Passenger Wall Popping / Flexing Noise

Hello all, I know noise is part of the experience with our class c rigs, but I'm wondering if what I'm hearing is something unique to my 2020 31F or if this is a common thing. While driving I can hear what seems to be the passenger side wall flexing and making sort of a constant popping noise as if plastic was rubbing against fiberglass or something like that. Hard to describe, but I notice that is much louder on harsher roads, and/or when its hot outside as if it has something to do with the flexing of the rig. I can sort of recreate the sound if I push on the wall around the window just above the sofa - Anyone experience this noise at all? Thanks!

Could it be your overhead rooftop antenna? I had that problem and it took a long time to find and it sounded like the wall, frame, or something else but was the antenna slightly bouncing on the rooftop. ~CA

That rig probably has a fixed mast antenna, so I doubt that's it.

There have been MANY windows installed incorrectly in our rigs. Wonder if that could be a player? Since you can "re-create" the sound by pushing around the window?

ETA: That's a new one on me. There are LOTS of sounds to deal with in a MH, but I haven't heard something like that mentioned before...

i never hear anything like that on mine. I've stowed the glass from microwave and the oven shelves to keep down the noise (drives me crazy while driving, what is that sound?).
