    Whenever we have moisture, and it gets cold at night, the next morning all my windows freeze and will not open. ALL OF THEM. I literally have to wait as much as an hour with the heat on for it to finally open for me. I move the window switch, up/down, up/down and you can hear the window sticking because its frozen. This is not normal. I have owned half a dozen cars before if not more, and this has never happened to me. Anyone have any experience with this? Clearly water is getting inside where it shouldn't be. Looks like trip to the dealer.

    Have you had the door panel off?

    I have not, the truck is still under warranty so if anything I will bring it to the dealer. I would have to take off all 4 door panels as they all freeze shut. Its very frustrating and frankly a safety issue IMHO.

    try spraying 303 Aerospace Protectant on the weather strips around the windows, used to use silicone but this is a friendlier product for weatherstrips

    Try fluid filming the tracks and working the Windows. The clean the inside and outside felt pads really good, the outside ones are the ones that will freeze to the Windows the most

    Carry a butter knife in truck. It's freezing at the strip on bottom of window. Use it to gently free up the ice. My truck does it a lot.

    My 2006 F350 windows do the same thing. Nothing wrong with your truck specifically.
