Creaking floors

Okay, my searches ended up with nothing. My 95 ex 1000 has a creaking noise in the floor just as you enter the rear bedroom area from the center bathroom area. This model has the walk thru bath and a carpeted floor. Now, my pea brain says creaking means dry subfloor, which is good. but the creaking is annoying. The carpet is too good to just rip up and then fix the creak although this may be the best answer. Any hints?

Hi, my trailer, when new, had a creak in the floor at the bedroom entrance. The repair shop repaired the creak from underneath. later I had another creak in the front. I decided to just leave it as is. Now I don't have any creaks; The weather and temperature, and expansion and contraction has something to do with it too. Probably not worth bothering with.

Some people sweep talcum powder over squeaking hardwood floors to stop the squeaks. You could try sprinkling talcum powder over the spot in your trailer and letting it settle through the carpet backing if it's porous. After a while use a vaccuum to lift out the excess.

Squeaking floors

My 2009 International Ocean Breeze 25' TT has loud creaking floors that can be heard 2 campsites away. Very embarassing for me and most probably for Airstream, too. I was told that at the repair shop they would shim up the floor from the underside. My question is, would the bottom pan have to be removed to access the area to be shimmed? The areas are under the entrance and in the bathroom. I can certainly shim up the areas, but not sure what I''ll encounter under there.
Thanks for any input.
