floor on extention bowing

I have a 2014 crusader. i bought it used 2 years ago. My DW just pointed out to me that there is daylight showing when i sit at the table where the wall meets the floor. the floor is obviously flexing down. when i went outside to look at it there seems to be no damage. it looks like it must not have been screwed down right. i have attached photos. I'm wondering if i can remove the screws and add longer ones or what. Does anyone know how this floor is attached?

There is about a 1/2 reveal of the floorboard when no weight is on it. When weight is applied the whole board edge is exposed measuring about an inch. The Black is the plastic covered floorboard

Is the other side of the slide box the same? I think I would remove the plastic trim and see what is supporting the floor wall attachment.

This happened to my 2015 surveyor 274bhs 5th wheel also. I ended up using Gorilla glue and foam insulation to fill in the gap. I figured this is why I had so much cold coming it, and dust.

Have you tried to adjust the slide? Two adjustments on each rail, two lock nuts to loosen then you can raise or lower the slide.

Place a support under the "Floor/Wall" area,now remove all the screws from the side wall that go threw the alum trim piece into the Floor! Now see where the screws are "Missing the edge of the floor or the floor could be Rotten" lift up the black membrane and see! If there is "Good Wood" on either side of where the BAD screw location,Drill additional holes in the Alum trim piece and add More Screws! Youroo!!
