Knock on space above drivers seat

I have a knock in the area above the drivers seat in the cavity below the mattress. It sounds almost like something is rolling around. I had a shop look at it and didn't find anything. They put insulation in the area. It did make the sound a little quieter but thre is still something loose and making noise. Any ideas? I was thinking about removing the panels below the mattress and looking into it myself. Thanks.

Do you have one of those super lifting magnets?

If its a bolt or a tool you should be able to attract it. if that works then move it to the end of the panel for easier removal.

If all else fails you can contact Demartini RV in Grass Valley and ask how Richard fixed mine. Mine sounded as though the ladder was hitting the front part of the cab as I was driving making it rattle. If I picked up speed it would go away but at slower speed it was very obvious. He had to bolt something down. Hope this helps.

Hey 4XGLMPR, have you had the loud squeak coming from what I believe is the dash and some are saying from the overhead bunk? I was going to call Richard to see if he has dealt with this..Thanks

In that other thread, I think it was Sean, said it is actually the clip on camera. They sprayed that with silicone or foam tape and it went away. Another user said "it can't be that easy" did the same thing and the squeak is gone.

I have not had the dash squeak you speak of. The overcab rolling/rattle is real distinctive and you would know it was above you.

Brian, thanks for the info. I'l take the two panels off and take a look inside. Regarding the squeak by the dash: when I had the motorhome at the Dodge dealer in Green Bay to repair the check engine light he told me they have had a few other ones with the same complaint. I will check for the camera/ mirror solution and let you know. I also want to check the hood. I have noticed that everytime the dash squeaked I could see the hood move Thank you.
