Squeaky Floor Help

I need help once again. I have a 2005 Mountain Arie with a sqeeky floor. A couple of years ago Newmar fixed a sqeek. It now has returned, I have put 4-5 drywall screws thru the sub floor into the 2x4 joist underneath but , no help. Has any one had this problem and how and how did you fix it? Any help would be appriciated Thanks Gary

garyl,

Chances are it is the 2x3 deck mounts to the chassis. There are bolts underneath in the basement that have to be tightened.

I hope this helps, Daryl

There is an aqua colored tool bar toward the top where you can select the search option. Put in " Floor Squeaks" and there are several topics on it.
Here is the latest one:

Good luck,

garyl,

The problem is you have to cut the black fabric to get to the bolts and if your squeak is is near your tanks they would have to be removed to get to them. Newmar tighten mine at the factory.

Thanks, Daryl

Daryl, I went into the basement and found the bolts that came down thru the sub floor thru the cross members that were welded to the frame and tightened those but it did not change the sound. the black membrane is between the 2x3 and the cross member. I did cut the membrane and moved the insulation and the sub floor is like OBS board. Iam thinking now maybe I should use a differant type of screw and go from the top thru the sub- floor into the 2x3. If I could get some adhesive between the sub floor and the 2x3"s that would help. Any way I really appreciate you help. If I had the time to go to the factory I would if it were not so cold. Gary
