Just wondering if anyone else has had the same pucker factor I did, lol.
I do just hit the triangle piece backing into my driveway. I removed the sewer support, pushed waste pipe up till it stopped and drilled new hole in bracket. I gained an inch lol. She is a lower camper for sure!

Good question! Actually, no. Same load as usual.

Hey guys, we are throwing around the idea of selling our 288bhs due to us buying a new house, not out of state like i was hoping. Just thinking about it, so if any of you know of any friends that are looking for a great camper only used 3 times so far! Would be a good price with everything ive added! Hitch and all.

Counter moving away from wall

Hello all,
I have a 2014 Apex 288BHS and just returned from our July 4th camping trip. While cleaning the camper I noticed the sink counter top was pulled away from the wall about 1/2 inch from the edge by the sink to about where the gas burners begin. When I put the slide out, the counter was sucked tight to the wall again. Anyone experience this kind of movement?

Mine would drop a hair by the bread box side (left) i pre drilled a screw from underneath and up in to the side of the bread box. I only saw the gap while slide was in. Id check yours out underneath and see how its secured, maybe its pulled off wall or needs a better way to be attached.
Ill check mine out also and report back.

There is a wood strip underneath, i would pull it off load with pl construction adhesive and screw it back in.

Thanks Cableman

Thanks for the quick reply. I think I may have a bigger issue with the counter pulling away. I noticed I can see a floor seam the width of the coach right where the sofa and counter meet. The sofa side is a little bit lower and I think when the slide is in it drops slightly and pulls the counter off the wall. When the slide is out everything fits correctly. The floor does not feel soft or spongy anywhere. I looked for signs of water damage underneath the coach and didn't see anything. I'm not sure how the floor is constructed but if I stand at the rear of the sofa I can see a straight line going left to right and there is a small difference in height. Do you think it is just a floor seam or a bigger structural issue? I can find any pics of the floor construction.
