Slide Out Wall Cracking

Keep an eye out at the bottom of your slide out wall. This just started this Spring. This is on a 2006 8314ss Rockwood. I can see the wall moving when I bring the slide out in after camping. I do not know what the problem is yet, I am about to take it apart.

FR cut you wall panel too long. Trim off about 1/8" from the bottom of the panel. The floor in new flush floor slideouts tends to "rise" a little bit when the slideout goes all the way out, thus buckling the wall when the floor comes up to meet it.

Thanks for the reply, I well take a look at It tomorrow.... I just hope that the trim around the slide out is not what's holding It all together

i have an 8313krss and i noticed miine doing this also. However i believe it has something to do how the trailer is sitting also. Because now i have moved it and put it back so it's sitting a little different and now when i pull the slide back in , it isnt buckling anymore.

I keep an eye on It every time I move the slide out, I don not notice any difference in the way the wall or slide out moves in any place I park It.
