Were you on rough roads? You shouldn't hear much of anything in the outside compartments. My 3120 rides quiet except for larger bumps when the range tray rattles sometimes. I also changed from Michelin to BFGoodrich tires when the Michelins were recalled which seem to ride a little better.

If you are on bad roads with lots of expansion joins, you are out of luck.

On good / reasonable roads I hear no squeaks, rattles, or ignoring noises.
I do nothing special excepted don't store anything that can rattle on or in the stove.

Some of our pull down shades made rattle noises and the pillar passenger side had a squeak. Add poorly packed kitchen and Whoa it was a racket
Dealer installed noise reducing isolation tabs on the shades and shimmed the pillar
Wife repacked the kitchen using the rubber sheets (cut in various sized pieces) the kind that prevent carpet from slipping and now we have a quiet ride
It's all about driving around (in a safe environment) with a helper moving around the coach (service manager volunteered) and isolating the individual noises
Take em one at a time
Good luck
