Isata 3 wind noise when parked and slide out

In our 2019 Isata 3 when parked and slide is out when wind blows we hear a humming or vibration noise.
The slide is fully and properly extended with no breaches in the seals
Any body experience same?
The noise does appear to emanate from the slide out area

With ours we heard a similar noise I suspect and it turned out to be the wind and the slide topper tunnel that created the issue.

Not really. Depended on wind direction. Once I had placed a beach ball between the slide and topper and that helped

In really heavy wind it can get very loud. I have tried numerous things like a strap tied over the slide topper length ways pulled tight. Didn't help much. I also did the ball at each end trick and that seemed to help the most so I still carry them with me. About 8" diameter bought at dollar store and can be inflated to size needed.

It really sounds (pun optional ) like an orientation issue. If you could change your parking angle related to the wind some you would reduce or end the wind noise. Good luck and lets us know if this helps.
