Winshield noise

I just bought a new Itasca Suncruiser and love most everything about it to date with one exception. Wind noise around the windshield. I have owned a 2008 Hurricane and a 2014 Canyon Star and have not had the wind noise with either. While at the dealer for warranty work I bought up the issue and had them check it out. They came back with the idea it was normal and probably caused by the location of the outside mirrors. I have also heard it comes from the side drivers door. I don't believe that, as the noise is up front at the windshield. Has anyone out there have this problem. I would like any ideas or thoughts from other Itasca owners.

but you didn't say how you defeated the wind noise. we have the same issue on our '16 Suncruiser 38Q. it's on the warranty list for the dealer later this month but would be interested how you dealt with the wind noise.

There have been several threads on wind noise. Many have solved it with mirror adjustments.

I have a 2015 Suncruiser and the first time my wife drove it, she thought the windshield was going to fall out.


I greatly reduced the amount of wind noise by making sure all the weep holes had covers on them. During my rigs time on the lot and at rv shows a number of the weep hole covers went missing.


Another thing was on the drivers door. You could actually see light through the drivers door seams. I tried to get CW to install new door seals as part of warranty work, but they were so long in getting it done, I sealed it myself using stuff I got from the friendly neighborhood ACE hardware.


Now if I could just get the large slide to stop creaking when we drive....

jrpend just reminded me that my slide is creaking just behind the driver quite a lot lately. A slide lock tookl care of that in my previous coach so I just went out to the shop and made one for this slide. Got it installed and am heading out for the lake tomorrow. We'll see how it works.

I am of course very interested in hearing how that comes out. I've tried the screw on slide braces from Amazon which seem to help a bit, but certainly did not eliminate it.

Is your home fabricated slide lock something other than a brace to hold it closed?

Is there a special brand or part number that fits Winnebagos? I want to make sure I get the correct weep hole covers. Thanks.

I had the same problem. Easy fix, removed the fir tree needles that were between the seal and the top of the slide

I think they are pretty generic - I got mine from the now defunct Winnebago store on Amazon. You might want to try the Winnebago parts email.

Another RVer told me once the dealers have boxes of these things sitting around and they'll just give them to you. I have never got one like that though.

jrpend, just like yours, the slide lock helped a bit, but that was all. Lubricate the slide, that will do it. Look at my thread in the Class A forum.

Take your drivers side mirror and pull it forward and in, at it's base, till it almost touches the side window. This will stop the air flow between the mirror and the side of the coach that's causing the noise.

We have a gasser. On our coach the mirror arms are fixed which fixes the distance between the mirror and body.

But thanks for the tip hopefully others can apply it.

If you are missing weep hole covers you will hear a lot of wind noise. One popped out on one side and my wife complained about the wind noise. I pushed it back into place at a rest stop and all was quiet again.

They tend to fall off. The suggested online fix was to tack them in place with a few drops of silicone sealer. I haven't lost one since I used the silicone sealer.

Safe travels. JD

Thanks for the info. Amazon has them for $9 each so I'll see if I can get them from the dealer for a reasonable price.

One more question...I took a look at my window weepholes today. The two large front windows next to the driver and passenger's seats have four sets of weepholes. I say "sets" because each one has two openings. Does one cover fit over the two openings, or do I need two? All of the other windows have one large opening.

One cover will fit over both weep holes. They have very small arms that go into the slots and put pressure on the cover. I put Liquid Nails Clear Seal on mine and they haven't moved since.

I'm sure you will realize this, but the open end goes to the rear. I have four covers per side on my Adventurer 38Q.
