Frame support bending on Northpoint 377. Anyone else?

Below the kitchen slide/TV on my 2016 Northpoint 377, the frame floor support extensions (not sure what they are called) are bending like crazy. Inside we recently started noticing the floor sloping down the far 10 inches on that side, and now I know why. Any 377 owners out there? Can you go check yours under the kitchen slide? Maybe even add a pic. Anybody know what those supports are called? Any experience with this? We got this rig in September 2015. It's my 13 RV over the years, but this problem is a new one for me. THANKS in advance!

My slide is the same as yours and I noticed one support like that a while ago. I just thought it hit something and was bent at the factory. Maybe not

Hard to see the bend in my picture, but it looks exactly like your second pic.

AZFBTS looks the same and he has a water damaged floor. How is your floor under the slide

Just looked at mine. Same thing-bent- but I haven't noticed any floor issues--yet. Rock- is yours bent? Oh Rock, by the way, snow in Lake Placid over the weekend!

I haven't noticed any problems with my floor.
How is AZ's water damage and the bent support related?

Is this only happening to units with the heavier residential fridge? Or is it also happening to those with gas/elec fridges?

I have the residential fridge, but it isn't above that perticular support and the supports are under the main floor, not the slide floor. Even if the slide was closed, it would have to bend the heck out of the slide floor before it could start bending the main floor to actually bend the support. And if it did then the Schwintek would be binding.
That's why I thought mine was just bent by accident at the factory. Interesting though.

I looked at mine to see if I had a similar problem but mine was okay.

The floor gives support to the slide when open. His floor has water damage and he said u can see it kind of bubbling the vinyl. So if the wood is that wet when open it is bending down and not supporting the weight and buckling that little support. He sent me pics using a moisture meter at floor bottom by support and it maxed the meter out. That is why I am being annal and sealing every seam, staple and screw in the wheel well. Hopefully he will add to this thread. His is at the dealer for roof and his last reply was waiting on what is going on with the main floor
