    Think I am being a bit over zealous checking everything on our lovely new hymer :rolleyes: but sometimes when manouvering (not always) there is a noise similar to the noise you hear on dry brakes in a car. The brakes arent being applied and it isnt always there. Am I being a bit mad worrying about it? Does anyone know what it could be ? Its coming from underneath the van around the back wheel area. (n)

    Absolutly love our new van it is so quiet inside while driving :)

    What motorhome and what base vehicle.
    My 2001 Hymer on a fiat ducato with twin springs sometimes creak and this is cured by applying graphite grease between the two springs.
    This advice is no good to you sorry.
    You replied as I was editing my post.

    When was the Alko chassis last PROPERLY serviced.....wheels off ground to grease axle etc.

    Lack of axle greasy can cause creaky.....invariably dried out hanger Bush's on regular leaf springs.
