Has anyone found a solution for 2014-2017 screen door rattling

I thought that my rattles was coming from the stove cover, however, after my last trip this weekend, I determined it was the screen door that was rattling...

I know that THOR changed the door/screen door in 2018, so was hoping that someone with a 2014-2017 model had solved the rattling screen door while driving syndrome....

Any input would be appreciated!

Felt pads with "sticky-backs" at the big box stores that are designed for chair legs...get a pack of mixed sizes. Tap along the door while sitting still...kill em one at a time.

Yup! sticky foam pads are the best "rattle-killer" known to Man!
Good luck with finding all of them!

I hate rattles! Sticky foam pads work great, I've used the soft part of velcro for the same purpose.

We keep a cloth drying mat under the stovetop cover. That takes care of that one. Fortunately, the Vegas has enough road and engine noise that I don't hear most of the rattles, especially if there is music playing.

2017 ACE...we just lock the door. The lock holds it tight enough that it doesn’t rattle. Have you tried that?

If you're talking about the bottom square blank of the screen door open and lightly touch with fingers it will rattle like crazy. I put a seam of black silicone on the inside frame. Stopped immediately. Also seal the door window while you're at it , before IT falls out!

We did all of the above on our 17 ACE and still had a rattle. It was the door handle.

We have put some self adhesive felt on the bottom, middle and top of the door. It passes the "push" tests. Now for an actual road test

Just wanted to post a follow-up...

Used adhesive felt strips on the screen door, couldn't believe how quiet the ride was...

Can't believe it took me three years to fix this!
