FWIW our creaking floor on our 2014 27fb Flying Cloud in front of the fridge (a subfloor seam) went away on its own at some point. I haven't heard it in months and it used to do it a lot. Heh whatever.

I also agree strongly with waiting to make a 6 hr dealer trip until you have a good punch list of items. And you will..... We just did our last warranty list repair visit in October as ours was expiring. We didn't have many items that time but had several appliance failures and punch list items done on dealer visits @ 3, 6, and 14 months or so.

I finally had a chance to get over to my Airstream. I tried loosening the screws on the trim under the window. I am extremely happy to report that it worked. The noise is not 100% gone but it's much much better. I can definitely live with it the way it is now. I'm so happy that my trailer will stay intact & not be cut open anywhere. I understand that cutting open the underbelly is not that uncommon or a tremendously big deal. But I was not happy with the thought of my brand new, VERY EXPENSIVE, trailer being cut open & patched up. Thanks to all for your replies. Especially Pat, who originally posted the idea of loosening the trim under the window. I'm a happy camper.

A 23FB came to the shop yesterday with a bad squeak under the front bedroom window. I showed one of the new techs how to perform this, and, combined with some silicone dry lube, completely stopped the squeak.
