Squeaky Dash 2004 Southwind

My 2004 Southwind has developed a very loud squeak (screech) and I've narrowed down the location to where the dash rests against the driver's side wall. As the motorhome bounces down the road the dash floats up and down and rubs the wall.

Any suggestions on where to start to fix this? I don't know whether the dash is supposed to be fixed firmly to the outside wall or if it's just that some dirt or debris has gotten between them - but it's really annoying and loud. Every screw that I can reach without starting to take things apart seems to be tight.
