ID:	194548 weekend I noticed the wall is pulling away. Anyone know why this is happening? Iím thinking the wheel they installed is a 1/4 inch too high. Or we are exceeding the weight capacity on the king bed. Does anyone know the weight capacity? Click image for larger version

the bed has about a 1000 lb weight limit. It should easily hold two adults. since this is a 2019 and you are the original owner (yes?) - i would be taking it back to the dealer. I would also be sending pictures to Rockwood and seeing what they have to say. it looks like you are missing some bracing.
(i had front wall flex on my HW277 - but it did not show up for about 5 years - well out of warranty and it may have gotten worse due to a water leak we had, but I had bracing added and it helped.)

Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, I think something is going wrong at the factory judging by your camper and mine. Disappointing.

How does the exterior of the wall look, broken caulking? That looks awful. I'd let the factory handle this as the wall may need to be rebuilt.

Please let us know what failed, as that'll likely happen to mine as well.
