Windows bending in wind - HELP!

So we're driving down the road in South Dakota and it's very, very windy. Our two vertical windows, one on each side of the dinette are pulling away from the frame and flexing in the wind... Is this common? Has anyone else had this happen? Do we need to fix or change something? They are tightened down as tight as they can go and they are still pulling away from the rig.

If this doesn't happen when you are not driving, I suspect it is due to pressure building up inside the RV because of open vents or wind. Depending on what vents/windows might be open, and the direction the wind is blowing, the wind could be making the pressure build up worse. This pressure could be pushing the windows outward.

When I lived at the beach, I used to have a similar problem during wind storms. Try slightly opening the windows to eliminate the pressure difference.

There are no vents or Windows open... Just high wind. We tried cracking the drivers and passenger window to equalize pressure, but that didn't help either. All we can come up with is the high crosswinds and major gusting.
