Frameless Windows Opening

Escape 21 with frame less windows in which the windows come open during travel
How does anyone get the knobs secure so they do not open in travel?

I cut out small horseshoe-shaped pieces from foam cushion material, easy to stuff around the crank handle. We've been using them a year and they work fine. Others have cut pieces of pool noodle to do the same thing. Just about anything that snugs up the crank handle will work.

We had several windows that opened while traveling and several that did not. We only use the foam on the windows that wanted to open, the other ones have been fine so far without them.

We have traveled up and down the east coast with no windows opening. I did have the door open once, but that was because I forgot to lock it.

That happened to us as well, We locked, but must have not been pushed all the way shut. It was on our maiden voyage after picking up in Sumas. Apparently we either didn't lock the deadbolt or it wasn't hooked. I had just pulled off the highway and at the first stop sign I saw it in my mirror. It was an "Oh NO moment" but caused no problems.
