Axles popping and creaking

We have a new Jayco Whitehawk 20mrb and are preparing for our first outing this weekend. We have noticed that the axles seems to be making a lot of noise. Is this normal?

Are you using a weight distribution/sway control hitch?

The popping and creaking from White Hawk axles is normal, and primarily due to their wide stance. The noise is disconcerting, but we were warned about it by our dealer so knew what to expect.

Your hitch could be making some noise too, but some creaking from it is also normal.

Yes, we do have weight distribution and sway bars.


Thanks, Robkelly, I don't remember them telling us that in the orientation. Makes sense though.
