Filling gaps to reduce wind noise

The wind noise in my motorhome, when traveling, was very annoying. I cut it in half by placing weep hole covers on all the window weep holes. I can cut it in half again by using electrical tape to smooth all the crevices in the front (where windows meet the body and where body parts meet each other). But it looks tacky and does not last long.

Does anybody know of a product that can fill those gaps, looks at least ok, lasts for years and is removable in case the panels or window ever need to be changed?

Something like black silicon would be great if there was a way to smooth it, without getting it on the windows or body parts and it did no fade from sunshine.

Before someone suggests it, NO there is no gap between window and sealant, at least not a visible one. And adding a deflector, for mirrors does not seem to help.

Mine came with weep hole covers and they were noisy. I used a nice wide 3m tape to cover them leaving the little indentation unstuck so they drain. I use the same tape over my entry door hinge. You can buy it in various colors at Home Depot.

This tape comes in shorter rolls and more colors if trying to match paint. It will last a couple of years easily and looks fine.

My MH has had wind noise problems since it was new. Newly designed weep hole covers helped, but only slightly. Most of the noise is at my entry door. Looking at the door, I could see how the hinges could be the culprit, but how do you keep the tape from falling off the hinges when you open/close the door?
