My coach is a Monico I had the same problem I found the lower latch was looser so I adjusted it a little tighter and the noise was gone. After you close the door push on it and see if it will move if it does try adjusting the latch.

We have had this coach since July 3rd. Haven't been too far in it, but stayed in it until Nov. when we came home. We used to own a Travel Supreme and this coach is by far the closest in quality to our old coach. We researched for months and went to the "big 3" coach manufacturers for tours. After that we put it out to bid among LD, Orlando, and MHSRV. We visited Orlando and LD. LD won out with price and the ability to service after the sale with there Crown Club. We'll be heading to Florida the first week of February for vacation and service. Right off the bst most dealers will offer up to 30 %, but it's up to you to try to haggle more. Good Luck with what ever coach you choose!

There are two common causes of whisteling at the door...

One (the lesser one) is the awning arms outside the door.

The more common is an air leak.

Someone suggest shutting the door more firmly,, That may work, if it does great.

Someone suggested adjusting the latch to close the door tighter.. Same comment.

I added weatherstripping around the door.

I won't say there are other possible causes but the side effect of adding weatherstripping is warmer in winter cooler in summer.
Home is where I park it!

Of note to the non-Entegra owners is that the Entegra door has a pneumatic door locking system beyond the standard door latch. It is supposed to pull the door in tighter with the engine running, after releasing the parking brake. The location of this pull is at the top front of the door opposite where the leaks are thought to be happening.
Besides the necessity of slamming the door harder I think there is another issue to consider. When leaving a site, getting in/out with the engine running and parking brake on/off the pneumatic grabber stops working right or jams in the door. I think in a perfect camping experience this shouldn't happen but it does and I think that may be responsible for some of the whistling.

In a discussion with Don at Entegra if you have engine running, release the parking brake, then open the door the latch WILL NOT release. When the door opens, you're pulling the door out of the latch, but the latch remains in its locked position. Which means if you close the door again w/o re-setting the parking brake you will be closing the door on the latch, which will hold the door away from sealing in the front top corner.
So there is learned experience here, with the engine running, every time you open the door re-set the parking brake.

If I understand this right, this only applys when the park brake is released correct? If you do not release the park brake, with the engine running, the door should not seal. Or did I miss something? Thanks

Yes when pb is released the door latch locks and the latch stays in the locked position even when you open the door.
