RE: Wind Noise

Well, I did the testing with the tape and the noise is clearly being produced by wind passing by the side of the windshield and the frame. Taping up that seam helped immensely. The sad thing is it seems to be a terrible design flaw. I'll need to check with Winnebago and some windshield installers to see if there is a more permanent fix because I don't really want to drive around with masking tape on my windshield forever. Thanks all for the recommendations!

RE: Wind Noise

Thanks for the suggestions. I've looked into the weep hole covers. We are missing one, but I don't think that is where the sound is coming from. It seems more like it is around the sides of the windshield. I think I might try the painters tape along the edge, but it could also be mirrors. I might see if those can be adjusted at all. It just seems ridiculous that they would expect you to have to yell at each other to talk in the front seats. The model is a 2016, so I don't think it is a rust issue.

Wind Noise

I'm still relatively new to the Class A scene. After about 4,000 miles on the road, I'm starting to wonder if the crazy loud wind noise around the windshield is normal. It is really loud on both sides of the windshield, so much so that my wife and I nearly have to yell to talk to each other. On our most recent trip, the sound was nearly completely eliminated when we had a strong tail wind, which made me think maybe we can get rid of it all the time. I just thought it was normal for a class A. We are driving a Winnebago SunstarLX 35B. Any recommendations on what we can do would be very welcome. Thanks!

RE: Inverter and Solar Basics

Thanks for the tips. I thought I had included my info in my signature. I guess not. Hopefully this works now. I bought it used, so I don't really know how many watts of solar I have. There are two panels and two batteries under the steps, I believe.

Inverter and Solar Basics

My newish motorhome has an inverter and solar panels. I'm not exactly sure how they work. My understanding is that the solar panels automatically charge the batteries (Do I need to turn them on?) and the inverter makes it so I can run some of the outlets off of the power from the coach's engine. I'll be diving into the encyclopedia-like manuals this weekend to try to figure it out, but thought I'd ask here for a quick "dummies" guide to get me started. Thanks in advance!

Class A Wind Handling

We just upgraded our 27' class C to a 2016 35' class A Winnebago Sunstar LX. My biggest trepidation in the upgrade is how it will handle in the wind. I have read several things about gas class A coaches being much better than they used to be, and some have said Winnebago is generally on the better end, but I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with this particular model or something similar. Am I going to be spending more time waiting out the wind storms, or will it be pretty reliable? Should I consider adding sway bars to the axles (I might be using the wrong terms here, but I have heard you can add some stability that way.) I'd love any other tips or input anyone might have.
