I noticed that creaks and rattles diminished quite a bit if I used the transit bars when going on a long trip (over 100 miles).
May not help your particular problem, but may help someone...

The cab over squeak in my unit is not that bad, but I do hear one there, it is not annoying enough.

You just have to determine what can be fixed and what cannot. If you are not comfortable taking things apart and putting them back together, it may be harder to deal with. I can imagine a dealer not being much help or pushing back on some of these noise issues, as many are pretty normal.
What did you do to help the shower door rattle. I don't really hear it, but my husband HATES it!

We had the squeaking problem with windows and the door. Solution: spray silicone onto a rag and wipe gaskets down.

Other than big bumps that shake everything, our 2016 31FS is fairly quiet.

We take the glass tray out of microwave and store it while driving. Put towels between pots and pans, etc. The shower door is a big one. Thinking about taking it out completely and putting in a curtain.

If you rode in your travel trailer, I am sure you would think it was coming apart at the seams. LOL.

I think this may be one of the chief causes of noise in the cab of the typical class C. The driver and passenger door seals squeak. Mine squeak for the first few miles, then stop. I like the idea of silicone on a rag. I'll try that next trip and see how that works. I'm surprised our Seneca cab isn't more noise-filled than it is. It's a truck cab, first and foremost. They didn't really design them to be as quiet as a passenger car.

I also found that lots of squeaking and creaks and groans might be a sign that you need new tires. When I bought a new set of tires, it made a world of difference. (Check tire pressure too!)

1. The oven door. Open the oven door and put a towel over the door and close it when you travel. Be sure the towel is thick enough to make the door fit really snug. If it's still loose, fold the towel and try again.
2. The roundabout tray in my micro is really noisy. Either take out the tray when you travel, or stuff some towels in the microwave to hold the plate firm.
3. Put padding between pots, pans and dishes whenever possible.
4. If you have a folding metal lit over your stovetop, get rid of it. Most rv stores and camping world sell a nice hardwood cutting board top that is made to set on top of the stove, it stays put when traveling, don't rattle, looks nice and makes counter space when not using the stove and doubles as a cutting board!
ditto !
