2015 Forest River Vengeance Damage

Experiencing some bad factory defects throughout the life of this trailer since new. Got it narrowed down but wondering if anyone had dealt with this and what the resolution was.Click image for larger version

We had a diagonal crack on a previous unit years ago which was the result of frame damage, when they opened up the side wall there were breaks in the wall stud but after their fix it cracked again which turned out to be breaks in the pin box supports. Not trying to scare you but get a shop to open it up and see what you might need, don't stop at just the wall inspect the pin box area as well. Good luck and keep us posted.

Have you contacted FR? When i was at factory service (different line of FR) i did see units that were probably a few years old getting new side walls.

Seems a weld on the frame has broken loose.
