Gasser Dog House Vibration

Anyone getting a vibration (“rattling”) noise from the dog house when the engine is at higher rpm’s? If I put my foot on it, the vibration stops. I took off the engine cover, but can’t find anything loose or rubbing.
Any ideas?

You might try some soundproofing material on the cover, also check that nothing is touching it on the underside. How is it fastened? Perhaps tightening the fasteners or clamps could help.

I have not experienced it. What year and model do you have?

Your profile says you have a Fleetwood Storm most dog houses have a screw driver latch that locks to a chassis frame bar make sure its turned to lock, you do not need carbon monoxide entering the coach.

If it stops when you put your foot on it you might want to check the latch. Most latches have a threaded mount so you can adjust the pressure when it is turned to lock.

Good luck and keep us posted.

It’s so strange. I have lined the cover with
Sound deadened, taken it off to check for anything rubbing and tightened everything I can think of. It only does it under load where the revs are higher. If I let up on the gas a little, it goes away. Even though my profile says I have a Fleetwood Storm, it is
It is a Newmar Baystar. Same chassis only a little heavier. One of those “crazy” little things that are irritating.

Have you tried driving with the dog house off under the same condition, to verify it’s not something else? Look closely at the engine and components for shiny whiteness marks. Exhaust heat shields are notorious. I know you have found that your foot stops it, but if you can’t find anything loose, sometimes you have to look further.

I had the same issue on my coach. The problem was fixed during a visit to Newmar. The transmission dipstick tube was rattling against something and they moved it slightly and added some padding. Problem solved and no buzzy doghouse since.

Thanks for the information. I’ll check the trans filler tube
and see if that could be it.
