Help. Coach and cab separating?

I have a 2009 Seneca and have noticed a gap of about 1/4 inch where the coach meets the cab. Itís worse on the passenger side. The sealant has separated there as well. I am attaching a couple of photos. Iím concerned about it but have no earthly idea whatís caused it nor do I have any idea if this is a major disaster or not. Also, on my last trip I noticed a random knocking noise coming from that same area while I was driving. Has anyone seen this and if so what am I dealing with?

We are having the exact same issue with our 2018. They have tried to repair it twice. Now all for corners of the coach are loosening which is resulting in the whole thing tweaking and the main slide is now clicking and leaving grease on the carpet. I was wondering if there was anyone else with this issue. Could this be a chronic problem with these models?
I’m afraid it will never be right.
Trying to upload video of load knocking and show separation as we go down the road.

I would never expect that from a 2018 model...wow. Yes I do have some creeks and squeaks going on too. Functionally it still is a great unit and we camp in it all the time....but I know there is an issue in that area-I just donít know how big of an issue it ultimately is. Iím way out of warranty since itís 10 years old...so Iím not overly anxious to spend huge amounts of cash on a repair that may or may not work.

Ours is in the shop now...our warranty ends this month. I’m hoping they don’t put a quick fix on it. I am concerned that it will never be right again. We love it but will seriously consider getting rid of it due to concerns of major repairs down the road. Also dealing with camping world is the WORST!

I had an 08 and am still on another forum that has multiple KODIAK owners and you are the first who I have ever heard with that issue.

go here and post your question.

Yes please if you find out anything please post. Iíve got an RV body shop type place near me Iím gonna show pics to and see if they have any experience with this. I saw a thread somewhere through google where a guy had the same issue and fixed it on his own but looked like he did a little more surgery than my limited abilities would allow.
