Loud rattle under fridge

Hi everyone. Just joined. We bought a 2008 Winn Adventurer 35A. Love it. Took it on only one trip so far. Zion, Brice, 4 Corners, Monument Valley, and Grand Canyon. We've only got one problem. After the engine is warmed up. and with a cross wind, there is a LOUD rattle coming from under the 4 door frig. Lioke metal on metal or loose exhaust. Any help out there?

I am happy to welcome you aboard, but can't help too much with your rattle problem. You could probably get your answer in the Winn specific threads.

Becken63,


Welcome to the forum. Just keep asking and someone will be able to help. Try the vintage rig forum too, lots of knowledgeable people there about older rigs.


Good luck and enjoy! Lynne

Welcome to the forum! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Sounds like you better let that fridge installation guy out from under the fridge!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome to the forum.

You might check the refer's roof vent since it only happens when you have a strong cross wind. I'd check to see if part of it is coming loose and the wind is causing it to rattle and you here it there.

You might also check the exterior access door and the heat pipe for being loose and that the increase in air flow due to the increase in vaccuum (x-wind over roof vent) is making a loose part to rattle.

I guess what I'm saying is check these items for being loose. Good luck, hope you find it.

Welcome! Good luck with finding your rattle. I'm sure that someone will have an idea of what's going on.

Glad you found us. Please post your signature. This can be done through the USER CP (Control Panel). This helps us to help you more easily. As others have suggested, post your question on the Winnebago "Owners Forum" found under that heading. Here is the direct link: Winnebago Industries Owner's Forum - iRV2 Forums

Do you have a access door on the outside behind the frig? It might be worth a look see.

Happy new year and many happy trails.

Rick Y

Loud rattle under fridge...

I assume your fridge is one of the Norcold models? That being the case, when we pulled ours out, I was very impressed with the amount of mounting hardware inside the refrigerator cabinet (most of it in the lower wall). There was a bracket on each of the lower left and right rear, as well as a couple across the backside. There was another one at the top of the fridge. All of these bolt the MH to the actual fridge (and/or to another piece of hardware) and are pretty hefty steel. They could be culprits in creating the "loud rattle."

My hunch is that you have wind blowing in the lower (or upper, or both) outside vents and that is moving/vibrating some of that metal mounting hardware. If it is truly a "loud rattle" under the fridge then I don't think the rattle would be coming from the actual fridge -- the fridge components are lighter weight metal and many are covered with insulation -- not likely to make a "loud rattle" in my opinion.

I'd start by doing a poke-and-prod inspection from one/both of the two outside access points. I'd start with the lower access point and try to replicate the "loud rattle" with a poker of some kind. Make sure the MH is parked first, tho! LOL!

Here is a picture of what the back of my Norcold looks like (it's a 1201LRIM). Sorry that I don't have any pictures of the mounting hardware -- that's still in the MH holding in the new fridge!

Keep us posted on what you find!
