Fleetwood 2007 Southwind 32VS - Loud whining noise

My 2007 Southwind 32VS has developed a loud whining noise, coming from under the motorhome when I accelerate. The higher the speed, the louder the noise with the level much higher in the rear. When I lay off the accelerator the noise goes away. F53 chassis. No noticeable issues with transmission, acceleration or power steering. My guess is rear end or drive shaft. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what was the fix?

have your rear end oil changed. If you have a speed sensor on the top of it, remove and clean it, it's a magnet.

look for oil leaks where the drive shaft connects to the rear end, that could indicate a loose pinion. When the pinion bearings get worn, it will have some slack and could cause a leak there.
