5.0 TA frameless thermal window keeps opening by itself while towing. How can this problem be resolved?

Cut a slice of pool noodle. Insert between knob and window frame.

and you can use the remaining part of the pool noodle behind your dinette cushion or around your bed....

Any kind of foam cushion will work, just a small piece wedged in around the crank knob keeps it from working open during travel.

Wrapping a small sock around the crank also worked fine when we first encountered the problem...foam looks nicer.
