Floor Damage

Hey everyone. Just thought I'd see if I could get some advice on here. I purchased a 2002 Coachman Shasta, 29', pretty nice. Until I noticed a weak floor in the bathroom. The floor under the tub is extremely soft and causing the tub to sink down when someone is in it. I guess my question is, is there a way to support the tub without having to tear the whole thing out? I'm not too savvy when it comes to carpentry so I'm looking for an easy solution, if there is one. Thanks in advance for any replys!

When your dealing with rotton floors there is possiable mold and the smell that comes with it. If you say it's soft then tub could be damaged. Tub would need to come out and the structure repaired. send me a email we can talk more

As mentioned and with what you describe I would suspect the tub will have to come out and that portion of the floor replaced. Doesn't sound like probably you want to hear but that's probaby the only real fix here. For something temporary if you can gain access to an area underneath the tub you could possibly insert some kind of supports until you can fix it properly. JMHO
