped the threads in the knob. HELP

Default More on Btcruiser awning style window problems

My feeling is that Gulfstream should address this issue. I have a video recording of the noise and flexing as you drive down the highway at 70 mph. Having awning style windows is a great idea, just doesn't work out right. I could post the 2 videos here (drivers side, passenger side) if I could figure out how to do it. Just is unacceptable on such a great little motorhome. Open to suggestions. I'm going up to the big Tampa motor home gathering, Jan.16-18 with motorhome hoping to find someone from Gulfstream there.

I have a 2006 5291 BT touring. I put foam rubber around window to stop the noise and rattle. worked out OK. It is a slider window.

Default BT5210 side windows

It is easy to solve problems with slider windows. If you will read my original post these are awning windows. Big problem.

Was at the Tampa rv show in the Gulfstream booth...they acted like they didnít know anything about the window issue and noted lots of manufactures are using the same??

I saw a Gulfstream company rep at the Tampa RV show last weekend 1/16/2020. He took my info and said he would give it to a company engineer. We shall see if he does. I was the second one that morning to file a complaint. If I get a response I'll post it here. If I don't get a response I'll also post it here.
