How do I know if I have rear end seperation or rear end sag? Andy I downloaded your illustration from an earlier post on how to fix rear end sag I believe. Is this done with bathroom area taken out or is it possible to do fom the outside?

My frame has approx 3/4" of space from the framce to the shell.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks, Judd

Judd I think you have answered your own question by asking it. If you have 3/4" of space between the shell and the frame I would call that seperation. A sure fire way to test isd to get on the bumper and jump up and down and watch for movement between the shell and the bumper/frame.

Judd.

You described rear end separation, "BIG TIME" with the 3/4 of an inch.

1/8 of an inch, is way too much, let alone 3/4 inch.

Sorry, but you asked.

Andy

I measured last night and the seperation appears to be approx 1/2", not that thats any better but some. It appears that someone has attempted a fix in the past. I noticed this when I was removing the rear bumper and the holding area to clean it up and treat some rust issues. Someone had put grey silicone to close tyhe gap.

I am in the Dallas area, any susggestions with anyone that handles this type problem.

I have attatched some pics.

Thanks, Judd

Andy,
We have just come across this problem and realized we also have this issue on our 31' Sovereign. May I post a couple picture to get your opinion on the problem we actually have, so we are fixing it properly?
Thanks!
Candice

It is considerably easier to not confuse the issue, by finding out what the "exact" problem is, first.

Please post a photo ot two, clearly showing the separation. Also please show a photo or two of the area of the frame that is damaged.

From that, you will narrow down the possibles, so a straight forward answer can be suggested.

I will be glad to help you, but, the pictures are worth more than a thousand words.



Andy
