Interior "WIND" noise

I have a 2012 Tiffin Phaeton and have a wind noise high near the corner of the side glass and windshield. Have looked do not see any gaps in the window gaskets or seals. Any suggestions ?

Check your convex mirrors.....if they get out of place they can whistle as you go down the road.

Mine started whistling on the last outing...noticed it was out of position and tried to adjust it on the roll.

It fell off...so check it out when you are stationary.

Most of the time we found the awning arm was the problem if it is on the passenger side.

Hi Chris if it is on the passenger side you might check the door wind deflector they can crack and allow wind to enter . Just a thought

Front entry door. It closes and latches but the latch needs to be adjusted a little tighter.

I had the same problem as the windows were missing weep screeds. Once they were installed the noise was gone.

Look at my thread at the fleetwood owners forum/ crossover revolving door for mice. It seems to me if the foam padding was missing,you might have wind noise, not sure what tiffin puts there.

Yes, to the horizontal window weep holes at the bottom outside make a lot of wind noise moving. I use silicone to fill in all but about an 1/8" of the slot. Noise gone.
Full Timers.

My 2010 adventure came minus the weephole covers. Unbelievable the difference after installing them.
