Back Wall coming Off

I spoke with another member about this problem, so thought I would share what I've learned. This is a 2014 330RLS. These are pictures of the method I and my son used to repair this disaster. I will gladly give the details of this repair if you are interested.

I'm guessing this is a Denali and the frame in the side walls broke?
Do you have pictures of the before and being repaired?

I see a piece of diamond plate bolted to the back of a camper. Vague threads are not helpful.

I'm guessing the diamond plate was added by you? Was the repair method you used the diamond plate? What brand is a 330RLS?

Hello Greg.
I have a 2012 Denali fifth wheel and the rear wall is pulled away from the side panel, similar to what you've had.
Of course my extended warranty does not cover structure damage even though the aluminum framing has sheared and broke loose from the rear wall. Now it is up to me to make the necessary repairs. I would be very interested in the details of the repairs you made, particularly on how you were able to align the rear wall evenly with the side panel and how you secured it in place.
V/R,
Derek Dunaj

We installed wood framing across the floor at the rear behind the couch and used the plate to bring the wall into alignment. There is also framing installed behind the side panels next to the couch to Catch the side plates. It is a Denali 330RLS built by Keystone.

What is vague about a complete set of photos? If you don't have this problem I guess you have no need for my info. But I have spoken to people who have rear wall structural problems, so I posted. Didn't do it just to get flak.
