wood on wood noise....

I have an annoying squeaking or maybe creaking noise in my cabinets over the cockpit of my Seabreeze. It is the sound of wood on wood and is driving me nuts, I have tightened all accessible screws and still persist, seems effected by humidity and temp too, as would be expected. Thought about spraying furniture polish around the offending area, or maybe baby powder, not sure which would be more effective. I have eliminated most dash noises but now this noise creeps up on me. I also have a new noise up behind the tv that is noticeable on very rough roads, sounds to me like maybe a loose wire or cable hitting on cap or cabinet backs, will hunt that down tonight, but still not sure what to do about the cabinet creaks.

Suggestions?

We had a similar noise in the wall of a 2000 Itasca Horizon several years ago. It was a high pitched squeak that was driving me and MsC nuts. It seemed to be coming from where the seat belt attached to the steel post in the wall (supports part of the roof. I could violently rock the coach and get a small squeak while MsC listened to isolate it. When we finally located the area I started taking it apart (several things to remove) I finally got to Styrofoam that apparently is insulation in the wall, found two loose pieces that were not glued in place. I would have figured they would have used spray insulation but this was just sheet stuff cut to fit. Glue and duct tape to fill the gap and stop the slip stopped the squeak and save my sanity. DT the rescue again!
Hope you find the source, it can drive you bonkers

Have you tried putting pieces of hard plastic between the wood? I have used pieces of plastic from the displays that tools come on.

Talcum powder (baby powder) can be used on the noisy wood and it smells good also. This will also stop a squeaky wood floor.

One down...

Eureka, found the rattle up behind the tv, the cable from the switch box to the tv was, evidently, never really secured anywhere, I was able to reach up in behind the tv to find that the cable was hitting against the fiberglass front cap, I had to get in the area behind the switch box to gather some cables together and put tie wraps around them to secure.

Also I tightened every screw I could find in the front cabinets area, then sprayed the areas where cabinets met with furniture polish and wiped down, maybe that will help. Trip coming end of week will tell.

When I have a rattle that is loud enough to be annoying I just turn my hearing aids volume down.

We had a front TV squeak and I sprayed silicone where the wood joined. Problem solved.

I had an annoying high pitched squeek too. It was the gray styrofoam (blow in-spray in a bottle?) stuff rubbing between plastic panels. Silicone spray stopped it for a day, eventually pulling out the excess stopped it altogether.
