^^ Agreed. The outlaws' is a Fleetwood Jamboree. I think it may be impossible to get all the rattles and squeaks considering that you're trying to attach a house to a truck. Just the nature of the beast, and if you can eliminate some, good for you!

Haven't traveled a long way yet, but I could just turn off my hearing aids. Of course that will not help the wife.

If anyone is interested my wife and I test drove a Thor Palazzo 33.3 bunkhouse and there is no comparison, the Palazzo was nearly silent except a few cabinet noises that could be quickly fixed. I also drove a Thor Chateau Super C on the Ford F550 chassis. It was also quieter than my Greyhawk prior to the changes. The Thor Super C was louder than the Palazzo.

Brian, it sounds like the previous owner abused the RV. We went from a 35' Class A to a 31' Class C and there's a world of difference in the noise level. We did as much as we could to quiet things down with some success but the Class C was quiet from the start. The previous owner seems to have taken very good care of her.

Tex Arvee's "East bound whistle" is classic! I also think it would be great name for a rig

My Melbourne lost the flap locks on the kitchen exhaust fan and is constantly flapping. Asked dealer for replacement and no success.

We have all of the rattles taken care of in our 2015 Greyhawk 31FK except for the microwave. It squeaks so badly I can hardly stand it. We think it must be the mounting(s). If I stand up and lean against it with a lot of pressure, it minimizes it. Should we take it off the wall and do something? I even suggested taking it off and getting a countertop microwave and store it til we need it. Any suggestions?

If you get the squeaks and rattles out of your microwave, please post the method used. Ours does the same.

I found the microwave rattle! Pop the screens out from underneath. Shove a hand towel up the vent hole toward the center of microwave. This squeak was maddening! I haven't had the time to disassemble and fix correctly yet. The wife drives... I work on squeaks and rattles.

I fixed the micro squeak by putting a bead of clear silicone on the bottom of the micro where it touches the wall.
