THOR #1078
2015 Challenger 37KT structural issue

We have an issue with the drivers side wall movement. First noticed the fender had pulled away at the back next to the first basement door and broken the flange. Next we were lowering the bunk and a piece of the black plastic that covers the cable opening broke on the drivers side. Also the wall below the window on drivers side is now about 1/2" away from the dash and broke off a piece of the dash panel that attaches to the wall with a screw. I have tried to check all around the area of where the movement has occurred and have found nothing that is obvious.
Has anyone had any experience with this issue or have any suggestions on what the problem might be? Also is there any type of diagram available showing the attachment points from the house to the chassis and how the walls are braced?

I havenít seen anything like that or read of any others here. Have you tried a search here and on Google? This sounds like a real pain!

You might want to give Thor a call and ask for the construction drawings (and, maybe when the next appointment is available in Wakarusa--factory service).
