Spongy floor

Back from my first trip, had to replace leaking toilet flush valve. WHY do they insist on putting carpet in bathrooms AND laying it UNDER the walls? Anyway, the plywood is not rotten, just the top ply has de-laminated. Any suggestions?

When they build the unit, the carpet goes down and then the walls and cabinets are set in. If the wood underneath is really dry, it needs to be sealed and you may have to add a layer above to level enough for tile or vinyl... If that wood is soft it won't get any better with time...

It won't heal itself, rip up the floor and lay down new wood.

Do you have a Fleetwood MH? I had a '96 Pace Arrow and thought maybe my bathroom and kitchen floor had some rot. I pulled all of the old tile off the floors and then proceeded to the plywood. There was no rot but a 2' span with no support anyplace. The flooring was actually 15/64, which is less than 1/4" I trimmed as close to the walls as possible with my small circular saw added a support and some foam for sound deadening. When I put new flooring in I used 3/8" marine plywood. There was no give to anything anymore. We also redid the entire inside with new upholstering, carpet and flooring with laminate. It looked great, ran great, and we really enjoyed it until we found the Newmar the next year. It was eassier to sell with all of the red4ecorating though.

Spongy floor.

Got the carpet out, will cut and peel the top layer, sand and water-proof glue it back. I have some really high tech stuff I used on my outside decks on the house, will put that on top then sheet vinyl. Will post pics as I go along. Thanks everyone.
