Default Ready For A Weird One?

Hello All, So I've noticed with my GT 5spd. When I go to roll the windows up or down when the window is at the end of it's travel. That split second where the window is trying to go further up or down but is at it's limit. There is a extra "load" on the system from the window not being able to travel any further. So, during that "load" time. The idle on my car is affected!!! Yep.... the idle drops. Is this common? Does anyone know what could cause this or why? Also, I bought the GT with a two trailer hitches in front and the electrical plugins. This car was towed behind a RV for some 30k miles. Could it be when they tapped into the electrical for the plugs/light control. Thanks to all.

I thought most cars do this. The glass can't go no further up so the motor strains trying to push it up which causes it to pull more amps which puts a load on the alternator which loads the engine which causes a drop in RPM's. Sorry, lots of which's there lol. I always considered it normal.

But I might add to have your battery load tested to be sure.
