Ive got a very similar situation with my slide floor. I have a 2007 F30RES and bought it during the autumn with it on a pitch, slide was out and all hooked up. We used it 4 weekends before moving it and never noticed any problems but when I tried to bring the slide room in it tilted out at the top and I thought it was going to fall out... Luckily I managed to pull the top of the slide in from the inside and we got it closed up.
Took the unit to a repair shop (Im in the UK by the way, so no dealership to speak of) and the guys there were very knowledgeable, told me they had seen a few like this and that the ply floor had basically come away from the stud walls at the side of the slide room (due to it being left on a pitch for many months with the slide out). Its been in their repair shop waiting its turn for work but the plan is to dry it out thoroughly, inject some sealer, then use long screws to pull that floor up to the wooden batons at the bottom of the side walls. MrMusic, is that what youre showing on your photos?
Ive attached a couple pics which you can see the ply floor sagging out of the bottom of the slide room. The pics werent of that fault particularly as I didnt know I had it at the time...
Im really praying these guys can fix it. It also has a leak on the back wall (not inside the trailer) and so that needs work too. If only I had known what I was looking at when I bought it... We still love it though and really hope it can be repaired!

Sorry for the delay in my answer. The problem in mine was that a little water was sucked into the end of the plywood that extends down from the room at the ends. That caused the staples to release and the extra heavy Flexsteel sofa made the floor sag. I crawled underneath and screwed that floor back up to the aluminum frame. I recaulked the exposed plywood ends and I put an adjustable stand under that section of floor when the slider is out. In my humble opinion, there should have been aluminum angle attached to those areas of the sliders. My 5th wheel is going back to the factory to fix this issue and a roof issue. I am also thinking of removing this very heavy sofabed and putting in it's place a lighter sofa only. If you want to get hold of me easier my email address is
