Exterior wall failure

05 keystone 24 1-slide
The exterior wall with the slide has dropped 1-1/2. The ceiling has separated and cracked at interior wall connections. The floor slopes off toward the wall and the slide has dropped so low I had to remove the interior trim to operate the slide.

How do I fix this?

You may want to ask this question on the Keystone owners forum. Depending on the type construction you have I'd guess there are some broken welds or maybe some rotten wall supports. Good luck.

Probably the best solution is to trade it in for a newer unit if you can afford to take the financial hit. Other brands have better construction but they cost more.

Good luck. My 2016 outdoors RV. The floor started doing the same thing, was only at a half inch so far, and has been at the manufacturer for 4 weeks still getting fixed, under warranty. It was just poor structure.
