2016 Surveyor 291BHSS slide out wall separating from slide out floor. I can see daylig

I had traveled from upstate NY to Clarksville,Tenn. It was 1000 mile trip one way. Interstate 71 south out of Columbus Ohio was in bad shape and really beat the heck out of the camper. When I got to Tennessee we noticed the dinette seat on the right side was falling apart. I removed the cushions to see what was falling apart. The screws that hold the wood to the wall are coming out. Upon a little more inspection I found daylight showing between the out side slide out wall and the floor of the slide out. So I go out side and get under the slide out and see that almost all of the screws that held the wall to the floor are broken. I purchased this travel trailer new in April of 2016. I donít know if Forest River will be of any assistance in fixing this problem. The dealership I had purchased it from had proved from past warranty work that they have done more damage than good. I think I wld be able to take apart and repair this and replace with better screws that the factory used. My concern is that now that the wall has separated from the floor and if I repair it will water get up through this while I drive and rot out the wall and floor. It seems to me this is a good size wound to the structure of this travel trailer. Any advice would be appreciated. I am going to attach pictures from inside of the travel trailer.Click image for larger version

I have not had this same issue but have read in the past of others that have. They used longer, better screws and re-attached the wall and floor. Resealed and called it good. Might try a search and see if you can find them. I did have the front diamond plate rock deflector come loose at the bottom of my Lacrosse opening a large hole into the front of the trailer. I removed the 3 (in 8 feet) attaching screws that pulled through the diamond plate, reattached with 8 new screws and fender washers. Then I used Eternabond tape to seal it up.
Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. I am thinking of doing the same. I am just worried about not getting it sealed back up good enough and water getting up in there. I guess Iíll go for it and keep a close eye on it afterwards to make sure it is sealed up.
