Hi - new to this forum - we have an Elldis 140 [our third MH from the Explorer Group] generally satisfied bit the road nose through the ventaliation hatch is appalling at 60+ mph. I have a temp solution - tape on the outside. has anybody else suffered and what did they do?
Sorry to hear about your problem, our 140 had similar problem with the habitation door. This proved to be a poor fitting door. We adjusted it and the noise has gone.
I suggest you look very carefully at the fitting (on the outside). If all seems correct, it might be worth considering buying a wind deflector. Fit this adjacent to the leading edge. We had one on a previously owned Bessacarr.
It could also be worth looking very carefully at the sealing around the joint while you are up there.
We are looking at doing a mod on the shower drain pipe on our 140, have you any experience on this?
As a former owner of an Autoquest 120, can I add a couple of things.
Most of the noise comes from the 2 vents in the footwell. What we did was to use a couple of plastic, zipped bags and fill them with unimportant items, like towels etc and drop them into the well while travelling. It made a huge difference. I believe the bags were originally the packaging for towels or blankets.
Another problem we had when the van was barely 2 years old was that the composite hinges for the hab door/flyscreen became a bit stiff. It was in fact only the bottom one. It gets dirt thrown up from the front wheel and starts to seize. I believe that the W5 Silicone spray (sold by Wilkos) is the right sort of stuff to keep it lubricated.
