Squeaks and Rattles

I have a 14' 24S and have driven it for 7,500 miles in the one year of ownership. I was tired of all the rattles ans squeaks when driving down the road, so I starting looking for the problems. Here are my observations.

Rattle Cause: Pantry baskets hitting each other.
Solution: Zip tie them together. rattle gone

Squeaks Cause: Microwave/Convection Oven Combo.
Solution: Install additional plywood below the microwave so that it sits on plywood. See attached pics. Existing plywood is not thick enough to support the rear of the oven. It was installed crooked with only 2 screws and support under 3 out of 4 sides (see 1st photo). The trim plates were being used to support the rear of the oven which allowed for it to shake and vibrate. I cut the Existing plywood so that it would rest securely and square. I then installed an additional layer on top of the existing. all in all, it took me about 20 minutes to repair. With the additional layer of plywood (3/8"), the oven now sits firmly on a secure base. squeaks gone.

The window above the driver squeaks occasionally and is due to the glass being too thin. I haven't repaired it yet, but there are topics on this forum that already cover how to fix it.
