And from the travel trailer I'm back here in a 'C'. Great to see this reposted so I could quote myself in humor.

I dropped the bottom off the microwave (the black part w/ the light and the 'filters') so I could get at the back plate. I put some foam along the back bottom corner where the plate touches the wall and the lip brackets. I then put electrical tape (2x layers) around the whole bottom of the microwave (the black part that I removed) before I screwed it back in place.

So far so good.

I will do. Maybe one of these great suggestions posted yesterday and today will work.

We have a 2016 23xm. Our last was a class A Fleetwood Southwind. Engine noise so loud you could not hear each other or radio. You were too busy trying to keep it on the road anyway! The Redhawk is very quiet, especially with the new 6 speed. I am actually adding SIRIUS since i can easily hear the radio! We put the table down as the worst offender when the roads are rough. No other major noises yet

I have spent extensive amounts of time quieting down my Greyhawk. I bought some door jamb foam with sticky tape on one side that was pretty thick and some thinner stuff. The microwave was the biggest offender. There were A LOT of rattles/squeaks etc.

Started out having my wife walk back and find the general area/part that was causing the problem. Then I would spend time in each area putting the foam in.

After all that, it has quieted down SIGNIFICANTLY. It just takes time and effort. There are still some tiny niggles with random noises, but I won't fuss more over it.

I think most Class C motor homes make squeaks and rattles. The joint between the cab and overhead box seems to be a significant source. On mine, it has not been loud enough or consistent enough to be annoying, or to force us to speak above a normal conversational tone. There are a few rattles in the back, too. But again, not loud enough to worry about. I did put a new latch on the bedroom closet door, as we determined it was sliding and slamming. And I put some Velcro on the toilet brush bucket so it won't fall over while traveling and slam to the floor. Aside from that, the whistle of the turbocharger is the main thing I hear.

My 09 Greyhawk 31fs had two offending noises.
The loudest was coming from the roof. The TV antenna ends were smacking back and forth with a repedative thudding noise. Solution - I placed two 4"X4" wide strips of eternabond tape under each end on roof. Reduced the mind numbing thud by at least 80%, now barely noticeable. 2nd was my silverware draw opening on bumps then rattling utensils like crazy. Solution - stuck two tiny pieces of Velcro inside bottom corners. Draw holds like a champ now and easily opens by hand. Velcro ins not visible. Other than that, she's quiet unlike my older rig.

Lucky I guess my 09 Greyhawk 31 SS no rattles try to keep dishes and other things padded,I think the big box acts like a amplifier with sounds that happen in the coach. Mine had the carpet removed by previous owner and vinyl floor does not dampen the sounds. Of course two dogs panting in my ears helps ha.Biggest problem I have is trying to cool coach while driving by running roof air, remove cab carpet and added heat shields and padding for sound dampening wife was getting hot foot.

If you have a cover for your roof vents, open the aft vent; it will draw the air through the coach much better. Also don't be afraid to use the E450's AC unit. Its strong and can easily cool the whole coach down if you open the aft vent.
