TT squeaks when we walk around inside

I searched the boards trying to find an answer to this problem but did not find anything. When we are parked at a campsite and walk around inside the TT, every step or movement causes the TT to make a squeaking sound and it's driving me nuts! I know there must be springs under the TT to spray with WD 40 or some other lubricant, just not sure where or if that's an option Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!

Squeaking in Houston

The squeaking noise could very well be from the camper's suspension. When we set-up, I use tire locking chocks, SteadyFast stabilizers and a jackstand on each side of the camper near the axles and that pretty much eliminates movement and noise.

Dave & Monica,

Wanted to let you know that adding chocks between the tires made the squeaking stop! Thanks for replying to my question. We are camping at Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville, Texas this week and we much happier campers without the squeaks.

Thanks, again!

Paul & Vicki

I hope to see you at the Texas FROG Rally at the Buckhorn Lake Resort in October?
How is the resort? This will be our first visit there.

WHJ, we will be at the rally in October. In fact, I am helping Lori Stenholm host this first ever FROG rally event in Texas. We went from 25 rigs to 65 rigs in a matter of a of 2 or 3 days and have a waiting list of other people that want to attend.

This was our first trip to Buckhorn Lake Resort and we really like.

See you in October!

Going FROG wild in TEXAS!
