Chirping at wheel

Heading out in the morning to Pigeon Forge TN. Loading Cougar fifth wheel with groceries. Camper rocks back and forth while walking inside, I hear a chirping sound from underneath. Actually sounds like itís coming from one of the wheels or axle area. Never noticed it before. Camper not hooked to truck. Just sitting in storage facility with wheel chocked. Anything I need to be concerned about? Used camper about 4 weeks ago, didnít notice anything. I will ride with windows down starting out in the morning to see if I hear anything going down road. Any ideas?

Could be the shackles. Inspect the suspension before you pull it out of storage.

Age/model of trailer? Use it has seen? Suspension? Particulars are really helpful when asked to "guess". Busted springs? Broken shackle? The list is endless for a squeak.

Depending on the temperature and humidity, the floor of our TT will squeak in one particular area as I walk around. Drives me nuts. (new 2020 model)

I would guess the shackles/bushings on the axles. The bushings are just plastic from the factory if they have not been upgraded yet.

Could be the leaf springs could use some dry lube in between them...

I had one that did that. It was the brake shoe or magnet barely touching the drum. The wheel would ever so slightly rock front to back, when walking around inside.

Just update on issue. I got some dry lube sprayed on leaf springs. Went to Pigeon Forge for 5 nights. Got home today, never heard chirp to whole time I was gone. Donít know if lube was issue or not, but it was quiet. May have found a issue with a slide. Will make different post on it. Thanks for the help!
