2016 CC SB 33IK (creaking floors)

Imagine my surprise when after my first travel experience with my new 33IK. The floors in mstr br creak. After looking from underneath storage area, I can find no evidence the flooring is glued to the aluminum sub structure. Probably another cost cutting measure. Has anyone found a workable way to silence the floors?

My steps in my 2016 FB2 creeks slightly. I'm going to brace them up some. I can get to the problem, thru the vent, and where the vacumn is located.

I Don't believe the floor is screwed or glued to the sub structure. I filled my water tank once with a bit to much pressure only to notice the floor above inside the trailer was bowed up considerably. After pressure was released it came back down. However I swear my island now moves around more when I walk around. If I had bowed the Aluminum structure it would have not returned. Thinking about trying to get in there somehow and securing the floor. However maybe it is not secured for a good reason!!!

My floors squeaked in my 38 EL. Just sprayed silicone between the wood and aluminum floor joists and the problem is gone for now

I have a 2017 CC Silverback with creaking floor near the doorway on both sides. Noticed when examined from below there were two lines of adhesive on the underside of the foor on either side of first floor beam. It appears when the floor was installed the flooring was set on the adhesive coated beam and then moved 6in to final position thus leaving beam/flooring interface without adhesive. In my opinion flooring needs to be reglued.
