I've found over the years with larger truck chassis's that the manufacturer like say Peterbilt and Freightliner will give you rush service if your truck is down for parts but on the same token their reasoning is if your not willing to pay "overnight" charges it must not be that important to you so it goes "routine handling"

I leave for Red Bay Sat for a Monday appt. to redo the 4 wheel alienment and try to fix the right pull issue. I hope it works. Also hope to have the left forward slide aliened to keep it from hitting the doors above the tv when it goes in or out. Waiting to hear what will fix the wind noise on the drivers side.

Good advice. If the weep hole covers are missing, they definitely generate a wind noise while driving.

I agree with mercerc44 and Pusherman, tape over the weep holes first- you might get lucky and find that's the source of the noise. Certainly easier than messing with the mirror if that happens to be the issue.

I will tape the holes for this up coming trip even though the covers are on them. I will try almost anything.

Appreciate everyone's input and glad to hear, JohnandDeb, that your experience at North Trail also has also been pleasant. I bought my coach from my neighbor who is a salesperson at North Trail so just wondered if that played a role in them being so nice.

Mercerc44...good tip on the weep holes. Will tape over them and see if helps.

Attaching a stiff cardboard sheet over the posterior part of the mirror as an air dam to see if it changes the noise will be a next step if above doesn't fix it.

My 2011 Pheaton makes the same noise from the airflow around the new mirror position but for me it's worth it. I really hated the old mirror position but it was the main reason I passed on the deeply discounted 2010 model that was available. I asked Bob why that put the old one there in the first place and he said to make it easier for them to be folded out of the way to get into tight storage spots. Not sure if airflow noise was a factor or not.

Haven't had a noise problem on the drivers side, but had one on the passenger side. Took it to Red Bay and the had to adjust the outside seal. I do think having the mirror on the side is creating more turbulence though. The driver's mirror did shake a lot however and I had them tighten it up.

Any one have a fix for the mirror whistle yet? Got out or Red Bay last week, but they had no idea as to a fix.

If you get a whilstle nosie, or a "Tornado" like roar.. Check for the optional self removing windshild option... Found a quarter inch gap between gasket and body when I last did that.. I hope I have it solved now.

my 2010 phaeton qth also has the wind/whistle/rattle noise at the drivers side window (along with several other problems) been to tiffin twice. they claim no noise (and my hearing is pretty bad) i fixed the rattle noise by removing the screen but no luck with the wind/whistle .everyone there is very nice , but i have been somewhat dissapointed in correcting problems.

Wind Noise

Ah Ha! Success!!
North Trail RV (FL) was able to completely eliminate the wind noise issue I had on the driver's side of the coach. It's now whisper quiet! What an improvement. I didn't have an accompanying "whistle" so can't speak to that.

I dealt with Rob Sanders, an excellent service person at North Trail. They did take the coach on the road to listen to the problem and check it after they applied the fix. As I remember they tightened up the mirror and plugged the weep holes but I'll post the exact repair as written as soon as I stumble across the paperwork. I use Rob Sanders as my contact for service at North Trail and he is excellent...
