i'm having this problem where the rear of my motorhome is dropping down. i can see where it's pulling the top of my slide-out frame away from the slide-out but it's still lined up at the bottom. i can also notice my rear windows are at an angle compared to the middle windows. please check out the photos i've posted.

has anyone experienced this? i'm guessing it's due to Fleetwood's "genius" idea to mount ALL the holding tanks and gas tank behind the rear axle. there is so much weight on the rear of these vehicles and because of this, i believe some other problems while driving the coach can occur. (see my other post regard "bouncing dashboard")




you can see where the body and slide-out frame is being pulled away from the slide-out


this is the front part of the slide-out from the inside - this is what CALIFORNIA roads do to your motorhome

I've linked your original thread in the Ford forum to the Fleetwood forum.

We'll close this thread, and keep it all in one thread, HERE.

Thanks.
