Hi, I have a 2013 EC 950.  In 2019 I brought the unit back to the manufacturer in Yakima to remedy a problem that manifested itself in the top of the slide not going all the way in and more importantly the main floor rising up about an inch near the rear door when I retracted the slide, when the slide was extended the floor was flat.

A structural issue for sure….  The folks at Yakima effected an repair on the unit, but alas about 14 months after pick up the problem has  reared its ugly head again.  From what I can see, they installed aluminum braces in various places and I see the bottom of two carriage bolts extending out the bottom of my camper.  The repair work sheet is not specific at all.  Local shops say I should go back to the manufacturer as they would have a better handle of what is wrong.

Trouble is, Yakima is 1,100 miles away..

Anyone have any similar  floor rising slide issues?
Maybe. We are in the "exploration" phase with our 2004-05 EC850. The floor under the slide has sagged some, and there is a small crack in the side of the base unit nearby the fridge vent. The slide now sits, when closed, about 1" from the top of the base side, but is tight at the bottom. A very tiny amount of light is visible from the inside when closed at the front end of the slide.

Our Cappy is at the shop right now and hopefully within a few days I'll have a picture as to what they think. Fortunately, no water leaks in when it's closed (at least is hasn't yet and we just drove it through a couple of days of heavy rain). None leaks at all when open as it sits properly in position.

Of course, ours is an Intermountain and they are long gone, so any cost to repair is on us. Given what we've seen of new models I'm of a mind to pay for the repair vs. buying newer, but am still hoping that we can do both and upgrade regardless, if I can be convinced that current quality is generally better than what we saw in that post.
