Whistling Windshield

My 2017 class A is starting to have whistling sounds that seem to be coming from around the windshield. It's worse when there is a crosswind. I am wondering if the rubber gasket around the windshield is not sealing as it should.

Has anyone else experienced this?

In all thor rigs we owned, we have had some singing from windshield in good winds.

In 24ft Vegas, on 3rd windshield replacement, had them silicone the heck out of it, slowed it down but never went away completely.

This may sound crazy, but on my Hurricane when the singing starts I stop at the next rest area and clean and lube the slide tracks on the side windows. I brush out the 'fur' tracks and spray in some silicone spray. I also spray the rubber strip between the panes of glass. It always helps and most of the time stops the singing.

Thanks for the tips.
