Squeaking Floor

Picked up 2020 FC 27FB 2 weeks ago and the floor around the bed squeaks when standing on it. I already have plan on returning to the dealer next month for other issues.
My question is there something that can be done to make the floor quite?

Try loosening and maybe retightening the screws in the molding between the wall and floor. Try various adjustments on loosening and tightening the screws.
That will usually resolve the squeaking for a few days and then you get a new squeak in a different area. Then repeat.

The solution is most likely to take some silicone spray, and spray the vinyl edging at the base of the wall. You can also loosen the screws holding the vinyl edging, which should also help.

Took our 2017 25a FC to JC a few months ago for warranty work including a squeaking floor between shower and bed. Whatever they do, it worked. Solid floor with no squeaking whatsoever after JC fix.

As others have mentioned. Try loosening the molding between floor and wall and that should resolve it. Mine had the same issue around the bed and fixed after I loosened it a bit.

Same as HHPJ. My very loud squeak was curb side between bed and window. Dealer fixed it under warranty. Not sure what they did.

Am at Jackson Center in the Terraport as I type this. The noisy floor was the main item on our punch list prior to going out of warranty and the tech did as described above. So far it's quiet. I thought he'd have to drop the bottom off the trailer, remove the black tank, and get to the point where the plywood is attached to the frame outriggers to fix the noise. Luckily that wasn't required.

Thanks for the responses. I have a dealer service appointment in 3 weeks so I'll wait and let them figure it out.

Baby Powder

Just found out dealer used baby powder to fix mine. First day on the road after fix I noticed quite a bit of powder along floor under bedroom window...where squeak was. Assume they loosen flooring and pour it in area. It worked.
