Newmar Ventana 2020 half bath wall moves

We have a 2020 Ventana 4369 and noticed the half bath door was swinging open. The dealer added a catch plate and that solved the problem for a little while. However now it does not latch again. The problem is that the gap between the door and the wall was larger than before.
Further investigation we saw the wall has moved at the bottom forward about an inch.
I can push the wall back so the door stays closed but after a drive the wall moves again creating the large gap.
Does anyone seen this problem and how to solve it?

I would pull/pry back the molding, where you can at the base of the wall, set it in the correct position and then drive a couple of drywall screws through the wall into the floor.

Other option....if the molding can be pulled back, you could push the wall out of place, install an "L" bracket into the floor and then push the wall back and secure it to the bracket.

Lastly, construction glue could be forced under the wall and may be strong enough to hold it in position.

(I oriented your photos)

It looks like the wall is sitting on top of the tile. If so, you are not going to be able to screw through the tile - maybe through the grout line.

Construction adhesive may be your only option.

I think on a coach this recent, I'd call Newmar and find out if they have seen this before and what they suggest for the fix. There could be more going on than is apparent.

This ensures that either you fix it correct or the repair shop you choose fixes it correct.

Thank you for orienting the photos they rotated when I uploaded them. It will be difficult to drive some screws in there since it is on the tiles. Think construction glue is the only option. Just it is quite tight to the floor and hoping can get it underneath it.

Wrote to Newmar to see what they suggest.

I would pull the door jam off so that you can see how it was secured originally. Something at the floor line broke, like a screw or nail and that has allowed for the wall to shift. You will need apply construction adhesive under the framing at the floor. Not just next to it. If you get the jam removed, send pictures of that and I can give you some more advise on how to proceed. Other than contacting, NIRVC for them to assist with the repair.

You can still drill the tiles with a small/long concrete drill bit, which will then allow you to bite into the subfloor.

Silicone is a pretty tough product when used correctly. Find a tube of brown silicone and run a bead on both sides of the wall after forcing some construction adhesive under it. Smooth the silicone with your finger and it won't be noticeable with the brown wall and tile. If it's placed on both sides, it will secure the wall.
