Rattling front windows

Does anyone have a solution for the rattling of the sliding windows beside the driver and passenger? I have a 2008 Holiday Rambler Arista that has a lot of noise generated from the glass rattling in the frame. Can this be stopped?

We had a 1995 safari that the screens were the rattle noise source, not the windows themselves. A small folded piece of cardboard wedged against the screen would stop it.

Don't have screens... But have considered stuffing a piece of cardboard against the glass.

I was reading a post on Windows rattling and someone replied that there is a piece of plastic that slides into a groove and prevents the windows to stop rattling. The sliders were the HEHR brand. I will try to find the post. Very irritating especially if the drivers side is rattling.

Had a rattle when we purchased our 2012 Thor Ace. Told Lazy Days about it when they did their 30 day warranty work. When we picked up and drove it home the rattle was gone. I inspected the window and noticed that they had taken a few of the interior screws out of the window. I'm okay with that. Just glad the rattle is gone.

Weep Hole Covers

They are called weep hole covers and they slide or push into the drain slots in the windows. Most RV repair centers will have access and should take about 5 minutes to install, then ready yourself for the quiet that the factory should have installed. Drains will still work.

I stuck the fuzzy side of some sticky back velcro fasteners in the window groove for my rattling screen windows, it stopped the rattling.

This worked for me.

Although my sliders already had the plastic anti rattle clips, there seemed to be an excessive amount of movement within the track so I just tried a couple of different size foam pre-caulking backer rod that can be found in any hardware store. Ran it from the top to the bottom of the track where the glass butts into the track when closed. I was careful not to close off any of the weep holes. The end of the glass presses up against it and no more rattle! Seemed to also eliminate a lot of the wind noise too.

I have gathered a lot of ideas and information from the comments posted. I have ordered some Hehr anti-rattle clips after discovering that the windows did not have any. Hopefully that will alleviate the excess noise. Thanks for all the comments.

We went around the window with duct tape, just looks like window trim, when the window's closed you don't even see it
