Driver's cab upgrades

Has anyone added carpet and sound deadening to the driver's cab I've got a 22 Seneca 37k and I really want to sound deaden the doors and add carpet to the cab also does anybody have ideas to stop the large mirrors from shaking so much

Luckily my 2014 came from Jayco with a carpeted cab. I think they went away in 2018.5 with the S2RV chassis.

In regards to your mirror question, our mirrors are made by Lang Mekra and they do (or did) offer a reinforcing arm that attaches to the upper bar and then bolts to the top of the door frame. So it requires the drilling of the top of the door and the installation of two rivnuts and then it clamps to the upper bracket. But you do lose the ability of the mirrors to "fold in" if they hit something.

The reinforcing bar is Lang Mekra 614100006. It fits either the right or left. I will attach a link to the manual for our mirrors, it might help you understand what these are.

I pulled my carpets up on my 18 ts and put down foam rubber mats down then reset the carpeting. Keeps cab quieter and cooler. I also added sound reading mats to doors. Again reduces sound but really doesn’t do anything for temp.

I also added carpet to my cab. Pulled the driver and passenger seat completely out pulled up all the trim around the doors, laid and cut the carpet and put everything back. Came out pretty good. Do believe it helps a little bit with the temperature and sound. I have pictures of the process on our Instagram account.

This is an old Hot Rod builders trick that works great for heat and sound control. Go to the “ Home Depot “ web site and search “ E/o self-stick foam/foil insulation “ . I have a 1984 gmc 1/2 ton 4x4 with the factory style full rubber mat. The difference this product made inside my truck cab was like night and day. It’s a cut and peel product that you can form to contours of your floor. I also put it inside my doors up against the door skin. I have had this stuff in my truck about 5 years with absolutely no problem’s. They make products exactly for this purpose ( Summit Racing , Jeg’s performance parts ) but it about 3 times as expensive. Hope this helps.

I recently used Kilmat (amazon) sound deadening on my Wrangler and it made a big difference. It is a bit of a pain to put down as you have to use a roller over it to press it down. I found a heat gun on low really helped. The difference between this and the stuff HD and Lowe's sell is that it does not smell. It reduced the heat coming off the floorboards as well.

I originally wanted to put carpet it, but worry about how much oil and junk would get into it. I just placed the weathertec mats over the rubber flooring and am satisfied with that. To really reduce the noise, you would need to pull the dash and run the material up there as well. The noise/heat has not bothered me enough yet to take on the project.

Thank y'all I really want to put carpet in I've got an upholstery friend that would do it pretty cheap but I definitely think the Heat control is a major thing too one more question what did anyone do to stop the wind noise coming off the mirrors on the driver's cab my wife says she can't hear it on the other side but I definitely do on my side

I have plugged the mirror mount holes with plastic caps or in a couple of locations covered with Gorilla tape. reduced the whistle noise on my 2018 HJ to nothing. Good luck!
