Bed End issue Rockwood HW296

I just purchased this camper on Thursday, I'm camping in Maine.
My wife and Dog were on the back bed and went to get up, and left back bed pole fell off the back on to the ground.

Upon putting the bed pole back on I noticed the plywood raises up off the pole.
only the 1st quarter of plywood touches pole, the rest doesn't. The pole pulls right out of the slot it sits in.
Any suggestion's on what do.
Anybody else have a 2010 HW296 have this issue?

I had a 2014 model and there were 3 different slots to put the bar in at the bumper. Does yours have 3 slots or just one? If it has 3 slots try a higher slot to raise the end of the bar.

Yes already tried that, the plywood is touching at the backend but about a .25 of the way towards the front it starts separating from the support.
The slot on top that you hook the support into is a big gap which allows it to pop out of.

Make sure the correct supports are in place.........white tips go in the front. Got a pic of the setup?

That sounds much like our 276. The support bar touches the bottom of the bed towards outer portion, maybe 25 percent of it, the rest is not touching. I presume that when the bed is occupied, they touch.n will have to look next outing.

I am not totally sure I fully understand how you have the poles set up so I will just start with some basic items.

As was mentioned, the white pole ends are intended for the front.

The black pole ends are intended for the rear.

When you place them, you have to ensure that the top pole "hooks" into the wall. This is very important as it might slip out.

The height adjustment is then done on the rear bumper. To achieve the highest position possible you would simply place it on the highest slot on the rear bumper.

Other than all the above, there really is nothing else.

Sorry this is not working out. If you can take a quick pic in the morning and post it might help a bit.

I am jealous your in Maine. I love that state!

Vin.

Here is my problem look at the pics the plywood is not touching the bedend supports, both front beds and back. sorry I took so long having a blast in Maine. We went to the drive in at Bridgeton Twin Drive in that was great. Whenni get home I'm calling forest river about this issue.
