Entry door AIR LEAK??

Given that our coaches have bulging mirrors, TV domes and flat front faces, they are going to get a certain amount of window noise, but it's a rushing type.

Air leaking around door seals sends more of a hissing sound, and that bothers the passenger.

Is this pretty common in MHs? Has anybody done a, "fix", that works?

Over time the door gets "tweaked" and allows an air leak. The only solution to that is a new door($$$$). Over time the body gets "tweaked" and allows an air leak. Only solution to that is a new MH, which one hopes doesn't have the air leak.
I tried adjusting the door latch tighter to eliminate my air leak. It made the door so hard to open DW couldn't open it, although it greatly reduced the air leak noise.
I'm going to experiment with some 1/2" wide X 1/4" thick gasket material around the top of the door and down a foot or so when I get a roundtuit. But that is low on the to-do list.
