Default Floor squeak advise

2020 Roadtrek SS Agile with floorboards that squeak while driving. Worse in more humid/wet weather presumably because the boards expand with the moisture. Best i can tell there are two boards beneath the vinyl floor that are rubbing edge to edge. I can stand on the spot and make the floor squeak as well.

Dos anyone know of a solution besides tearing up and redoing the floor?!

I'd suggest drilling a fine hole(s) and injecting a glue.


stew mac . com has supplies for guitar builders including glues with various flow rates and dry times, syringes and needles for injecting glue. a common guitar repair might involve pulling a fret out and drilling a hole beneath to inject steam to loosen a joint or glue to tighten one- the work hidden when the fret is put back into place

You can lubricate squeaky floors using various substances, including talcum powder, graphite powder, or silicone spray. Maybe even WD40.
