Rattling windows in ACE 2012

Has anyone had both the drivers and passengers front sliding windows rattle while driving down the road?.
At first I thought is was the screen so I removed them, no luck there.
If so how did you fix it.

The winder it is the worse it becomes, I'm almost afraid they will shatter at some point on top of just flat out being annoying.
I know when the wife has had enough, the Kleenex comes out and she starts stuffing the window to reduce the vibration.

Thanks for any and all advice

Windows

Sounds like rubber guides have shrunk. Either replace guides or use pieces of rubber as shims.

Window Flocking

We purchased window flocking from Amazon because the windows were rattling enough we actually thought they may fall out of the channel, never mind the noise while driving. However, the channel is a bit too deep for the flocking and the windows do not sit well in the channel and still rattle somewhat.
Has anyone replaced the flocking in their motorhome? With what? And, how did you do this?

Hi, my ACE has a rattle on Driver's side only with cross winds while at highway speed. Pushing on the inner slider glass stops it and to be honest it hasn't been annoying enough for me "yet" to do anything about it. I have read though that some folks use 3/8" foam backer rod and stuff it in the appropriate glass channel(s) to silence the beast. You can get it at most any Lowes etc. Not sure of that will work on ACE's, but it's cheap and easy to try.

So, here's our latest attempt at a remedy: Today we pulled out the recently installed flocking, attached 3/16 inch Sponge Window Seal Air-Sealing Tape to the underside of the flocking, and reinstalled it. This should snug up the window in the channel. The real test will come when next we take it on the road. Our's, as well, is a 2013 ACE 30.1, and while both the driver's and passenger's windows rattle, the driver's side window is the worst.
