New Rockwood Windjammer Owner.

Hi All,
It's funny to be on the posting end of a board instead of the hosting end, but here I am. I am on my 6th Travel Trailer over now 13 years of camping. We currently have a Rockwood Windjammer 3065SW, and after one outing, we're overall very happy with it.

I do have one big question, and after searching for it, I haven't seen a full answer...What makes it whistle? I figure it doesn't know the words, so it kind of whistles along with the song...but...it doesn't change pitch, no matter what the speed, and doesn't really vary in intensity either. It's noticable from the TV...but has anyone figured it out?

At this point we're in process of working out some bugs that we have with it, fridge wouldn't light, sofa side window cover pulled loose, the vent problem that we're all having, everything I consider reasonably normal for RV's - except that whistle. Any thoughts?

Thanks!
Ct..

What is whistling? The radio, the tires, the exhaust, the toilet, what? "Whistles along with the song because it doesn't know the words", could be the cat, dog, grandchild, wife, propane regulator, oops not that, doesn't change with speeds. A;so doesn't hace volume control,
now what could it be? Also what year model is your Rockwood, and are you the first owner?

You guys are quick! The vent problem being the A/C vents in the ceiling. The whistling starts at about 25 MPH, and continues irregardless of the speed of the vehicle. Again, no chang in pitch or volume irregardless of speed. The trailer is a 2011, and we are the first owners.

I dont' have my first service appt for a week, so I'm identifying and fixing what I can before hand.

Ct..

They close upon use. With the AC on, or vent blowing, they will close and have to be repeatedly opened.

Chris,
This seems to be a common problem with the AC ceiling vents.
One thing to do is open the large vents at the ceiling AC unit. You should have 3 slides that will open and let cool air in. This is what I had to do until the issue is address with the dealer and Forest River.

Here is a picture how I keep my vents open until they are replaced.

Another post about this and they removed each individual vent, put a small "O" ring on one of the mounting tabs, and reinstalled. Vents are now tight and won't move on their on. Seems like a simple/cheap fix. Also seem like there was a recall to replace those, or they would be replaced if the owner complained.

listened on the way up and no whistling, did check at speeds from 0 to 55. after that all
I heard was Jimmy Buffett, it was just me and the dogs, my wife came up after work. We are at Cade Lake in Sturgis, Mi. then off to the Indiana Dunes on Saturday to meet the gang we camp with.
