Sorry Dennis I can't comment on your question regarding the door seal. Are all your air springs passing the leak test?


Air bags all check ok. Two were replaced last year from the blowout. I have a couple small leaks that will need fixing but this one is a biggie. I couldn't hear it due to my hearing loss but grab a youngster and tell em to listen here and tell me if you hear anything like a hiss and bingo! done. [emoticon] ....Dennis

That would worry me.


Yeah, duct tape won't cut it. [emoticon] I've already got a diesel place trying to find a replacement. Monaco no longer has them so I've got to find a good used one. Fortunately, Endeavor, Thunder, Executive, Signature and Dynasty used the same tanks......Dennis

I would find the air supply to the door seal and shut it off, to see if that is the major leak. If it is, I guess you'll have to try and find a new seal.

I can't speak to the leak itself but after reading the fixes from the Link provided, I thought to myself, that the fix I used for my "Sleep Number" mattress might work on your seal. The main ingredient is Gorilla Glue...works wonders.

On our coach the solenoid that controls the door seal is just to the left of the generator when you pull it out. It sits down fairly low and has an adjustable knob on it to set the air pressure. I had to replace the line on it one time.

So how bad is the wind noise if you terminated the line and ran with no seal?

You can use the bicycle tire repair kit. The patch is very thin.
