Squeaky kitchen floor

My RV is 4 years old now and I have a Georgetown 378. I have a section of the kitchen floor that squeaks pretty bad. The rest of the flooring is ok. Has anyone had this problem? If so, how did you fix it? My RV tech just told me that it would be hard on our RV because he would have to come in from the bottom and tear out the compartment underneath. Expensive repair. I'm hoping for an easy repair. Thanks.

Anyone know how to reach Forest River Customer Service? I want to speak with Mike Burns but can't remember his phone number or e-mail address.

Mike Burns does not work at Forest River anymore. Search the forum for John Armstrong. He handles the Georgetown warranty/service issues.

I have a 2008 Georgetown 340TS. I had a very squeaky kitchen floor. I was recommended a repair technique by FR that I was very leary of doing but it worked.

I was replacing the vinyl flooring with vinyl hardwood strips anyway so I gave it a shot. I removed the vinyl (removing it anyway). I took a 2 inch hole saw and drilled 3 holes in the general area where it squeaked. If you hit steel when you drill, don't worry, just move to the side about 2 inches and drill again. Save the wooden circle that you cut out.

Once the hole was cut, I cleaned out some of the styrofoam insulation from the holes (as much as I could reach with a small screw driver). Try to get as much styrofoam removed near the squeak area as possible. I then filled the holes and as much of the open space with high quality insulation foam. Use a genorous amount of the foam. Don't walk on it until the next day. Although it sounds like the squeaking in a house floor, what you are really hearing is the wood floor rubbing against the metal joists. The foam will fill the area between the metal joists and the wooden floor.

The next day, I was shocked. It worked. It really worked. It has been about a year now and there is still no squeaks at all. I hope this helps.
