I have a problem with the floor under my feet flexing and making loud banging noises while driving when I either make a turn or hit a bump.
I've had it looked at by local truck dealer and am told they can see the plate flexing when the unit is pushed from side to side. Fleetwood says they now of no such problem and can't help me. I have an appointment with another MH dealer on 10/31 to check this out....anyone else have trouble and/or suggested remedies?

Welcome 2000 stormer to irv2.
The metal plate that you are talking about is it the one beside your LP gas tank or one under your floor board??
The ones next to LP tank was welded with a bow in it and when hot tail pipe heats up will sometimes do that. May need a brace welded to frame from plate.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Is the motorhome out of warranty? [But I'm guessing from your "handle" it may be a 2000 Fleetwood Storm???] If it is still under warranty, take it back to Fleetwood and show them the problem.

I would think a chassis and frame shop would have some suggestions as to how it might be beefed up.

2000 stormer, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I have seen this on other like units. I believe we were able to shim and weld the plate to keep it from poping and being a pain. Good luck and keep us posted as to the outcome.

Looking at my thread history I saw I failed to follow up on my 1st one.
A local dealer had to re-weld both sides of the body to the frame. This later failed and I had it repeated at a truck garage. This evidently did the job as I 've had no problems in over 4 years now.
