the tech had some sort of service bulletin from FR (he said) that wanted him to measure the gap between the slide and the opening with it open. if it was more than ??? then there was a real problem and it had to measure the same top to bottom. (which it did) apparently mine was within the specs for repair which entailed larger and plenty of screws. i have seen in previous posts that large rivets are also added or have replaced the screws.
it sounds like yours does not have the proper backing for the fasteners to hold. i would try to get my hands on the FR bulletin and see what it says and go from there. for now, i keep my eye on my slide every time i run it out to make sure the trim and screws are tight. i would try to get FR to extend the warranty on this issue until you are satisfied. especially since it is a very common problem with many 3050 owners.
good luck!

It sounds as if the slide issue is still on going mine is a 2015 model my slide has always worked properly so far but it does look as the gap when closed is different but only the screw has given a problem so far mine came with rivets if this is on going after my year is up I expect FR to stick with me until it is resolved maybe Joshua will chime in

I fixed mine myself. Everywhere FR put a screw I added one above and one below about 1 inch away. Predrilled the holes. Don't think that there is any metal backing. Just the thickness of the fiberglass wall sheet! I used screws meant for partical board that are very aggressive thread so it would bite. Filled each hole I drilled with a silicone adhesive. Seems to have done the trick. Total cost................ approximately $5.00! I would like to think the factory has enough profit margin to incorporate this fix. Lol!

I have a large rivet above the screw and a small rivet below and to the inside of the screw I don't know what good it would do to put a screw in if it only bites the fiberglass I'm sure FR has a remedy I advised the dealer to contact Tlogan at FR I hope they did that I don't won't to spend any more time at the dealer than I have to and I know they would prefer not to ever see me again

I have the rivets as well. Did not do a damn thing. I originally had no rivets. (prior to FR replacing the entire side wall!) Believe it or not I had no problems with the flange separating with the old wall. It was just cut out of square.

So FR put in the rivets and redone it or your dealer with FR guidance redone and you still had to put in screws and silicone them in but yours works like it suppose now was it under warranty when your work was started

He's still with FR. And he still visits here a bit. But he has been promoted to be the GM of another division.
