The other thing that can make plenty of noise (At least it did on ours) was a dry ball/hitch. I dabbed a touch of grease on the ball as well as the WD sockets and that was the end of it.

I have a Reese dual cam WD hitch and it can make all kinds of noises when backing up.

We have the same trailer, with the same noises. I think it is the WDH. It only happens when we are backing up, usually at an angle.

Biggest head ache so far is the lack of kitchen counters.

A glitch with the fridge has been fixed.

Your own mechanical skills will serve you well over the time of your ownership of an RV.

Ha! I think my 19rd has LOTS of counter space. In my old tt, it felt like I was fixing breakfast in the sink. Guess its all relative.

Oh, yeah, I've got lots more counter space than my old trailer: 9"x18" vs. 2"x16"= 506.25% more countertop.

Adding the cutting board over the sink gives another 1,200% of workspace.

Another recommendation, not just for the noises, but even for a just in case scenario. If you have availability of a very large area, take the TT there and practice backing up with several different maneuvers. Listen for the noises, have the DW give practice giving you directions; get out and look at WD bars and axle positions at different points in turns so you have an idea of what looks normal.
If you want to take it a step further, another thing I recommend, is having the DW practice, hitching, unhitching, parking, backing and maneuvering on her own while you give directions. I did this with my DW. Couple of reasons. one, you never know what can happen. If there were to be some sort of accident, or something and you were incapacitated, she may be left on her own to get the rig hooked up and home. Or, two, as has already happened, we were in a time crunch to get out and get into a good site for trip out. I had to work later, so by the time I got home the DW had the TT all loaded and hooked up, ready to go. All I had to do was walk in, change clothes, get in the cab and leave.

There is a lot of noise from the hitch. Grease the ball ever 1500 miles and if you have an equalizer brand hitch grease/lube the pivot joint at the knuckle. Lubing these two areas will reduce most of the noise.
