Creaking noise in new Class C a warranty item?

We have a new 2017 Winnebago Minnie Winnie. It has an annoying creaking noise coming from somewhere above the passenger side door. It sounds like it might be coming from around where the coach attaches to the cutaway chassis? It's definitely not from anything stored in that area. It's there on anything but the smoothest roads.
Its been there since new and we now have almost 5k miles on the unit.

I was wondering if folks have had any success getting this sort of issue worked on / fixed under warranty.

I'm guessing the dealer will say 'they all do that' and they may well do to a certain extent but this is definitely worse in this one area.

I'm also a little reluctant to have the dealer ripping the coach apart looking for the noise. I suspect Winnebago could find the problem fairly quickly but we are a long way from Forest City.

Anyone else had any success getting this sort of problem fixed under warranty?

Thanks!

I had a noise fairly similar to what you are describing. In my case it was the door and screen. I readjusted the doors and most of the noise stopped. You are under warranty and should take it to your dealer. Don't accept they all do that. Many don't. I know it can be very annoying.
