so after deciding on an inexpensive laminate from HD, i decided to rip out the hideous dingy blue shag carpet in my 01 national islander with drivers super slide. once i had the whole of the carpet out and stood back and looked everything over, i noticed quite a bit of discoloration in the sub floor. the most severe section seemed to between the drivers chair and wall. then extending less severely to the length of the couch. on the opposite wall, the floor underneath the another window has some discoloration but doesnt appear to be severe at all. the floor is not rotted and seems to be superficial. on this side, i notice 4 or 5 holes in the floor close to the size of a dime. a couple of those holes empty into the sealed bays. a couple of them are over an open area where the canister for the hydraulic leveling system is. all of the walls seem to be very solid with no waving or hollow feels/sound. my questions are is it pretty common for the slides to leak or the drivers window because it seems theres where most of the areas of concern are. could these leaks be superficial or should i drop money into ripping out walls and resealing everything? i guess i'll have a better idea when i pull the couch and flooring under the couch. general ballpark guess on what type of bread i can expect to drop on repairs. i know i wont be putting down laminate on top of even the least bit of continuous moisture situations.
