With that much wind noise I would be very suspicious that the windshield did not get "seated" correctly and the adhesive has failed.  I would have whom ever replaced your windshield pull it out and reinstall.   If they should deny your request I would go elsewhere and pay out of pocket, having that windshield installed correctly is extremely important from a safety perspective.

Everyone has made some very good points...I never had any issues with either of my PC's and the pump set up but I did back the sheet metal screws out and replaced them with small bolts and nuts.  I would be a little concerned about "hard piping" the unit in any fashion since there is a fair amount of movement back there and making anything on the RV rigid always has potential to cause problems.  The flange thru the fiberglass is the answer I do think.  Best of luck.   Ron G.

RheaRN...It would not be possible for the A pillar to move around at all since it is really a part of the roof structure.  I would have concerns about the integrity of the windshield if there is suspicion that it may have not sealed properly.   Todays windshields are very much and integral part of the vehicles integrity and has impact on the air bag operation, etc, I would not allow anyone to re caulk merely the outside if there is suspicion that the interior seal is not doing what it is suppose to...just my two cents.

Sure can see why it is jamming!  I was going to suggest some baby powder as that is about the best lubricant for the rubber seals to keep them soft, pliable and slippery but I am afraid your situation is beyond what baby powder can fix.  Will be interesting to see what Kermit has to say. Ron G.

ron & toni and others...For the record, Hancook tires are Korean made and do get very good quality scores.  While Michelin is a french company the majority of the tires for the N. American market are manufactured right here in US and that includes all 16" tires for motorhome application.   Thanks, Ron G.

My previous post (removed) was miss leading in that you do not have to enter your code within the first four can punch in as  many numbers as you like as long as your code (four numbers) in sequence is entered within your random punches the lock will open, so crooks would have no idea what your code really is if they were watching you.   Thanks, Ron G.

It will be interesting to hear what Kermit might have to say.  Despite what your observations might be I would still suspect the shower surround as the culprit....just a thought.

Oil and tires do always bring out the opinions!  I will leave tires for another day and concentrate on oil.   My rule is to go by the owners manual 100%, if the engine calls for 5-20 that is what I use for I do not have a PhD in chemistry and I am not about to question the recommendations of Ford engineers for their engines.  Today's engines   are way to complicated and nothing like engines of even 10 years ago.  It is always interesting that folks invest well over $100,000 in their coaches and then worry about $100 annually in oil changes, the oil is the life blood of the engine...change the oil frequently and use the best oil possible.  Our coaches sit a fair amount and that generates a lot of moisture and therefore i change the oil every 6 moths and never exceed 5000 miles.  To each his own but good oil and a quality filter is cheap insurance.

That one is a weird one for sure!  If you leave the heat/AC control in the "on"  position vs's turning it to the true "off" position there is a damper that stays open and could let one lot of air in especially if the wind was coming directly at the nose of the coach and perhaps following the windshield up to the TV area?  Ron D's. loose B cap is the only other way air could ever get up into that area and if that is the case I would want to get the cap and the roof screwed together ASAP before you hit a heavy rain.   best of luck.   Ron G.

Thanks Joseph!

Congrats on the purchase of your new coach Pax!  Our lives do change and we need to adapt to the changing times.   Enjoy those grand children and perhaps their memories of travel now will make them RV fans in the future.  What did you purchase?   Thanks, Ron G.

For safety sake (no class A pusher with nothing but fiberglass under and around you for me), ease of maintenance, and just pure driving enjoyment I chose the Renegade Verona 36VSB on the Freightliner M-2 106 chassis with a Cummins ISL9 engine.  Very nice coach.

Started with a 27' Class C with two small kids, lay out worked great, four trips across the country with no issues,  went to a 31' Class A with no slides, had Ford un-resolvable issues and sold coach (sued Ford and one!), went to a 36' double slide pusher that worked fine but had to many issues with coach and sold it.  Moved to a 38' pusher, to big, did not work for what we wanted to do at the time, went to a 24' Sprinter chassis, way to tight for us and did not like the Sprinter at all ( sorry Sprinter owners).   Moved to a PC 2551S and liked it but found it a little tight and missed the dinette set up, traded for a PC 3100S and loved the coach and never had a serious issue with it.  I will be retiring in Jan. and anticipate much more travel and therefore we wanted a little more room so settled on the 36'10" Super C with two slides and absolutely love the coach, never say never but current coach may be my last, my wife has strongly  said it will be my last!  As a previous poster stated as ones life changes so do your RV needs.    be safe, RAG

One can always count on PC forum members to jump right into the discussion with some candid opinions, that is why I like the forum so much!  No one has the crystal ball to see what the future holds and again I was not implying that a Feightliner chassis was the direct replacement for the E-450 in 100% of the the applications it is utilized for  but it certainly could be a replacement for the larger triple slide 29'-32 foot class C's that are really over weight before they are loaded with anything.  If I was to venture a guess I can see the 20'-23' coaches being built on the Sprinter, Transit and Ram chassis exclusively, the 23' and up could utilize the F series and Ram 5500  with the 29' plus coaches utilizing the  Feightliner SC-2RV.  Ford initially said they would stop production of the E-450 in 2020, they are now saying as long as the demand is there they will continue production, one does not know what the bottom line "demand" really is?  If we see another spike in fuel costs I am not sure how the V-10 is going to compete?  At 71 MPH (no toad) with my ISL-9 Cummins I consistently get 10.7 on flat road, the ISB will get that or better.  Just my two cents and that is probably all it is worth!   Thanks, Ron

I was not implying a 2350 would be dropped on the SC2RV but I can see a nice 34' triple slide sitting on top of it!  Expand your imagination a little!  Thanks, Ron G.
