The 351 & 364 Squeaks & Creaks remediation thread

I just came back from an 8 hour round trip with my new 364. I understand the shake, rattle, and roll but what really sets me on edge are the creaks and squeaks.

I am starting this thread with the unrealistic hope that we can catalog squeaks and the fix. I included the 351 because it is essentially the same floor plan with one less bathroom.

Source: Passengers side window
Sound: Constant creaking
Test: Tried with window open or closed, no difference.
Solution: None found

If anyone can help, please jump in with solutions!

Oh man... I do not look forward to this. Squeaks and creaks in my car drive me crazy and I'm sure it's going to be worse in the MH. My wife says I'm just going to have to learn to lighten up and ignore them. Ugh.

My wife says I never learn, hence this thread.

Seriously, I'm ok with the squeeks and rattles when I hit bad roads but constant squeeking on good roads is very stressful.

I can live with most squeaks however the one coming from our Furrion microwave/convection oven is awful. I want to stab my eardrums it is so bad. The problem is the noise is high pitched, loud, and constant regardless of road condition.

If anyone has any tips to reduce this squeak I would be so thankful!

One of the few benefits of old age is that at 74 I don't hear the squeaks or creeks. Also can't hear the wife complain haha.

My infuriating squeek also sounds like it's coming from the passenger window as well--also on rather smooth roads. Maybe it's the microwave, but not sure. It sounds like a mouse stuck in a sticky trap. My wife's hearing isn't as good as mine so it's mostly my problem. I also have the overhead bunk--maybe it's in there somewhere. Maybe I should get a cat.

If you can find the squeaky area there is a spray Teflon that does well on plastic and rubber. It is a dry powder in a spray can. I used it years ago in automotive applications. So depending on what and where find an issue, it might help.

Did you get an alignment? After I got an alignment, most noise went away.

FR will reimburse if within 90 days of purchase.

Yes and it even tracks straight since I drove with the tanks full and the tires wore in.
