It's legal here as well. But from what the dealer told me, its because of weight on the slide when in. So for your case Boosted, you are adding weight to the condition that we think caused my slide to come apart.

Actually, when the slide is pulled in, the slide floor is suspended over the trailer floor about 1 3/4 inches. It's this gap between the floors, that allows the slide floor to become separated from slide wall, when too much weight is applied to it.

You can check my pics here, to see where the suspended slide floor separated from the slide wall, and went all the way down to the trailer floor (which it's not supposed to do)

Spoke with Bob today and have to say Forest River is one of the best camper manufacturers out there. I feel both FR and my dealer went above and beyond helping to get my camper all fixed up!

Thanks again Bob!
