Noise over my head

At low speeds I'm getting allot of noise over my head. Sounds like it's in the overhead cabinets. On smooth roads it's gone. Sounds like cables hitting the plywood. 2011 Knight. Hope it's not in the celling.

I had a similar problem see below and what I found. Not sure if this is what you are experiencing but worth a check.

I had a noise coming from behind my seat. Mine sounded like two wood bowls clunking together. When I first start driving the coach the noise isn't there but after about 5 to 10 miles the noise starts unless the road is really smooth. At times I think it's the slide but when my wife was driving I traced the sound to above the front fluorescent light. Or at least I think that's were it is coming from.

I solved my noise problem. I pulled my front fluorescent fixture behind the driver seat and found the coax cable for satellite install. I could see where the connector ends were hitting against an aluminum brace. Taped & relocated the coax and no more noise.

I added some thin foam padding to the floor of the front cabinets to eliminate noise. I don't know where your TV is located, but mine was overhead with a ton of cables up there. When I replaced my TV, I tied everything up. When we get a new noise, I have my wife chase it down while driving.

I have hearing loss from work and my wife is always accusing me of not hearing her, yet when we're in the coach, she can't hear half of the stuff I hear.

Don, that's called selective hearing. My DW gets pissed every time I ask her to get up and go check that noise so I can fix it when we stop.

Sammie......Mine must be related to yours. She sits over there reading or sleeping and when I ask her to check she gets indignant. I got her one day when I stood up and started to walk away from the driver's seat....she jumped then. We have this battle about every third trip.

Found allot of loose cables inside the fnt TV laying on the wood bottom. Tie them to a rail inside. Also I put in a key holder that is attached to the inside wall. I'm going to find a way to isolate them. Hope this works.

I had an overhead noise kind of like what you describe. Turns out it was the TV crank up antenna that was not setting into the receiving bracket when I lowered it. I turned the wheel to align it so it set into the receiving bracket and the noise disappeared.

I guess the DWs don't like to get up while we drive. When I ask mine to see if a drawer or something opened up she accuses me of trying to kill her. I reassure her that the road is straight and I will NOT make any sudden stops. She is right is really is not a safe thing to do while the coach is in motion. We know of two ladies that were really banged up while walking in the MH while the husband was driving. deSanford PS sometimes going around a curve or stepping suddenly on the brakes can be dangerous to the DWs.

That's pretty funny (not the getting hurt part). My GF is a flight attendant and moves around more than I like. She's always getting up to pour drinks or fix a sandwich. All I can do is warn her - "left turn ahead", etc. She just calls it "turbulence"! Remember the book, "Coffee, Tea, or Me?"

Falcon, I think your one of the lucky ones with a GF that likes to get up and serve you while your driving. I'm lucky if I can get my DW to get me a cool drink let alone, make me a sandwich. Geeez, I guess I shouldn't complain so much as she does feed the dog cookies while we're on the road.

Sammie.

Yesterday I went and checked the front TV for cables. Sure enough there was a mile of wires. I tied them all to a wooden rail. Also I checked in the left overhead cabinet and saw two screws that held a small panel to the inside of the cabinet. Opening it up I found 20 miles of wire. Many were laying on the bottom. I forced some foam to insulate it. Also I made a key holder in the right cabinet. I padded the wall to help there. The Stereo cabinet was next. Lot's of wires laying on the bottom. Hope this helps. Will test later.

My DW has no problem going back and making me a sandwich or getting me a drink. I do try to warn her of upcoming curves, ect.

What I have is a squeaky entrance door. I have lubed the rubber gasket with silicone, ect, but it still squeaks. Any other solutions? It seems to fit tight.

It does annoy the DW, and when she is annoyed I usually know about it.

My door used to squeak or rattle. Turns out it was the screen door rubbing or rattling against the main door. Added a rubber bumper and cured it.

That sounds plausible. I'll check into it.

Thanks.
