Entegra door seal

2011 Insignia.
Having trouble with the door sealing properly. Periodically, it doesn't seem to pulled in tight enough at the front top, to stop wind noise or water entry. Talked with CS @ Entegra and they say the door is pulled in at the top by a pull down latch that operates after you put it in drive.
This is hard to troubleshoot because you need to be moving to check it. Has anyone had any similar trouble or advice?

Mine developed a pretty good air leak also so I just loosened the 4 screws on the plate on the door frame and moved the plate in and tightened. I moved it just a little bit and it fixed it. The bracket the lock pulls on is plastic and you should be able to see wear marks from the pin locking. I would imagine that if that bracket wears too much, you will have to replace it.

Actually, it's operated by the parking brake rather than the transmission gear selector. If you pull up on the yellow knob you should be able to hear it click into place (along with the sliding partition doors in the back of the coach). You don't have to be moving but you better chock the wheels or have someone else sit in the seat with their foot on the brake pedal to prevent it from rolling.

Just got ours back from the dealer for some warranty issues & entry door air leak was one of them. The repair order says "adjusted entry door & added piece of seal to the top of door". Haven't taken it out yet to test, but I am assuming it is fixed.

I didn't know that it affected the pocket doors as well. I guess I've always been at the helm when the parking brake is off. I'll have to get DW to check this out

Yes, the pocket doors have a rubber snubber that activates with the release of the parking brake to keep them in place during travel, a really handy feature that is far better than the Travel Supreme without them.

I guess I have the TS without that feature. But, I don't understand what you mean about them staying in place during travel. Mine dont move unless the button is pushed to open/close; traveling or in place. They will only move when told to. Even have their own air compressor in the basement to keep pressure on/off of them when camping. Hmmm...

Jeff, your Select has a similar system to the new Entegra system. That system does in fact keep the doors in place but was only available on the Select and Select Limited, all other Travel Supremes had little to hold the doors in place except a positive manual latch that you could latch the pocket doors open for travel, no such latch on the wardrobe so they tend to bang in and out.

Oh I see, that's great for me!!!
I'll tell you, I am loving this coach more than I ever thought I would... I've just gotta come up with a better line when I'm getting fuel or camping, and people stop me and ask, "Who you got in there??"

Jeff, yep, you got the best of the best for sure. Those are great coaches and we loved ours. Just answer them "Well......I COULD tell you, but then I would have to kill you" at which point you just smile and walk off. All just my opinion.

Ann and Jean & La-Z-Boy,
I was having the same problems with main door and slider locks. It turned out to be a leaking air celenoid located on the firewall where the Gen is. There are two the upper controls the air going to the slider lock celenoids and the main door air lock sliding locks. You can see if they are working with main door open. Release air brake and you can see the main door locks slide up. You can have your partner shock the sliders for you. You can hear the slider locks engage. Sometimes the rubber cap on the slider celenoids comes off causing door lock to fail. Reglue the rubber cap. If the celenoid on the fire wall is leaking or low pressure both problems will exist.

Mine leaked until I replaced the nylon bracket located at the top of the door. Had a small crack in it

We have had our Entegra Anthem for 6 weeks and have literally had it in the shop every week for one thing or another. The major thing was that the wrong size wheel bearings were installed on the drivers side front wheel! It was 1/2 inch too big and the whole tire was wobbling! Entegra had to replace both front tires, wheel bearings and disc brakes right off the bat. We have had the normal minor break in issues - that were really not expected with the quality of this coach. Our dealer kept it for a week to work on a long list of things that needed to be addressed - one of which was loud wind noise on the entry door. They said they "adjusted" it but that did not help at all - we are driving down the road now and it is as loud if not louder. We will be calling Entegra Monday to see what else can be done. I guess we are just going to have to make a special trip to Entegra to get this thing gone over better. Other than that - absolutely love our new wheels!

That wheel issue sounds crazy!! You would think the person that drove your rig to the dealer from Entegra would have noticed!
The other small issues are just part of a new rig, no matter whose it is or how much it costs. If you don't have a dealer with a good service dept., you may need to go to Entegra. Adjusting the door seal is a simple job. It's 5 minutes of adjustments and 30 minutes of road testing to make sure your adjustment took care of it and there isn't a more serious issue(which there probably isn't).
