I also had the mudflap noise & I have since corrected it.

I now how developed a loud intermittent noise which while driving seems be coming from the passenger side mirror area.

Anyone have this?

I looked at the door and I don't think that's it.

Yikes!!! Your DW doesn't drive the coach?? Yesterday I was sitting here and a 40' Monaco came in next to me. The husband pulled up, got out of the coach and watched at the DW backed it into the space. Perfectly, I might add.

Boowho??

No she said she wants to but I'm the one that is not comfortable with it. We will see. Back to the rattle issue. It's not the mud flap or the awning arm. I don't think it's the door. The stair cover if a possibility I will work on that. Their are lots of noises that come and go with how the MH is packed but this is consistent and annoying as all get out.

Possible Answer to Starwell Rattle

Obviously to protect the mechanical step. But it seems to be very firm in place. So my search continues. Hope somebody has had this problem and figured it out. Thanks for the help.
Experienced the same with our new Berkshire 390 RB and quickly determined it to be the wooden pull-out desktop at the passengers position, which rattles back and forth when in the stowed position. Funny, how when you know the cause it's not nearly so aggravating. I'll eventually get around to putting some Velco fuzz to stop the wood-on-wood banging, or maybe just both Velcro parts to keep it in place.

And there hain't no way possible to stop it either! After 52+ yrs, you just tune it out.

Lol. Ive got one out of the house already. The next one goes into the air force this summer. That leaves 3 left. Wait! just found out the other day theres another one on its way. This will make 6 total. At this rate ill never get rid of the noise. The grand kids shouldnt be to far behind either. I can hear my dad laughing from here. He calls it the ultimate payback.

I found the rattle. It has the mud flap after all. I was looking under the MH because the front jacks made a lot of noise coming up and saw 4 bolts one was lose and it was a washer that was spinning and vibrating. Tighten it up and piece and quiet. So happy.
