I have a 2000 Coachmen Travel Trailer, Futura.

The flooring is discoloring is patches. It started in the bathroom and each year it is moving out into the kitchen.

I have two pictures, is there a way to attach pictures here without already having them on a webpage?

Welcome to IRV2,
If it is discoloring across the area in a line more or less, I don't have a answer. If in areas that may be round or rectangular, some rubber backed rugs are guilty of discoloring some types of floor tile.

Best,

This is also a potiential water leak issue. The discoloration could actually be mold or mildew leaching through. Might want to find a place inside a cabinet that has the same issue and cut and pull up the flooring to see what is going on under it.

When we bought our 5er it was five years old and had a "stain" under the lineolum in the kitchen area. Over the years it got slightly larger, and finally 6 years later the floor started to flex when you walked on it. It was expensive to replace the water damaged wooden floor. I'm still not certain as to the source of the leak, it could be the shore water connection or the corner of the slide out seal in that area.

It is most likely caused by rotten wood sub flooring. To fix it means removing the flooring and fixing the underlayment, then replacing the flooring. Unless you can find the exact flooring you will have to replace the entire floor.

Northerngmc, Welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I have seen this in vinyl flooring and usually it is due to a subfloor that has gotten wet and dry rotted over the years. I would suspect that the toilet drain could be the culprit. You may want to pull it and investigate. Good luck and let us know what you find.

Thank to everyone for you answers.

I have posted two pictures in my gallery and am waiting approval.

I was scared it was water damage. This summer I will have to start looking. I had taken the tub access panel off this past summer and the flooring under there was OK.

Does the fridge drain water?

Yes the fridge drains water but thru a tube that comes out of fridge at lower end of drip pan in fridge. The tube should come out the back side of your fridge outside. In a small cup where it will dryup from heat back there or drains to outside of vent opening.
If you have a furnace under fridge check to make sure the top of furnace is sealed to outside wall the seal could be broken or never sealed when coach was built.
Water coming down sidewall outside will run thru this crack and windup on floor under the fridge and may run to rug in bath or your inlaid floor.

I have pulled the access panel off the side of the tube and looked under the tub. I could not see any damage under there and the flooring was fine under the tub.
