Wind noise

I'm having a wind noise problem around the entry door. I've had it worked on a couple of times and that helped a lot but it has come back again. I'm thinking about running a thin bead of sylicone around the rubber gasket (which looks fine) and leaving the door open until it drys to see if that will help seal the door when it's closed.
Any ideas or thoughts?

I would just get online and order a seperate gasket that fits next to the old gasket but closer to the edge of the outside of the door frame, silicone is too hard . IMHO

Go to any hardware store and buy a roll of self stick closed cell gasket used to insulate windows/doors.

Call the manufacturer of your coach and ask for any documentation they can supply regarding gasket material when new.

I have found that over the years, this material falls off or is discarded by the owner along the way, and they resort to a home made solution. Many times it doesn't work.

After you find out what is supposed to be there for gasket material, rubber moulding, etc., then you can find after-market sources in a lot of places. You'd be surprised once you restore the OEM configuration, it pretty much works.

P.S. don't use silicone. Not designed for motorhomes. There are much better solutions to this problem.

I had wind noise in my 2011 Dodge Ram the dealer after several visits said it was normal. Having built several street rods over the years I puchased a roll of 1/4" half round hollow weatherstriping and added it to the area I thought the noise was coming from. Problem solved, available under the nfg name Vintage Products from any street rod parts store
