squeeeek ?

Gonna try out that silicon spray tomorrow. Got me two cans of the stuff. I looked at it yesterday and there are several places I can stick the little hose down between the dash, glass and window pannel. Taking a week-end trip and thought it be the perfect time to do this.

If I can't get rid of the squeeeeek, I'll wear headphones or ear plugs from now on.

What is squeaking? Some times you are better off to use Talcum power or even some corn starch on dash and door components.

Being hard of hearing has some advantages, few, but some!

Go to the parts store, buy an in expensive stethoscope, unhook the rubber/plastic tubing from the plastic part with the metal rod and insert a 3 - 4 foot piece of copper tubing. If you have access to a flaring kit, install a flare nut and flare the end of the tubing. This will act like a mini megaphone. Now as you, or someone else, is driving use this device to pinpoint the squeak. You will be amazed how close you can narrow down a squeak or rattle.

I'll have to try my stethoscope on my squeak - a real annoying one that emantes from the floor area near the passenger side of the cab of my Itasca C.

Didn't work. I sprayed evrywhere I could get the small tube into. I think it's coming from the panel to the drivers left. Below the slide window. I may have to take that panel off and see what's in there.

I guess I shouldn't be bichin. The coach has been good to me. We've put 14,000 miles with no mishaps of any sort. Everything works fine except for that DARN sqeek.

Any other Coachmen Catalina owners out there with a similar issue ??
