how to reduce wind noise

We just made our first road trip in our new 2018 forest River MBS 2401ws RV.
We thought there was a lot of wind noise when driving on the highway.
Anyone have any suggestions on quieting down the inside cabin?

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. It may help if you let folks know the area the wind noise is coming from so they can offer suggestions

Wind noise. We have not been able to locate one area. If I could determine a specific area I could probably figure something out.
Itís just loud when it get up to highway speed.
I was hoping other people had found ideas on reducing interior road - wind noise.

A lot of different noises get called "wind noise".

Tire noise on different pavements? Drive train noise?
To me wind noise comes from poorly sealed doors, Windows, and vents, all of which exist in abundance on a lot of RV's.

Can come from poorly adjusted locks on storage compartments that can be somewhat open to the inside. Could also be just noise resonating through the large wall panels that may not have any noise dampening material in them other than basic insulation.
Other than having someone with a good ear just walking around and listening for where the noises are loudest, not much to offer.

The best thing we did was remove the trim for the overhead (class C) and tighten/add screws where the metal vehicle roof meets the over cab bunk. Before we tightened things up we could see light between the mating surfaces.BIG improvement!

Iíd love to hear the wind noise opposed to the kids favorite question. Are we there yet?
I bought them maps to track mileage signs on the road. Lasted about 10 miles.....
I thought it was a great idea but I guess not.
