Any comments would be appreciated. Thansk
Rear end seperation is when the rear bumper starts sagging, usually prevalent in rear bathroom units, where there is a lot of weight in rear of trailer. The undercarriage frame of the AS does not extend the whole length of the trailer, so when weight is bouncing in rear end, cause the floor and bumper to seperate from monocoque shell.
Search this subject all over this website, search sagging rear end or saggy bottom, drooping rear end, or simply rear end seperation and repair kit. The repair kit is innovative design by inland rv, I believe.
