I have a terrible wind noise coming thru the front side of the passenger door throughout the hinge area. What can be done to correct the problem? So loud you can't talk. Can anyone help us.

Car Man,
You can buy a small weatherstrip a any home improvement store and stick it on to the leading edge of the door jam. Make sure you get the thin- soft type not anything thick. This should help.

Thanks, Daryl

Welcome CarMan to the Newmar forum and irv2.
You could try some rubber seal lube like for slides and see if you can get door seal to be more plyable the door seal on your 97 coach maybe dried out and needs the lube. Daryl has a good idea also look and see how much space you have with door closed than determine how big of a bulb seal you may need to close gap.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Carman, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. You have gotten some good tips. If you find that you need to replace the door gasket seal you can order from Newmar or by putting some soft putty in a ball and closing the door you can determine how big of a seal you may need. Good luck and keep us posted as to the outcome.

We were bringing it home from Minnesota. Could hear it coming in the passenger door and could feel air coming in. Live in the Des Moines area. Thanks for all the advice. We just thought someone else had had this problem.

The door seal is your best bet as the cause of the air and noise. Before going too far with the seal fix, consider using electrical tape to tape over the outside window weep holes. I am not familiar with your year of coach. If the door window does not have weep holes disregard this post. The holes are located below the window, in the window frame. Since 1978, every coach I've had has had these weep holes. They cause a lot of noise and drafts. Think about also taping over the front weep hole on each window. This leaves one weep hole for condensation and rain draining. Tape over both door window weep holes. Lastly close the screen door latch cover and raise the step. This will reduce the draft.

Please post what eliminates the draft.
