Noisy axle/suspension while travelling

It it normal to have some suspension noise while travelling?

I've got a 2012 Jayco Jay Series Sport 10. Use it approx. 5-8 times a summer. Still getting "broken in" I guess.

The last few trips, I've noticed (with the windows down) a substantial squeaky noise while travelling. Almost like an old box spring and mattress. Only while going over bumps.

Any advice or tips on how to resolve? Given the newer age of the trailer, does the axle need to be greased or lubricated at all or is all this just normal?

Also, anyone have any suggestions on stabilizer jacks for the front of the A-frame? For some reason, Jayco only put rear stabilizers on the model I have. Is it easy to mount scissor jacks to the frame?

Thanks everyone

Dry metal-on-metal (or rubber) parts = squeaking.


There are rebuild kits that include grease fittings and bronze bushings.


(no opinions on additional stabilizers)
