Loud squeaking

This is my first TT we purchased a 2014 new in November last yr we have had it out about 4 times it sat about three weeks before taking it out last weekend. I noticed on turns especially slow turns the loud squeaking thought something was seriously wrong stopped looked at everything and it was ok, got to the campground and mentioned it to the CG volunteer who I know has had campers for decades he said it was the springs and sometimes that just happens. Is this true? Is there a fix? He said the more you use it the less it will happen.

Thanks for any input as I said scared the heck out of me when I first heard it.

Is that your WDH making that sound? Had springs make a little noise but nothing like you talk of.

I am just Guessing you are referring to your (Wildwood X-Lite)? Loud Squeaking on a Leaf Spring Suspension at (Slow Speeds) can be the (Springs Rubbing each other/shackles rubbing/equalizer triangle/slipper spring rubbing on its pad or Bearing going bad in a Hub! Now if you throw in all the different (WDH/with or without S/C) then you will need a Search Party to Find it! Youroo!! It really Helps if you supply Info!

Ok so if it is the WDH why is it happening? It's set up the same as when the dealer set it up, is there a reason to be concerned?

What'sa weight distribution thingy........LOL It's a Pro Series WDH currently no sway control all my trips this season are within an hr drive on two lane highways After we pay for daughter #2's wedding in September (second one in two yrs) we might have not only a life but the money to go on actual trips....Spoke to the dealer and the service dept said it is normal for the springs to make noises on slow turns and such, I hope I'm not missing anything.....Youroo had three of those heart attacks on a bun last Saturday using VT Cheddar and VT bacon that was after wife made me go on a seven mile hike..

VT hope you don't have to pay for (3 Weddings) for the same Girl? My wife tells me to (Take a Hike) also! Distance is not the Factor for Sway Control! Youroo!!
