I believe a structural issue like this should be covered. I have started a complaint with the NHTSA which I am still waiting for them to edit the complaint.... they entered the information incorrect. Forest River doesn't want to take responsibility for the issues with my coach. Now it appears that the passengers side is starting to do the same thing. What's to say the bolts around the entire coach are not breaking??

I have a 2009 Georgetown GT and this started happening on the driver side. I took it to Crestview RV in Georgetown, Texas and they said it was under warranty due to it being a structural issue. They repaired the coach per Forest River. We drove to California during Christmas time and within 200 miles I started hearing squeaking and cracking and the driver side wall is now moving again. So back to Crestview we go and now they are saying it wasn't originally covered under warranty due to me being a second owner and the age of the coach. I don't understand how this is not a safety recall??

Every one that has had a problem with the bolts breaking should file a complaint with the NHTSA. They will investigate the problem and hopefully issue a recall.

Is there any more developments with the side wall issues? The thread has been quiet. Are they any complaints with the new units and has FR responded to any past issues with the wall ?

New member, first post. 2008 Georgetown purchased new in 2010. I have experienced the side wall bolt shear on our Georgetown also. I read with interest all the previous posts. Long story short, had a nerve racking slow trip home with the right front wall moving and a opening to the road letting cold air in, I checked the left side and found a few loose screws and one broken. Contacted FR and in process to get a resolution to the problem. Have also filed a complaint with NHTSA.
The post from ERIC52 is a very good repair. The screws used by FR seem awful small for the job.
Will let you know how it works out.
