Interior stationary wall moves while driving

44' Monaco Diplomat with full wall slide. 2 bathrooms. Problem is the wall between the front bathroom and the bedroom does not appear to be anchored to the floor. It will work it's way away from the door and allow the door to come open and start swinging back and forth. I can straighten the wall by pushing it back to its proper location but it is only temporary until we start moving again. Any ideas for a repair?

If this is an interior wall then it could be something as simple as nailing or screwing the wood base plate back to the floor. You need to make sure the wall is level / straight before reattaching to the floor. You will also need to look for any wires or pipes that could be in the way before reattaching, as you do not want to put holes in any supply lines water, electric, etc.

If I am reading your post wrong and it is an exterior wall then this is a major issue as they are welded structures and that would be a really big issue to fix.

If your motorhome is in the minority and has trim at the floor, you have it made. Remove a couple of feet of trim and screw the wall into the floor. Replace the trim and you are done. If there is no trim, install a couple of screws as far down on the wall as you can go. If you don't like the results. Install trim at the bottom of the wall to cover the screws.

Sounds like a job for a Lille Liquid Nails or similar product. No risk of driving a screw into something under the floor.
