You're a big help! Actually, we don't drive with music on being from different generations. When alone I play happy music for the cats. You sure you didn't have White's metal detectors?

When traveling over bumpy roads, the top comes loose and then makes a loud clanging every time I hit a bump!

The top is designed to be removed for cleaning/servicing and I don't know how to make it more secure. Photo 2 shows the rear clips that hold the top down.

I'd be willing to caulk it down but have no idea what material would be appropriate to handle the heat from the stove.


Thank you for your ideas/suggestions and solutions!
There are 2 more clips on the front side that are hard to get into place as well as release. when they are in place that top will NOT move.

Sorry: no metal detector here.

No worse smell than rubber compound melting when expecting biscuits baking aroma. When it gets cooler outside I plan to have a good look at the oven door, sounds like inside the door also needs tightening up. It has been a help to have a son drive so I can investigate where those noises come from, but they get upset with "old Mom" moving around when rolling. Now be honest, how else can you figure it out???
I am sure the RV mfg have all the insight & knowledge of all of the problems of this nature. So it is pretty much a given they decide to not fix in favor or reduce cost, but it is inexcusable they withhold the information to tell the user exact how to fix if it so annoys them. There is a finite listing of the Top 100 annoyances of things that go wrong or trouble a RV owner, how hard could it be to list each and and the solution to resolve each aftermarket.

FWIW, it is my microwave table that make the most noises, we stuff it with towel because we are afraid we will break the glass by taking out and storing elsewhere.

The way I see it, if people would quit driving their RVs all of these problems would go away.

After using 5+ years I finally boiled something over & had to take that stove top all apart to clean, icky job. Maybe I don't understand the term about caulking but I wouldn't want to seal up & not be able to get under the burners to clean. I just put enough weight on top to hold the shaking down. Good luck.

Really, no metal detector, Bob? Wasn't sure about the name but yours sounded familiar.

Bob, only other forum I've been on was for old people around the world, interesting group but slowly dying (not a pun), and a Rialta group. Lots of good advice from the Rialta site. The dealer we bought from was "near the factory" a couple states away, so had to use locals to handle warranty work & ourselves for routine issues.

My son that does most repairs since warranty ran out on 4-Winds. He finds on internet, U-tube covers about any problem this one has had. Turned out a man in CA had same frig door issue & posted a pattern for the fix. Son copied & brought the piece over & it installed perfectly. I did find another shop with smart guys that did warranty work, my dealer's crew could not keep up with all the units they were selling.

Point being, so many parts & never enough time when vehicles are put together, so expect a few loose screws. I thought I was covered with auto club membership but those calls go to a "call center" that did not work out well on my last trip. That's another story. In spite of the many problems I am happy to own a motorhome, anxious for cooler weather to visit fav places in MO.

Ever stop to think that we visit with other campers but wouldn't dream of visiting with the couple next door in a motel?

Visit with them?? I don't even want to think about what they're doing in there!
