I have a 98 M Aire Diesel puller. The floor near the rear slideout rail is raising. Could the rail have come loose. This has been happening for quite some time. Getting worse with time. Any help?

untyed, welcome to iRV2.com. One thing I have learned is that anything is possible. I think that you should investigate this issue to find out and resolve before it gets any worse.

untyed welcome to irv2.
With your slide in get on floor with flashlite and take a look at the roller on that end.
The roller maybe cracked or off the pin mounting bracket.
If it is you will have to fix with new one or remount braket. You will have to lift slide with bar and block up to get room to work . Move the slide out and stop so its not closed in recess of side wall.
If you have a good dealer maybe they can help.
Is your floor a rug or tile where roller rests on floor.

What part of the country are you in? I have seen this in a number of coaches that have been brought down from the Northern States to be sold here in Florida. It has usually been a cross member that got overloaded as the rest of the substructure was weakened from road salt damage so it started to crack and sag leaving a hump in the floor. This has usually been just behind the front axel or in front of or behind the rear axel. If it has been getting progressively worse don't drive the coach or activate the slide until you get this checked out and repaired.

On one coach that I was looking at they had to jack up the rear of the coach by the bin frames to take the weight of the body shell off the truck chassis and then slide in new cross members in the basement above the chassis rails.

You don't want to wait on this as if it is rust damage you could end up having the coach drop to the ground if the affected frame member(s) fails completely.

As Neil has said your sub metal superstructure has welds affective by road salts they need to be reinforced, sounds like your sidewalls with roof weight is forcing sidewalls to drop beyond the original built floor level.
