Floor Squeak

We have a squeak in the bedroom floor at the foot of the bed and in front of the closet. Has anyone tried to repair a floor squeak? I guess you have to pull up the carpet. Is it difficult to get the carpet back in place correctly? I really don't want the dealer don't this.

We have the same with our Trilogy. It does not happen all the time and improves when the rig is leveled properly. Adding stacker jacks behind the front leveling jacks seemed to help as well.

Never pulled the carpet to add screws and probably never will.

We eliminated our squeek by identifying the location from the underside (basement ). It occurs where two pieces of the plywood flooring meet. I cut a block of wood to fit between the aluminum struts attaching it with glue and screws. Black duct tape sealed block since I cut the barrier lining to expose the seam.

Thanks for the replies. The squeak is just far enough forward that is in the overhang. I cannot get to it from the baggage areas.

We have a similar situation in our front bath. And like you, I can't get to the overhang.

Don't feel like lifting the linoleum, so I guess we'll live with it.

If someone has another suggestion, I'm open.

Again, the squeek in the bath area is easily accessible from the basement. I did open the heater duct to glue and screws a metal plate across the seam in that area. A piece of sheet metal and foil tape sealed it back up.

Here is a link to a YouTube video that shows how to get rid of the squeak
Self tapping metal screws might be best suited here.
Be aware of water lines and electrical beneath the floor.
