Sunseeker 2420MSF - new owner issues

We recently bought a 2018 2420MSF. There seems to be a lot of noise from the cabin door while driving. Also, Toilet door seems too loose. Anyone else experience this? In fact, would like to hear from any other 2420MSF owners -

Our coach door is quiet, the counter extension was the culprit in our coach.A very strong magnet cured that . Good luck !

Thanks, Geeman53. Although, since you have the 2250slec vs my 2420msf, Im not sure they would have the same issues??

I lithium greased all the door hinges and the majority of the door noise has disappeared on our 2420MSF. I am intrigued by the magnet idea though. Please explain more about what you did.

We really like our coach, especially the floorplanin the way the shower/vanity/wardrobe is separated from the toilet.

So far so good, just a few warranty items being addressed now in preparation for next year's travels.

We have a counter extension near the coach entrance with two noisy springs that made traveling on very bumpy roads a pain . One strong,small industrial magnet locks down the extension ,hence no movement and quiet. If you have a stove burner cover , that is also a noise maker. A kitchen towel between the cover and the burners stopped that noise . A quiet coach is wonderful !

Magnet fix was by geeman. Thank you for your reply. Dealer is still working on our door. I presume you have an awning on your rig? Is it possible there is some aero-dynamic interaction with the door and the way the awning is situated - that it would 'pull' the door out under speed?

Hello, I am curious about an update on your door issue? Was the dealer able to fix it? What did they do for it?
Thanks

speaking of noise

I have noticed that a lot of noise when driving comes from the exhaust fan when the wind hits it. Any ideas on this?

Which fan? I usually keep the fans closed when driving. Even closed the bathroom exhaust fan still can be noisy...

Gotcha...and BTDT! That's a very noisy little fan and vent. Make sure you close and lock both sides of the exterior door prior to driving. Only locking one side of the vent door is worse than locking neither as it creates a really loud racket...

Are you talking about locking the two locks on the exterior door before starting out? We don't do this now.

Yeah, there is something very noisy up inside there. Very hard to figure out and watch out underneath on the stove side, there are metal tabs that will slice your scalp.

We have had occasional problems with the bathroom door being a little loose. It seems to come and go. Just take a wash cloth and close it in the door before getting underway. That will make the latch nice and tight.

No, there are two push tabs locks on the plastic exterior fan shroud door, for the stove fan, to close it. If you don't close those tabs the door can open and the breeze will come whistling in thru the fan....

The exterior fan door is just to the left of your kitchen window, when viewed from outside, near the top edge of the kitchen window. The plastic flipper door under the hood the is what you need to close and lock. It can be a real pain to reach if you aren't a NBA player... I use a step stool to open and close ours.
