Creaking Floor?

We have the 2011, Flagstaff 831 RLBSS took delivery in April 2010, and its a good TT however we have an annoying condition of "creaking floors", primarily in the living room/kitchen area. It doesn't seem to matter how the trailer is setup, or leveled, it still creaks! We tried putting the stabilizers down first prior to extending the slide outs, and also placing more blocks under the electric stabilizers so they did not extend as much, same thing. I'm looking to try additional jacks/stands near the mid-section of this TT as you also have a noticable "bounce" when another adult walks in the the TT .?
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
Best Regards

Well i will tell you, i have a 2006 rockwood and the floor has creaked from day one, i don't think you will find a way to stop it, it's just some thing you get us to and as far as the bounce, this is a standard feature at leat with Rockwood, no extra cost.........

I just purchased a Blue Ridge in Sig, and had a creak in the floor as you entered the bedroom. The dealer added a brace between the frame and the floor and no more creak. If its under warranty have the dealer fix it.

The colder it gets the more mine creaks.
We just camped 4 days where temps got in upper 30s at night.
When I got up to visit the head the floors and cabinets and walls
all creaked and popped like we were having a barn dance in there!!

Good luck getting yours fixed!
We were out all of June and I was able to make my middle of
the night trip without waking my wife several times.
NOT in cold weather!!
It's just "part of the adventure".
