cracking in floor

When we are all set up and parked in our Anthem we will hear a cracking noise in the floor periodically throughout the night. Has anyone else experienced this?

I think what you MIGHT be hearing is the wood frame UNDER the floor settling into position on the frame after you have leveled the coach. The wood in the subfloor and the plywood on top of it as well as the hung walls have to be able to flex a little as the coach moves and flexes, when you level the coach you put the frame and thus the subfloor in a twist from natural as you level the house on uneven ground. We experience that to some degree often and I agree it can play with your mind but I really do not think that it is anything to worry about. In fact, quite the opposite, house is moving and adapting to the frame and thus relieving stress on the house that could otherwise cause cracks and breaks. All just my opinion.

We hear the same things now and then and it seems to correspond to leveling. I think these coaches have to have some play in their frames to accommodate all the stresses they're put under. It's kind of analogous to airplane wings flexing during flight and turbulence.

I have the same noise and will visit the factory in the next 6 months to get it fixed. It is not the floor or settling, it is the leveling actuators. They crack after they've been down awhile. I traced the noise from underneath.At first it was just the rear, now its both. Talked with Don about it at Louisville and he said he had never heard of the problem before. Maybe they'll have it figured out before I get up this spring.
