The first one as you can see the fender sit below the top of the tire, the second one is with the jacks down and it show where the tire and the fender should actually sit in relation to each other. You can see also where the crack form along the fender when the tire hit the lip of the fender.

Iggy may be on to something and I also think it has to do with your shock compressed which is causing your sag. If you can get under the rig and take some pictures of your springs and shock on the sag side and then take pictures of the good side. That my help us trouble shoot.

Kind of agree with Iggy on this. It sounds like a bad shock absorber. Curious to see what the diagnosis is.

Suspension?

Georgetown side wall bolts sheared off- and a fix!
The shocks don't effect the height. The leaf springs control the height. Check out the thread above this is a common problem with FR products the sidewall bolts break mine broke at 11,000 miles.

Shocks could effect height as If they are dual action gas shock. Both up and down and do take some weight off the leaf springs.
Hopefully he will find out what went wrong soon.

Does your unit have a kneeling feature when you setup at a site? (Coach drops down closer to ground for easier access) If so, perhaps it didn't automatically return to drive height when you started it up to leave the site.

Ramair I am all set up with the jacks down therefore not much weight on the springs or chocks. I don't think it would tell us anything right?
