Rear End Bond?

We have a 2016 3825 FL Cardinal. I was looking at the area on rear to decide if a washing machine was worth giving up closet space. When I put my hand on the wall, it felt like there was nothing behind the "paneling". Outside on the rear, I could push the outside too. Should the rear part be bonded like the sides? Our warranty runs out the end of August.

Howdy The Newsoms, I'm no expert on this, but it is my understanding the rear wall is constructed of the aluminum framing, insulated, (not bonded), electrical wiring installed, and then the "rear fiberglass cap" is installed to cover this area, but is not bonded to the rear wall. I think you should get a "hollow" sound if tapping on this. The front cap should be similar, but maybe someone from Forest River could weigh-in on this question and explain in more detail.

Thanks for the reply. Glad it wasn't something left undone.
