Wind noise

We have a 2015 Sightseer 33C with serious wind noise from the drivers window. Iíve checked all the rubber seals and they look good but there are some opening along the outside bottom of the window assembly that are covered with plastic pieces. A few of the covers are missing. Could that cause significant wind noise? Other possible causes? Thanks

Yup. Those are weep hole covers covering, uh, weep holes. The weep holes are slots that drain rain in the outside window tracks and condensation from the inside tracks outside so that the water doesn't cause problems inside.


Good luck finding replacements. I finally covered our weep holes with black electrical tape with a bump in the middle to allow drainage.


Don't just tape them off, water's gotta drain, somehow...

Got "some" info for the 2014 but not able to get this part for the 2015, perhaps that a call to Winnebago to verify this is the correct part for your year?
Note that there are two different numbers depending on the build date for your specific RV.
Hope it at least gives a place to start!

Thank you

Thank you so much for your replies. Just to confirm, are these missing covers a likely cause of significant wind noise? Thanks so much!

Even one missing cover sounds like a partially open window.

Buy new covers. They come in drivers side and passengers side. So be sure to get the ones you need.

You can cover the weep holes temporarily with shipping tape until you get the covers. But they need to not be blocked indefinitely.

Point might be to be aware that there seems to be a different number for the newer versus the older model even in the 2014 I listed so checking to see how that may change for your year and serial number may save some grief on ordering if it is not possible to go by a dealer and actually see it fit.
As easy as they are to lose, I'm guessing dealers may know what's up right away without doing the part numberlooking. I'm missing several myself.
