Hg 356qb wall separation

Anyone had the wall between the living and bunk room pull away from the side wall?

The off door side now has about a 1" gap where both walls came together, best i can feel is a single screw was holding the center of the stud. How much of a pain is it to remove the wall panels?

Are you sure the sidewall hasn't moved?
How old it the unit?
Can you post pics of the separation?

Removing the partition paneling isn't too much of a problem as it's stapled on. However, the chance of tearing it when removing it is probable. Use a flat pry bar and it'll help.

Mine hasn't gapped. I hope it is not the outer wall.

When you're taking the pictures, take one looking straight down the side from front to back or vise-versa. That may let us see if it looks bowed out.

You may want to take a straight edge and hold it against the sidewall inside and out and see if it's bowed.

Hopefully it isn't and you'll just need to resecure the stud.

Here are the pictures, not the best but we were in a hurry. I put a level to the side wall and it appears straight.

If the wall is straight, then just reattaching the partition is probably all you need to do.

Let us know how that goes.

I would run a straight edge, maybe a 4' level on the wall and see if it is bowed out. If so and you are out of warranty, call forest river and let them know what's going on and see if they will help you out. Couldn't hurt.

Alright, here are some updated pics, it appears the wall has separated more, and possibly starting on the other side of the slide as well now. When slides pull in the walls appear flush. A 4 foot level on the inside of exterior wall shows a gap in center of level, hard to tell on exterior.

Would forest river consider this a warranty issue although i am out?
