Anybody else have this happen to them?
Is this what your's looked like?

If you call coach net they can let you talk to a tech or schedule one to come to you. Or call Forest River customer service and they may be able to walk you through it.

Thanks for the suggestion but mine has been fixed ( thats what it looked like before repair) in the end I had to have the complete front slide gear tower ( thats what is coming away from the body) replaced , thankfully it was done under warranty. Good luck with yours

Our was at the top. Forest River told us too call a dealer ASAP and they will add support brackets at no charge to us.

What I'm curious about and have never gotten an answer to is: has FR ever made any product improvements to correct this problem in future production?
Joshua or Brian ????

I'm thinking that's why they told me too have the slide support ordered and installed... my 2015 3051s doesn't have them but the 2016 does and others will.

Have not heard about any supports either. Would like to hear the full story and if they are now standard on 3050/3051.

Your photo got me thinking about my slide. So I checked and no, it wasn't coming off of the wall of the RV like your photo - but there was one screw sticking way out. I tightened it and sure enough EVERY SINGLE SCREW was a little loose and needed tightening. And, this was on both ends of the single slide on the 3051.

I'm sure glad I saw your post.

Check your slide folks.
