Re: need help with windows!!!

I just wanted to add a piece of information to this thread. I used a crowbar to pry out my first window last night. I was careful not to damage the inside metal (even though it's getting covered with insulation). I just started working it on the sides and prying it back and forth, then eventually on the top the metal hung over the window a little bit but I just muscled it out. There is some gooey substance to hold it in place, but if that's a problem you could always use a propane torch or heat gun to melt it and make it easier.

I've used Lacquer thinner on our Class C's black goo (previous owners). Use stripper chemical gloves on your hands. Lacquer thinner is nasty stuff.

Try a propane torch or a heat gun to heat it up and make it soft. Or use a crowbar and try to pry it out?
