Blue Ridge Front Frame Issue

We purchased a 2015 3025RL in Feb and have pulled it approximately 6,500 miles, after last trip I noticed that the bedroom sliding closet door would not mount on the securing latch, I noticed that the header on the closet frame had dropped. I looked up in the adjacent storage area and noticed that the interior ceiling had pulled away from the woodwork frame, also noticed sawdust like material on the shelves. I took it to the dealer and they observed from the inside while the camper was lifted & lowered, they told me that there was excessive flexing that was causing the issues.

They told me that they had seen this before and that Forest River would probably send out factory reps and welders to beef up the fifth wheel assembly. Has anyone else experienced this issue and if so did the factory fix remedy the problem?

Not familiar with Blue Ridge, however I know several Heartland units had a similar problem. My Big Horn has exhibited a similar issue with indications of excessive flexing in that area. My unit is now in a permanent site so no longer towing. Heartland uses Lippert frames. Go on heartland site, used to be lots of reading.
