Squeaky trailer

Every time I enter the trailer I hear squeaks coming from both wheel wells (right and left). My question, is this normal? When I'm boon docking and have lowered the stabilizers the squeaky sounds are minimized but still can be heard. Any ideas?

Could be the rubber bushings at the shocks attachment points. Try a little WD- 40 spray.

I'd go with Silicone spray. WD40 has petroleum distillates (IIRC). That's not good for rubber. Good suggestion though, on the shocks.

Silicone is the right product. Don't know what I was thinking. Thanks!

Thank you. Got two cans of silicone spray. I'll let you know if it works.

It appears that the squeaks are coming from the leaf springs that are covered by the under panels. Any ideas as to how to get to them?

I don't believe your trailer has leaf springs. It should have torsion bars. Do you have stabilizer jacks on each corner? I can't believe the axle mounts would move enough to cause the squeaking unless they were not tightened on installation. The swivel points of the torsion arm may have some road grime that causes the squeaking.
But if the stabilizers are deployed properly, there shouldn't be much movement of the trailer.
I'm not sure, but there may be some movement between the hull and frame.

Is it possible that the noise you are hearing is coming from the subfloor? Mine squeaks some when you walk around inside.
