My rattle update:

I tried the bungee cord suggestion but noticed the towel bar was moving so I abandoned that method before it came out of the wall.

I couldn't find pool noodles as someone suggested to help with rattles. so I used some pipe insulation foam tubes. Not as stiff as pool noodles but it did help a lot. I ran the pipe insulation horizontally across the shower door just under the top frame and above the lower frame. amazing difference.

However they do fall off after awhile so i will try to secure them with some sort of clamp.

I am also thinking about using some leftover trim wood which is stiffer than the pipe foam. and I can probably cut some notches in the ends to help secure them to the glass frame.

I always have problems with the Tequila bottles rattling as we leave on trips above the door,but it takes care of it self on the way home. Things have a way of working itself out

The latch does not hold it tight against the shower frame which may be the source of the noise as the door hits the frame. The three partitions may also be banging against each other.

Has anyone come up with a solution for this?

I am about two weeks into my 30 day full warrenty and if there is something the dealer can do that would be good.

Thanks,

Bobby
Maybe something like this could be made and installed? This was on a previous MH of ours.

The dinette table squeaks horribly on ours between the table top and the little stop piece of wood mounted on the wall. Going to put a strip of rubber on the bottom of that wood!

I don't know if any of this will be helpful, but these are some of the things we did to eliminate rattles and squeaks when going down the road. Our TV was the biggest source of irritation. The metal bracket was producing a horrible high pitched squeak as it rubbed against itself. The photos show our remedy. Also the shower doors rattled, so we stuff two small towels in between the doors and track. The drawers under the theatre seats didn't rattle, but they always came open whether they were empty or had items in them. We secure them with the same elastic bicycle rack straps that we use to hold the TV in place.

A trick I learned from my old boating daze was to slip the bottles in an old (clean) sock. Stops the rattle, helps stop breakage from rattling together, and helps keep it cold if it comes out of the fridge!

My solution was to attach a thin piece of rubber at the two points where the door touches the screen door. I used double sided adhesive tape. the previous owner had a strip of rubber glued to the spot where the door mechanism hits. I replaced that with some door way insulation left over from sealing up my house.

The dealer realigned the shower door so it closes without a gap. And I put some round foam insulation along the bottom channel to eliminate some noise from the door.

Thanks guys,

Bobby

So the door started to rattle again. I am waiting for some warmer weather to address the issue.

I had some adhesive backed insulating foam on the screen door latch where it touches the main door. That worked for awhile but must have become compressed. It was also a little too thick and sometime the door was fully shut and would come open while moving.

I may try electrical tape or duct tape next.

I also noticed there is some play in the latch mechanism. If can develop a solution to eliminate that play I feel the rattles will be minimized or gone. All the screws are tight, I check them occasionally .
