Noises to be concerned about

I have learned in a short period of time that different noises need attention immediately and some noises mean nothing at all.
I learned a loud squeal noise when turning the steering wheel with smoke coming out under the front end means an idler pulley is going bad. I learned a gurgling noise from the bathroom means water was left running and it is over filling my black tank
I also learned a loud noise coming from the right rear is not a jar of peanut butter falling onto the counter, but was a tire blowing out.
Anybody else hear noises that you should or should not be concerned about?

A loud fading echoing SCREAM, DW fell out the door at 60 mph.

This should be a good one.

Not a noise but if you suddely get a vibration that feels like a tire has suddenly gone out of balance through the steering wheel or feel the MH suddenly start vibrating from the back then pull over immediately. This usually indicates that a tire has suddenly gone out of round as the tread belt starts to separate and the next stage is a zipper flat which results in an immediate loss of air from the tire. I have had several on a car and have had one on a MH. Just don't panic and hit the brakes.

Found on my last coach on a 94 F53 chassis that when you hear a fan belt start squealing you better have a spare .Turned out to be rust on a section of the alternator pulley and once it started slipping it would rip the belt to shreds.
