Just out of curiosity- is there a product out there for a wind deflector on the side of the MH? We have a real bad whistling/cricket sound coming from the outside and the DW says it sounds like its from the awning bracket. Is it possible the wind is going through the little openings of this bracket and making this noise? Just curious.

Could be the bracket. Try putting some duct or masking tape over area to change air flow. Take MH for a ride and see if it stops noise.

If your windows have small horizontal slits at the bottom for drainage try placing a piec of tape over them that extends a tiny bit past the opening. Don't press the tape into the hole to plug the hole. Water can still escape but the wind noise on my mh is gone. Mine actually came with some plastic inserts that did not stop the noise. The black tape or clear packing tape will allow the frame color to show. Replacement about every 6-12 months is necessary.

I also ran some 3M plastic tape that is about 1.5 inches wide down the hinge area of the entry door. This too helped.

Air Tab's. Noticed these on Moderator Westronic's profile. I have no experience with them, I'm assuming he does. Ask??
