Tim,

Good luck. There must be a solution to this problem - hope you find it. If this were solved I'd be 100% happy. I'm going to add the wind deflectors like you did but will try folding the mirrors first. When I was at Nexus in May, I suggested that they put Connie in a new Ghost just off the line to see if all Ghosts have this problem or is just our rigs. Don't think they've done that but it would be a good test.

I just recevied my reimbursement check from Nexus for the repairs to the water problem so they're still backing their product,

Thanks,

Chris

Thanks for clarification. I never would have figured that out from the phrase: thru headlights.

Hope it gets repaired correctly along with the other items.

How is the noise level in the cab?

I've been thinking about an Entegra Esteem but would really prefer a diesel for the mountains in CO. Leaning towards a Wraith 33/34W or Ghost 33DS but also looking at the Class A DP.

My bigest complaint is the wind noise in the cab. I've tried everything to reduce it but nothing helps. International says it is normal but I call BS. Others have experienced the same problem. Nexus should put some pressure on International for a solution.

Welcome to the forum!

You are driving a heavily modified vehicle, but I'm sure that adding that square box and putting that big cap over the cab and disrupting any resemblance to the original aerodynamics has anything to do with the wind noise.

I have a Maxxforce 10 engine in my HR 36' DP and it runs fine. Never an issue except trying to get the ECM updated and the problem was not NAVISTAR'S. The power supply was switched to the key and that stopped the download when the key was switched off as per instructions. This engine does need to be run hard and limit the idle time. Full synthetic oil (T-6) helps with the particulate filter, too. The MF 7 engine may be another story from what I've heard.

Nexus uses the Cummins diesel on all the international chassis.

How is the engine noise in the cab in the Nexus Ghost?

The rear overhand looks very long in the shorter Ghosts. I am worried about dragging the rear end. Any solutions to that problem?

Engine noise isnít bad, but there is a lot of wind noise. I have 34 foot and dragging hasnít been a problem.

Agree on the wind noise. We're all still looking for help on that. I have the 36' and dragged my tow bar backing into my driveway. Of course, I have to use a 4" drop when using it. Without it, I do not drag there but I do watch it carefully now. On our 6,500 mile trip this past winter, I never had a problem. I did intentionally order it with the 10,000# rather than the 20,000# standard hitch because the 20,000# hitch hung much lower and I will never need that capacity.

Is the wind noise coming from the right front? If so, and you have a front door awning, check to see if the foam rubber is still in the front door awning arms. If they are missing you can replace them with a water swimming noodle split in half.

We test drove a used 2016 36 DS....the only thing that Phil noticed was the wind noise by his head.while driving. Any fix?

Yes, most of my wind noise is right at the curve of the front top of the door. There is some on the passenger side but worse on the driver's side. I just ordered a bug deflector from Dieter's which I hope to install this week. Not much in the way of expectations but hoping.
International changed the Durastar chassis - it's now called the MV. It uses a signle post mirror mount and has no vent window. I suspect this has resolved the wind noise problem.

I installed the bug defector. No improvement to the air noise.

Still looking for a solution.
