Well that sounds like more than drafty, that sounds like big air leaks. You can check out Bob Nodine's thread on what he did to his Class C which may or may not apply to your issue. You many have more and bigger problems. Might want to do a poor mans smoke test.

Close the windshield curtains at night and turn on all the lights in the RV. Walk around outside and look for light leaks where they are not supposed to be. It's not thorough, it won't find window leaks, but it's a place to start.

Does your cab heater blow hot or cool? If cool make sure the circulation valve on top of the engine is open. During the summer you might want to close that valve to stop hot coolant from circulating through the heater core. My rig came from the factory with the valve closed.

It blows hot and cold as it should just the coach it self is drafty so far we have found three seals that are split and falling apart. witch I thought kinda odd for a brand new motorcoach. we aare waiting to here from dealership as to weather they will adress these issues or not so far we cant get the service writer to return any phone calls....

If the seals are something within your skill level, contact Thor and ask them to send you the parts. That’s what we did for split and missing seals on our Challenger. It did take 2 attempts to get the correct bulb seal but they sent the correct one on the second attempt.
