Seneca Cab Noise at Highway Speeds

Have any of the other Seneca owners experienced a loud wind noise in the cab of their coaches? It is very loud and prevents you from having a normal conversation in the cab with out yelling at highway speeds.

Thanks

Ted

I'm not experiencing any noise that would prevent normal conversation. Seneca owners had reported whistling noise from screw hole at top of mirror mount. I plugged that hole early on so no noise.

Thanks Walt. I will plug the hole and see if that helps.

The cab of ours isn't quiet by any stretch, but it's not loud enough to prevent normal conversation. I agree with Walt on the mirror whistling - a couple pieces of electrical tape took care of that.

Loud like most diesel trucks but not enough that we can't carry on a normal volume conversation.

Its a truck! With a big diesel engine, screaming down the road right on the other side of the windshield. Are you maybe expecting too much?

We had a distinguishable banging noise that was fixed upon delivery by installing a Velcro strip on the kick panel below the driver's door. Just not enough attachment points to a large fiberglass panel. The guys in the shop knew exactly what it was and said they upgrade on almost every one the prep.

The weather isn't hot enough now but the cooling fans really make a whine that meets your characterization of the noise level. Look at the engine temp gauge. If it gets to over 200 degrees it will kick on. A bad thermostat could cause that problem in moderate temps.

I haven't heard that sound in mine since last summer.

On our 2012 Seneca both cab doors had to be adjusted as you could almost put your hand past the door seal at the top of each door. After the adjustment we could talk to each other without raising our voices and added velcro to the chassis battery access panel below the driver's door as it was flapping going down the road.

Our 2014 Seneca makes a loud whistle/whine noise only when throttled with 1,400-2,200 rpm. Above that or when letting off the accelator cab is relatively quiet. Assuming it is the turbo and is normal being a diesel.
