We own a Salem CruiseLite and yes, our bed board was also nailed shut with the freshwater tank located below. I had to remove the drywall screws to get to ours so we could install an actuater tank next to the pump. Ours hasn't collapsed yet, but I attend to rebuild it and extend the plywood sheet out to where the cheap mattress doesn't sag at the foot. We put a topper pad on top and is much more comfortable.
As having one for over a year now, the next thing you CruiseLite owners will experience is the collapse of your dinnette benches. They are built as bad and as cheap as the bed frame. We will remove them this winter and replace with free standing chairs and table. Other than that, we haven't had too many more problems since the toilet paper holder fell off the wall from the weight of the toilet paper!!
