I had a problem with my window over the cooker, but the problem was the sliding lock was bust. Had it changed by A/S at their place near Broadway. However if you talk to them, they will run through the process. Not difficult, a couple of small latches if I remember.

I have just uncleared a blockage in the drainage channel on the sliding window (on the sliding door) of my Warwick XL. The interior material of the door was absolutely soaking.

I phoned Auto-Sleepers thinking I need to book a repair and spoke to Mark Burdett. As ever, he was so helpful and advised me to try and unblock it with compressed air. (I had previously tried with a knitting needle but Mark advised that the hole is really small). 

Sure enough, a couple of sprays of compressed air firstly from above down the square hole in the drainage channel didn't really see anything significant. Then under the glass on the outside, I located a very small hole with the tube from the air can. Sure enough, a few blasts up the hole and the water started gushing out down the outside of the door.

£6.99 for the air instead of whoever knows how much. Although Mark did advise that my van (2014) is still under the base manufacturer's warranty should I need a new window. Even then I would have to pay Auto-sleepers for there tinting of the glass.

Well done Mark.
