We had a 2013 ERA 70A. The micro wave rattled. Taking the rotating glass turntable had no effect. I finally pulled the microwave out and discovered there is a metal "tunnel" that runs across the top to move air. It was loosely installed.
A few shims and screws fix it. I also discovered nearly every felt pad intended to stop cubard doors from rattling were not installed in the right place so I moved most and added a few.
We also had a resonance vibration in the sliding side door under certain road conditions (think tar strips). I took the door panel off and covered every place metal and panel could touch with weather stripping and also glued a wood strip to the inside of the interior panel to stop the vibration.
I also tightened every hinge and door handle snug but not over tight. Many were not snug. I always carry a 3ft vinyl hose to detect unwanted sounds when traveling. As DW drives, I put one end of the hose to my ear and move the other end to the suspected noise area. It is an old mechanics trick and will help you quickly pinpoint the noise source.
