Driver Side Window Noise

I have a 2012 Berkshire 36-FWS. The window next to the drivers seat rattles. When I reach about 40 mph and above, the window rattles at the point where they meet in the middle and where the window lock is located. As a temporary fix, I have cut a piece of weather stripping the length of that overlap joint, and wedged it between the two windows. It has corrected the problem, but everytime I need to open the window, the weather stripping comes out. Does anyone know of a permanent fix to this problem? Have others had the same issue? Thanks for any feedback.

If you will do a search on here, it has been covered. I don't have a motor home, but remember reading a couple of post about this. Might even find a fix.

OK, found it, there is a repair kit. Check this thread: Minor problems

Seems this one was fixed under warranty. About post #4 or 5 or so.

Thanks for the information Windrider. Looks like I will contact the dealer or Forest River directly to see if they can ship me the fix, or at least send it to the dealer for them to repair. Thanks again.

My local dealer replaced my noisy window under warranty. The new window glass is much thicker and prone to less vibration. It still rattles but nowhere near as bad as before.

Hawk My old drivers window was not fixable. It was the window with a large slide open on the bottom and nothing would make it quit rattling. They replaced the window and the new on has a smaller slide on the bottom and has no wind noise or rattle. It is the same manufacture but a redesign. I thought that had this fixed for the 12 but I think 62 in right lane had the same issue and his might be a 12 not sure. He checks in often so he can let you know. Call your dealer if you have the large slide on the bottom and the will know about it.

If I remember correctly you have a new MH. There is a known issue with the large slide windows on the Berkshire and they will replace the window for free. It it a much nicer window and is totally quiet and has no wind noise. The smaller window is still big enough to pay tolls or whatever.
If anyone wants a extra screen for the large window it's yours for the shipping.
