Squeaky wheels ??

I am hearing a "rotating" or pulsing squeak but only when the windows are open and when we are near a wall or mountainside where the sound bounces back to me.
From the drivers seat it sounds like it is coming from the passenger side , perhaps one of the wheels.
I opened the hood when stationary and checked for belt/pulley noises.
I think I need to get myself a floor jack and stands and inspect the brakes.

Any suggestions or comments ? It is a 2005 AI. It has only 59k miles and original brake pads.

Cheers
Colin

I would suspect a faulty wheel bearing.

Could very well be a hubcap moving against the rim. If your motor home has them, try removing them, and driving it, and see if the noise goes away.

I was also thinking wheel bearing , although I've never actually heard what a faulty one sounds like.
I wonder how difficult they are to change?

I don't have hubcaps , the wheels are alloy. Wish it was that simple though

If it is a wheel bearing issue, you will want to find out right away. If a bearing seizes, you could lose a wheel. Not a good thing to happen at speed!! You could take your unit to a tire shop to have them check it out.
