under belly laying on axles

As I worked on the valves today, I noticed the black stuff the under belly is covered with it sitting on the axles. It is either sagging way too far or there is a tank broken loose!! Can someone look at their 29HFS and tell me how much clearance you have between axles and this black covering? Thanks! Wolf.

I went outside to measure the distance on mine and I discovered that my underbelly is sagging down as well.It is hitting the axles and coming apart at the back drivers side.It looks like this was glued to hold it up,will have to have a better look at it in the morning.Sorry that I cant help you.

I found the link (info) and that is exactly what mine is doing I guess I will fix it my self but what I may doo is use a square of plywood and a jack to hold it up while I put Stainless Steel flat bar across in several places on the outside of the plastic that way I want have to take it off and it should hold up. This was the wrong material to use for this application it was not designed for heat and wind it does stretch.
I will try to post pictures when I am done I think if I was to just add 2x2's under the material and then run screws through it it would continue to stretch.

I'm thinking 2x2s mounted inside the frame rails, and screwing into them. Only holding that cardboard up! Not my idea, but I think it'll work.

I raised the concern, but then went out of town. I didn't crawl under to see if a tank is pressing down on the cloroplast. Or, it is stretch and sag as other's have experienced. I will update as soon as I know. Thanks, Wolf
