Suction cup, hot glue gun or velcro... probably both.


Mine came loose almost immediately in my 2015 30DS. Found it to be useless at any rate. Taped it entirely and broke it out in one taped up piece. Stained the lumber underneath (bottom of overhead bunk) to match the rest of the trim. More room to hang pictures of my grandchildren.

There was a gob of dried up black adhesive at each corner of the mirror. Only stuck to mirror .

Any thoughts or ideas for the screen door? Mine constantly rattles at speeds above 35mph.

The only thing that comes to my mind is trying the weather stripping for a house door... only use the stuff that has adhesive on one side to stick to the inside door frame.

Add some little stick on felt furniture feet to any area that is loose when the doors are closed.

Ptrei, saw you post from Sept, you may not get this but it may help someone. There is a metal plate at bottom of door, width of door and about 6"? high, right above the door sweep. Close the door and lightly tap the door and you may hear a rattle down there. I put additional screws in perimeter and problem solved.

The wind comes in from the heater.
The Windowes air movement is because the foam around the dash doesnt extend to the window. Also there might be a larger hole were the defrost vent is cut into the dash. The front doors rattle until you weatherstrip them and the mesh rattles until its secured. Most of the wind noise comes through the heater

That's what I used on my screen door. It's starting to buzz again, as the weatherstripping has gotten compressed. Time to add more!
