Dash/Overhang Sqeaking - All Mfg.

We have been having a rather intersting exchange of information on the National RV yahoo group about a somewhat common problem of bad/harsh sqeaking and noise coming from undetermined/un-identifyable areas under the dash and possibly the cabinet overhang above. I am experiencing this, possibly as a result of a typical Ohio highway chuckhole on a 97 P-chassis. (We have had Ford chassis problems as well, and covering a wide range of build dates)
Some have actually found separation of the dash and firewall, broken welds, broken brackets etc., leading to some unorthodox repair, and most likely costly repair. Some found broken TV mounts/cabinet shift.
My question to the forum, has this been a problem for other chassis and RV manufacturers? Have you experienced this, what was done for repair?

We just returned from a trip to the north east and beleive me the roads up there are nothing to brag about. When you are driving down what is suppose to be a good 2 lane hyway and a sign reads pavement ends next 14 miles(hyway 3) what can you do. We developed many new rattles, screws came out and wood split where screws didn't come out but nothing I can't repair. I guess the long cold winters up there take a toll on the roads.
