Floor issues

Our floor on our TT is very squeaky and also bounces and sags when we walk on it. Our island even moves when we walk. Where can I find answers for a fix

Welcome from New Jersey, Some will ask what model unit do you have? How old ? Did you get it new or used ?

Please post year, make and model of RV you have. Different types of RVs have different floor construction.

From your description, it sounds like the actual floor, and not the whole unit bouncing when you walk. If you only have support of the wheels and tongue (even the stabilizers don't help much) your squeak could be the wheel suspension
But again, like everyone else mentioned, without much detail, its only guessing in the dark.

Also, many R/V floors simply have some 'give' to them.

We just attended the Tampa 2020 R/V show and I'd guess 75% of all the R/Vs we went in had floor flex. A Jayco rep was touting their 5/8" tongue and grooved floors as I was showing him the flex near the door.

In our current 5th wheel, you can see the island has some slight movement when you walk close to it. Not much but ever so slightly. These things are NOT built like sticks and bricks homes with 2x6 floor joists on 16" centers.
