help..big problem

Hello, I found this forest river forum and hopefully this is the right place for this as i need some help.
I purchased a 2014 wildcat 327ck 5th wheel last summer here from my local dealer and they delivered it to me.it was awesome all summer,set up as a cottage more or less.when I went to close up for the end of season,the opposing slides came crashing together buckling a piece out of the floor and driving the l sofa back into the wall cracking it.It all happened so fast and I wasnít expecting it.I had to slide over the kitchen counter ,hold up the sofa piece to allow the dinette side slide to go under it to get it together. My dealer suggested waiting till spring to fix, so I did and they have had it for a couple of weeks now.
My problem is that there doesnít seem to be a solution for the dinette slide not crashing into the sofa. It is suppose to go under it,but wonít. they have now moved the wheels back,but the sofa now becomes a teeter totter. Not acceptable. The have repaired the wall and I havenít checked the floor but assume that is ok to. I have looked at the 15 model and it looks like the l sofa is shorter on that side now in pictures I have seen? Is that true or just the picture image? Is there a problem and that is the solution as it seems very logical to me?
Iím hoping for some guidance or a solution,please help..thank-you for listening

this is the same problem we are having with ours, its at the dealer now to see if they can resolve it, it took a chunk out of the dinette slide also, supposedly its due to the slides not being adjusted right. I will let you know how it turns out.
good luck.

I was told adjustments also, but that hasn't seemed to help. Good luck with yours as well

See if you guys can PM Wildcat Chris. He'll need your selling dealer, last 7 digits of your VIN and info about who you've been working with.

A lot of times, he can help with getting things sorted out.

My couch knocks the molding off the corner cabinet if your not careful . Dealer said the free moving couch wasn't a problem they were going to tackle.

My question is this, why are these sofas free moving, whats so wrong about attaching that back of them and putting wheels on the front edges of them, like the bed in some bedroom slides? looks to me like it would solve a lot of problems, Maybe wildcatchris can shed some light on it. but this is not the only camper that has a free moving sofa I have seen it on many campers by a lot of manufacturers.

Please do this -- I'll help if I can! I was out of town on my first vacation of 2014 (after a long RV show season this year!) and haven't been active on the board. Didn't realize my mailbox was full! I'll get it cleared out ASAP!

Welcome back Chris! Your return could not have come at a more opportune time! Hope you had a great vacation!
