Never seen that but then again it doesn’t surprise me with the way they build RV’s now. However, since on your “new member” post I see it’s a 2022 model, I wouldn’t do anything to it and take it back to the dealer for repairs. If you try to do anything it might void the warranty. Also, you might want to add your make and model to your permanent signature at the bottom of your post. Go to User CP on top left and go to signature.

First if it is under warranty I would take it back and have them fix it.

Now if it were mine ---- It looks like the staples let go so I would put some good brand wood glue down the crack and then push it closed then with a brad/finish nail gun put in a row of finish nails. Clean up any glue that squished out. Then go to my local big box hardware store and get a wood putty that matched the wood and fill the nail head holes. Also if there is room put a few L brackets on the cushion side for reinforcement.

The choice is yours based on your ability and the time it would be in the shop. But then again if your done with it for the season let the dealer do it.

I agree with what dagst1 told you to do.
There has been a few on here that had basically the same thing happen. If I remember correctly there was quite a few L brackets used in the repairs.

Happened to us in our first year. Did have it repaired at a dealer, but as Lloyd references, took the seat cushion and plywood base off and went very heavy on the L brackets on the corners from the inside. No issues since...
