Entrance door wind noise

I just purchased a 97 CC Allure and notice a loud wind noise which seems to come from the front door. I checked the seals and they all seem good. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct or minimize noise.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll pass it along to the DW and if I live after that I'll check back to see if some one has another suggestion that I might live through.

Sometimes excessive wind noise is caused by the weep holes below the door glass. If you want to try an experiment, cover the weep holes with black electrical tape and take it for a spin. If it fixes your problem, DON'T leave the tape on. The weep holes are there for a reason.

I have the same problem on my Alpine, even louder on the driver's side glass. I'm working on a solution that doesn't involve permentantly plugging the weep holes. If I'm sucessful, I'll share the results.

Wind noise on the door is a common problem but not easy to eliminate. Sometimes it is just whistling around the cracks even though the seals are tight. You could try adjusting the striker to tighten the latching somewhat, but you may end up having to slam the door. That can be as irritating as the noise while driving.

I had a terrible noise in my door so I went and bought some 3/4 x 3/4 black foam insulation and put it all the way up on the forward part of the door frame. Slamed the door and quite as a mouse. Damn screen door hinge don't seal the gaskets.

Some coaches have a pneumatic door seal that inflates and seals when the door closes. There is a magnetic switch in the door jam that senses when the door is closed and opens a small air valve to allow air into the seal. That valve can stick over time. You've got a high end coach there so you might have one of those.
