2017 FR3 Engine Grill Rattle

My FR3 developed a loud rattle in the front of the vehicle at highway speeds. After a little research, I found the black engine grille was vibrating against the Motorhome fiberglass frame. Picked up some self-adhesive rubber insulation from Napa which seems to have solved the noise. I don’t know if there was supposed to be such a rubber insulation there from the factory or not. See attached pictures.

I just cut a piece of garden hose and slipped it over the locking arm. Problem solved!
