Suspension

Has anyone had a problem where the suspension creeks as you walk around the main cabin?

Yes. Not much and not often. Hot days and cold nights in N Michigan gave us a few creaks. We were also running the fireplace in mornings and it was 80's mid day. Back in Georgia. Have not noticed and more noises. These things are aluminum and wood. Gonna get some noises here and there! Go do a factory tour, as we did, and you will see why you might get a little noise. Joints are constantly expanding and contracting rolling down the road. No give would be an ugly thing! IF YOURS IS SERIOUS, track it, make notes and take it to a dealer.
Next year, 2015, take your rig to the Forest River Rally in Goshen, IN. They have techs on hand and fix your rig whether in warranty or out, FREE. 500 were there and rigs were fixed! I will never own another brand again, period!!

X2...... you're always going to have some creaking, cracking and popping. Temperature fluctuations will exacerbate the noises, as will the distance your leveling jacks are extended, how much weight is in your coach, how full your tanks are.....I think you get the picture - it's a part of owning an RV

Enjoy it - not everyone is fortunate enough to own one. Happy trails!!
