my belly(pan) rumble....

Our 2015 FC 25FB has this 'feature' as well. Right in front of the sink area in the galley. As proud and happy as we are with our trailer, we sure wouldn't mind doing without the rumble of the belly pan every time one of us walks over this patch! Another item to add to our list for the next dealership visit.
Hearing that it's not a major issue is a comforting feeling however. Glad we are a part of this forum.

As promised, this is the update on the resolution of the "tin canning" issue by the folks at Colonial. Let me first of all say that this was only one of several issues that we asked Colonial to take care of for us and I could not be happier with their service and the quality of their work on the other items. However, this noise is still there when we walk in front of the sink and or/door. The attempted fix was to run a 1 1/2" or so wide by 1/8" thick strip of aluminum riveted to the underbelly, across the AS in about the mid-section of the bottom between the holding tanks and front of the trailer. We will be bringing the AS back to Colonial in the spring at then end of our winter travels.
I certainly understand that this is not a substantive issue from a mechanical perspective. However, this is a significant nuisance that is there more often than not, tanks full or empty, warm temperatures or less so, stabilizers in place or not. I also understand the reason for the noise. This does not mean that I am ready to accept this in a trailer touted as being of the highest quality. Given the cost of this unit, I should not have to put up with it. This is an issue well known to the manufacturer and, in my opinion, should be addressed before the unit leaves the factory. Better yet, build the solution into every trailer.

I have found that if I go out the next day and give the stabilizers another quarter turn to firm up the ground connection the noise stops. There seems to be some settling overnight of the stabilizers sinking slightly into the dirt.
