That is a question that needs more than a short post to answer.
If you have a rear bath model, it is more involved to repair than if you have a rear bedroom model.
You can find a lot of info here on the forum by doing a single-word search for "separation", "sag" and "rot".

Go camping. It will still be there when you get back. If you have a scissor jack, take it along and place it in the center of the rear bumper when you get set up. Raise the jack just enough to support the rear bumper. This will prevent the rear from sagging more when you walk into the bath. Empty the holding tank prior to making the return trip.

My trailer was towed from the East Coast to California with the rear street side support completely gone and it was fine. I would address the issue soon though there are plenty of threads that cover this. Use the search function in this thread, type "separation fix" and read.
