"Popping and cracking" sounds from underneath

I am hearing popping and cracking noises as I walk, coming from underneath the unit. Is this normal sounds for the 6 point level system? I didn't hear these noises with my "old school" trailers. And, it doesn't happen all the time. It seems to come and go with the different temperatures outside. Maybe it's just the nature of the beast? I do really like this 6 point auto level setup.

Cat hydraulic oil additive is suppose to help with that.

This should explain the hydraulic fluid additive

The is a TSB on the issue from Redwood. I notified the dealer when I took the coach in for some warrenty repair and they added the oil for free.

^If you guys have 2013 models that have done it, and it is under a TSB, and fixed under warranty, why isn't RW just adding a quart as they put these units together? Or, Lippert sending a quart with the units from the factory? This is what upsets me, when a company knows about a problem that happens over and over, and doesn't fix it.

Good point. Reminds me of the shower door leak. Unexplainable...
Only God can make a mid-production change order.
