Noisy door

We have a 2011 Monaco Diplomat. There is a very loud air noise coming from around the door. We have had it in 3 times for repair, with no luck. Now they say it is a design flaw. Anyone else have this problem?

Has anyone tried putting an air dam on the front hinged area of the main wall? A 1" angle aluminum or hard plastic and double sided 3M molding tape to bond it to the main wall as been beneficial for this kind of situation.

Good idea Mike. At work, I've had 3 or 4 RV's with this complaint. I'll suggest that correction next time. Any specifics on the dimensions of the angle? Maybe 3/4"x3/4"?

We have a 2007 Monaco Cayman XL with what sounds like the exact same problem. The local dealer in Jacksonville has ridden in the coach and can't figure out where the wind noise is coming from. I spoke with a central Florida dealer that

Contd: that suggested I take pieces of tape about a foot long and place one piece at a time around different points on the door. I could ride down the highway to see if I could identify where the noise was entering. Haven't tried it yet but repeating their suggestion.
