Angry Sliding Floor

I was going over the used 2008 Cherokee 30L befor I took it home and as I was pulling the slide in I saw that the left wall as you face the room was lifting up off the floor about 1.5"! I looked under the wall and saw that the four or five screws coming from the wall into the floor had been pulled out of the floor. The dealer said that walking on the floor with the slide in puts alot of force on the floor and thats what caused the floor and wall to fall apart. Has anyone had this happen befor? The dealer said they would fix but I an not sure if i still want the camper even after they fix it.

The dealer is right, walking on the slide while it's in does put a lot of strain on it. And yes, I've seen it happen before and it is repairable, just look over it realy close to make sure they did a good job fixing it.

Just curious, how does walking on the slide while it is IN put a strain on it? I briefly have to walk on mine frequently to check cabinets before moving the slide in or out and to secure it for travel.

Slide

The slide floor sits up off the floor of the camper when it is all the way in. There is no support under the slide floor at thet point. It may be diffrent on your camper.
