More trouble with the TT, need some suggestions

Getting the travel trailer ready to move, and put the slide in....noticed, once the slide was in that it on one side, at the bottom, the floor has separated from the wall...Looks like some previous owner had put some screws up through from the bottom, and they are just sticking up now.... What would be the best way to fix this? I think that for now, when using the slide, we will brace it up from the bottom.....Any suggestions would be helpful.

No suggestion on the best way to fix it because I don't know what the problem is.. However I can suggest a "Path to knowledge"

Do a complete inspection of the affected area and the areas just around it, See if you can figure out WHY it is happening, Fix that first,, Then the rest should be easy.

Home is where I park it!

Well, the obvious problem is that the floor of the slide should not be separating from the wall of the slide....Seems to me, that at one time, there must have been a leak, causing moisture to make the wood on the foor and wall to become weakened...thus releasing the connection....and the floor of the slide to drop....When the slide is out, it pinches the floor and wall together, so it was not noticeable.... I will try to get some pictures within the next few days to give a visual account of what is going on......I appreciate the responses...
