wall frame by slide seperating

tried to search to see if anyone had this issue but couldn't find any. the wall section at to base next to the fridge slide appears to be coming apart. i first notice the piece of corner round at the base of the wall come off ( i have had several trim pieces a around the rig come off and have glued the back into place, as i did with this one) but then when i slid the slide out this weekend a piece of the wall at the bottom next to the slide broke off and exposed a piece of maybe 3/4 square tubing that seems to be moving in and out with the slide causing to wall to pull outwards when opening the slide and when the slide is pulled in it creates almost what appears to be a dent on the outside. not sure if the slide needs to be adjusted and causing the issue? i was going to cut a larger hole in the wall to see whats going on but thought i'd post here first for ideas. Thanks

Sounds to me like the wall was not built right and it's coming apart. The studs aren't connected to the floor. I hope I'm wrong. If someone thinks so please let us know. I'm not going to sell my 2011 HC any time soon.

2016, hope it is still under warranty and you can get it to your dealer ASAP.

Yup, my vote is to hope you have a warranty and can get it looked at real soon! That's my idea since it sounds like this is something I hope my rig never does since my rig is out of warranty.

Unfortunately it's out of warranty as i bought it mid 2015 when it first came out. looking at it more the slid looks a little crooked compared to the flooring, so maybe that is causing it to pull on the wall. i'll have to read up on adjusting the cables and hope it works before i open up the wall more. Thanks

you still can try the warranty route...get to a dealer who can push it.

another option would be to get the goshen rally and see a tech.
