Entry door trim squeak

Have developed an annoying squeak/creaking in the wooden door frame around the entry door.
Any suggestions on eradication of this annoying noise including removal/replacement of the frame pieces would be appreciated. (Particularly what type of screw bits to use)

Thanks in advance...

Greg, I had a section in the Entegra DVD files on my coach, and the file labeled "Interior" had several pages of tweaks for squeaks in the coach. I will try to attach mine here, but if you have the DVD in your Black Box (or download from Entegra on your year coach), there could be some info on the door.

The screws are #2 square bit screws. I buy them by the 6 pack at Harbor Freight. One trick to stop the wood squeak is to remove the wood trip and install a strip of electrical tape as a cushion between the wood.

We’ve got the same issue/annoyance as well. DW wedged a folded napkin temporarily until I can remove the trim. I like Chuck’s idea of electrical tape and will try that.
