The floor of the slide has separated from the vertical side . As a result the floor has a tear in it and there is a gap 3/4" between the wall and floor.Now the issue is ,How to repair it and is this a mfg issue?
I can't tell you how to repair it I've never experienced that problem with our rig. I do think a person would have to get it pulled back together and then a pretty wide piece of light angle put in place over the problem corner and glued and screwed down.
As far as it being a mfg. issue, it might be. Simply because they didn't make it strong enough to withstand all that happens to it.
Myself, I think the floor in the slides get busted out like that from people using the slide when it's retracted. I can't prove or verify that. I just know of different ones here on the forum over the years that said they had it happen to them.
So far we have been lucky maybe? I don't know. I just know that when I first heard of the issue I made a set of boards that I place under the leading edge of the slide when its retracted. Like I stated previously, we do use our slide when it's retracted, and so far no problems.
Knock on wood!! Don't want to jinx myself.
