Take piece of felt run it down outside latch side of door, the entire latch side of screen. Then adjust latch with piece of felt also. It will look good and seal also.

I like this idea.

I also discovered more noise makers.
the plexiglass that is in the middle of the screen door was not cut long enough so that the end by the hinge side is not inserted into the door frame. It moves and rattles.

The plastic sliding plastic door handle/latch cover also has some movement that can also make noise. I slid some heavy paper into the slots to stop the movement. If that cuts back on noise then I will find something more suitable, water proof and permanent.

My door window seems to be tight.

My hinges do not touch the door when it is shut.

nice quiet rode now

The last three rides we had were very quiet, most noise is abated.

We inserted some foam into the door way on the bottom step so it pushed against the step and the white screen door panel. The result was that ALL door noise was eliminated.

Some time ago based on other posts I inserted some gap filler foam tubing in the spaces between the shower door panels and also along the bottom of the door in the gap between the glass and the frame. Much quieter now.

The foam I used was from the side panel of a Select Comfort air bed. Prior to that we wedged a large cushion into the space and that worked but not as well because it was not as stiff.

I was thinking of using pool noodles but none are available locally at this time.

Try it,

Bobby

The better half laid a bead of silicon RTV all around the door panels and window, inside and out. This cut out virtually all noise from the door.

Now for the crashing sound from the back...

Sounds like another good idea.

I had some coat hangers in the closet that were making a racket when under way. No coats or clothing were on them. Now they sit quietly on the bed tucked in under the bedspread.

I called Forest River and the service guy admits this is a problem and their fix is the black foam they put around the bottom of the door. Sit on the steps and see if you see daylight if so probably need to re-caulk helps but certainly does not get rid of all the noise
