Bent frame on 36 qbok

The frame on my 36qbok has bent where the center spring hanger attaches and forest river has denied a warranty claim saying it was collision. Click image for larger version

I would be reporting this to https://www.google.ca/search?client=...administration
if it was not caused by a collision and has only seen normal use, remember these units may be made light but they must be safe to be allowed on our highways.
Also call your insurance.

Already called the insurance because of what forest river said and they denied the claim. We didn't hit anything that I know of. We were on some rough roads with potholes right before we started having problems.

What problems did you have to make you realize the frame was bent.

When the slide wouldn't go out and the axle had shifted to one side.

Now I have a $50k paper weight. They are telling me it is totaled and no way to fix it. This is the last forest river product I will ever buy and will not recommend it to anyone else.

But you don't think the potholes contributed/caused to the problem?

Potholes are a fact of life. If a vehicle designed specifically to travel can't handle potholes then there is something really wrong here. Now I need to go look at mine to see if that is why it leans to the left.

Insurance saying it wasn't from an accident and the manufacturer saying it was, nobody wants to pay........ I would be livid to say the least.

The last frame on a 36qbok I seen like that was found to be overloaded.
But it looks like a hard hit nonetheless
