Floor is sagging

My 1992 Adventurer pusher which I only bought last fall has given me many challenges so far and I've had lots of good advice from this forum. The latest is that the floor feels spongie from the top of the door entrance to about 8 feet towards the rear. I am on my second trip right now, unloaded the compartment under the door area and I see there is a sissor jack and piece of wood way back in a hard to reach area under the floor. Must have been a problem that my uncle had.(He has passed on and that's why I have the RV). There are some screws that I also found that look like they fell out from somewhere in the area.

My question is how do I get at this floor to find out what the problem is? Hard to access from below. Do I have to rip up the carpet etc? Has anyone had this problem? I have not called Winnebego yet.

Thanks in advance to all replies. If there is a spell check I don't know how or where to find it.

when you are in the EDIT Mode (writing a message or replying) look up to the right of the window and look for the following iceon: ABC√

It's exactly above the center row of smilies!

It will ask you to install ieSpell Check. It works very well, it's easy to install and it's simple to use.

From what I understand the floor will have to come up. It's from weathering over the years and there really isn't much that can be done other then just pulling the wood up and replacing it. I have to do this with my 74 Winnie. However, mine is due to a roof leak. Two things will kill a floor very quickly. Water and just moisture riot. If your in a high humidity area there just isn't much you can do. Plus the temp change over time will cause the floor to flex and it just gets weak. Now how you replace it is up to you. I am told the best and easiest way is to remove all the cabinets and stuff and do it wall to wall. Now this is on my 74 so I don't have a whole lot of electronics. However on yours it may be a different story. You can cut out the bad sections but you will have to make sure that you cut it to a joint to joint...
