I have a 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral with an issue that is driving me nuts.

I would like some help on the issue or ideas on how to fix.
It has been back to the dealer two times and I am schedule in again next week.
The issue is the door and the awful noise it makes driving down the road.
The noise seems to be coming from the rubber sealer around the door and the latch used to lock the door.

I have started treating the rubber with the stuff you spray on the slid outs rubber to help them slide better. This works great for one days traveling, unless I run into rain then I need to retreat the rubber again. I also spray the lock with a lube this seems to help it as well.

The dealer agrees I have an issue but says it is hard to fix...
They have remove the door and worked on the alignment.
Should I ask that all the rubber around the door be replaced?
Is this a very common problem?
How is this door and seal different than my car door?
Thanks for your help and ideas....

Many coach doors squeak; it is a common issue. However, I'd suggest you try wrapping electrical tape around the 5/8" (?) round pin that sticks out from the coach part of the frame (this is the round pin your door latches onto). Just 3 or 4 wraps of electrical tape; no more. Then take her for a ride and see if that helps.

I have the exact same problem with my 2001 HR Admiral. I guess I've gotten used to it as I don't hear it when cooling fans light up on the 8.1L, or I'm pulling a steep grade and 4500 RPM!
I've recently added exterior-under-cab insulation to quite the engine noise but I have more work to do on that front (no pun intended). My family could probably give you a better description and complaint of the noise generated by the wind on the door.
I think I may have a bigger problem since my storage door just behind the entrance door drags on the coach frame at different frequencies when on and off the levelers. Also my main slide will no longer retract most times until I put my back into it from the outside.
