Weep Hole Covers

My 2020 FR3 came with no weep hole covers. It needs 18 of them. I contacted FR3 customer service and was told that regretfully the motor home doesnít come standard with these. He said to call the dealer and they could order them. I find this to be absolutely ridiculous that a few pieces of plastic are not included on a $100K motor home! What kind of customer service is this anyway?

You could make an argument that perhaps they should be standard equipment - not really sure it they are on other models or not. But you really can't blame customer service. If they are not standard equipment then why would they supply them. That would open the door to people asking for all kinds of things.

With that in mind you're really not going to like it when you call to order. I recently purchased some for the front windows and they are over $6 each.

Geez, at that price, it's starting to be worth buying a 3D printer. For 18, MM is at 50% of a cheap one from Staples!

Good point, but I would like to have seen a part number, or a source for the part besides telling me to call the dealer and sorry have a nice day.

Your rv windows have slots in the bottom of the frame to let condensation out. The cover letís the moisture out but prevents rain from coming in.

And here all this time I thought folks used them so the weep holes wouldn't whistle while going down the road......

They do have that added benefit as well.

Got it. Don't think I've ever seen any, though.

I installed these on my 2017 FR3 30DS to fix a cockpit window noise of whistling while traveling. I purchased them from Pelland Enterprises. Part # H109-916 is the cover for Hehr windows. They are now $5.60 each. Never had a need to do all windows, just the front cockpit windows for eliminating wind noise. Their telephone # is 800-216-2786 or "www.rvwindow.com/"

Moved them to my new Georgetown GT5 this year, but had to file the tabs a little thinner to fit a little different window.

Thanks GT. I ordered those exact parts but they were much too large. If I filed them down there would be no tabs left so I returned them. They charge shipping and 30% restocking fee but at least I will get most of my money back.

Thumbs up

Being as cheap as I am, I know I didnít that much for the ones I got. I only needed 4, but they didnít fit, too big so I used my Dremel tool to enlarge the holes in the window frames. Worked for me, sorry I donít remember where I got them.

I ordered these for the front passenger window (qty 4), which was noisy. Had to pull out the dremel to sand them down just a tiny bit. Quick pass and they fit perfect. I sanded the trim pieces and didn't enlarge the window slots. Time will tell if they fall out because I might have shaved off too much. Was expecting a perfect fit, but not a big deal. I less noise in the RV; so many more to squash.
