noisy windows

We have a 2014 Winnebago SightSeer. The driver and passenger windows are really noisy when travelling. Any way of fixing this?

Are you talking about wind noise or squeaking?

Hum ?

How about a picture. Is the a class C?

I looked up a picture of your coach. I see a big similarity to mine. The mirrors. I get a lot of noise from the mirrors. There are some blogs out there about fixes. I have a few ideas that I am going to try this year using some aluminum tape to make vortex generators to break up the airflow. I tested aircraft for 25+ years of my 37 year career. If I have any success I will post the results.

Well, I know with my 21 year old rig it's two things:

1. The screen rattles..I push it, makes it so it's crooked in the track, sometimes just put my elbow on the metal part of the screen in order to stop it. Think I read somewhere someone mentioned putting black tape on the edges of the metal part of the screen.

2. Wind noise. Depends on the direction of the wind and how hard it's blowing. Sometimes it's a whistle as well.

This has a door on the drivers side so 'perhaps' it's also just leaking around the door.

I know this doesn't help the OP but while you're at it, I thought I'd add mine.

This is a class A coach. I have heard that the little vent covers on the bottoms of the windows can sometimes fall off and that creates additional wind noise. May be worth checking. Unless you are talking about other noises like creaking and so on.

Depending on wind direction and velocity it is sometimes a whistle and sometimes a rattle but always noisy. Can't listen to radio or even communicate.

Check your window weep holes.

I lost a couple of the covers and the noise was very prominent. Replaced the covers and the noise was gone.

On my coach, there are 3 or 4 on the drivers side window... they are about 4 inches long and 1/2 inch high.... they are aerodynamic so the front is pointed.
