My new trailers floor is squeaking

My 2016 jayco 7 rbm floor is getting noisier. I have been living in my 126 sq ft trailer since purchase in November 2015. I now know just about every square inch of this thing now....cabin fever. While I wait for my land deal to go through and I will build and either sell or make this 18ft trailer a guest bedroom an onsite bed at jobs and maybe a little travel. Who knows, but I am trying to keep it as new as possible. What started as a small squeak by the door has now spread throughout the whole trailer, it's not that loud....just annoying!
Is this normal for a 3.5 month old?

My 2013 Eagle fifth wheel has had a squeaky spot on my side of the bed. When I asked Jayco about it they said its tongue and groove and humity and drying can effect the fit. They said they would authorize a one time attempt at a fix, if I wanted. I skipped on it. I was just happy to learn it wasn't structural.
Give them a call and see if they suggest a fix, since it sounds like yours is wide spread.

Squeaks can be produced by anything screwed down to the floor, like cabinets, dinette seats, bed frame surrounding etc. Using silicone or foam tape under the accessory will eliminate it, unless it is specific to the floor. Squeaky floors can be repaired with drilling a small pin hole and injecting watered down high quality carpenters glue.

Lil TEA; let me know how you make out with fixing the squeaks. I assume by the door is a dinette it is easy to unscrew and put some foam tape on. You can put some white or blanc silicone on the screws.
