We have noticed a squeaking and creaking noise while going down the road in our 1993 Tioga Class C Motorhome, especially when the road is rough. It sounds like the fiberglass overhead sleeper may be rubbing on the top of the cab causing the noise as the rig moves.
I hate noises in any of my vehicles, so this one is driving me crazy! I posted a thread on RV.Net this morning and received several responses including a link to prior forum posts with the same problem as mine.
It appears that the overhead sleeping area attaches to the cab with 8 screws that become loose and/or back out completely and need to be replaced with more and/or larger screws. According to the posts, the headliner in the cab needs to be removed to expose where the cab and overhead connect. One poster said it took him about 45 minutes to fix, so that means it should only take me about three days. J
As I searched the forum and Web for similar issues and repairs, I found several postings but no pictures or videos. So, to help others in the future, I am going to attempt to do the repair and document it both here and on RV.Net so that others will know whether this is something they want to tackle. Wish me luck!
Would love to hear from any of you who have had similar problems and what the solution was. Thanks in advance for your responses and enjoy your day!
