Cheap Handling Fix- Side Wall Failure

I was wondering how many people with side wall bolt failure have done cheap handling fix? I am not saying that the CHF is the reason for failure just maybe. My MH was fine until I did CHF. Miles before fix 14,000. Miles after fix 2,000.

Look at it this way before the CHF your camper flexed more than it does now so the screws were already on there way out.

We're just the opposite
2K before CHF
14K after CHF
No sidewall trouble

We drive 50 miles per yr X 4 on a washboard gravel road, last yr the fastest we could drive was 15mph, this yr a little better...25 mph, vibrates SO BAD stuff falls, rattles, bangs etc.

We did the CHF back in 2012 on our 378TS and now have over 42,000 miles and no side wall issues here.

Did CHF on our 2015 364TS. Within the first hour it began a loud clunk when I turned in either direction. Big rig alignment shop said this wasn't the first GT he'd seen with the same problem. Sway bar was hitting frame in turns. When we put the linkage bolt back in the forward position, the problem was solved.

What is Side Wall Failure. I get the CHF which I plan on doing when I get our 328tsf out of winter storage. I'm all about preventive maintenance and leaning on the side of caution.

Thanks...
