Front door wind noise

I have a 98 36FD. I have developed serious wind noise at the door. The noise is only there when I am driving into a significant head wind from 300* to 350*. I have checked the door seals. They seem to be OK. I have to use two hearing aids so isolating location of the noise is difficult. I'll check out any ideas on a source of the noise.

Font Door Wind Noise

My 2005 did (and still does - sometimes) the same thing. WRV had Duncan RV in Elkhart, IN redo the entire door. It onlt helped a little. Attach are the instructions from PTL who makes the doors. Hope it helps.

There is a pocket at the upper outside corner inside of the gen slide and just below the dash. this pocket corresponds w/the bottom end of the windshield side post, and has the opportunity for a bundle of wires to run up the windshield side post. If that is not sealed properly, you will get a lot of wind noise if wind direction is 'optimal.'
Check both windshield side posts, and if there is an opening, stuff the opening w/a dense wad of plastic shopping bags, drive & see if that cures the noise. If so, you can do a permanent seal w/spray foam sealer from H.D. or Lowes.
