Squeaks in floor

Just curious if anyone else has this problem and if I should be concerned. Have a 2015 Jay Flight 23RB trailer. Recently noticed when walking from couch across to bathroom hearing squeak noises in floor mostly in front of sink area. Had a older Coachman previously and did not have this issue. Should I contact dealer for possible warranty issue or is this normal in Jayco.
Thanks for comments.

You probably just have a squeaky floor.

Squeaks in my floor seem to come and go. I suppose it has something to do with the flexing of the trailer over time. In most cases it is nothing to be concerned over.

That's my point. Let's build a tiny little house, complete with running water, drainage, sewerage, roofing, etc etc... And then let's run it down the road at 60 miles per hour. Heck... Let's cut a 14 foot hole in the side of it, and then jam 1500 pound room that automagically slides in and out at the touch of a button. People, no disrespect to the OP, But let's try and keep the;

"should I bring this in for warranty work, because clearly this is terrible workmanship?" - Type questions in perspective.

These are expensive toys, no doubt. But a residential home is going to cost 20 times these things, and a residential home doesn't move down the highway.

Of course these RV trailers are going to creak, groan, break, leak, etc over time. That's the "fun" of owning one. I always say, "you need to either be independently wealthy, or handy to own an RV, or else you'll drive yourself crazy trying to chase every little problem"

It is frustrating. When we bought our trailer last year it had a creak that would groan every time you walked through the main area. Drove me crazy. I thought about bringing it in to have a fixed because it was excessive. However, it eventually just stopped and we haven't heard it in a long time. I don't know if the plywood floor shrunk a little or dried but there isn't any creaking. So don't give up on it yet. Especially if it's brand new.

On a side note, I have a friend who bought a new Airstream. Same thing, major floor noise. He actually got them to replace the subfloor under warranty.

Our new WH 20 MRB had a soft spot on the floor of the kitchen area. Wife asked the dealer to look at. He called today and said all issues have been repaired under warranty and the rig is ready to pick up. This included the soft spot on the floor.

We pick it up Monday!

I say, take it in!
