Question sponge like floor

Notice a sponge like feeling to the floor on our first camping trip. Reported and the dealer said not to worry (huh?) Well now it is getting worse and we seem to be getting no where with the dealer ~they will look at it again (in the middle of camping season here) I want it to go back to the Manufacture for repair..Let me know your thoughts

could be your first summer. Doesn't matter. You have a water leak that has attacked the floor. Find the leak, fix the leak and the floor.

had a leak in my 04 intruder. fortunatly i found it before i rotted the floor. it was comming in where the awning was attached to the side. it would run foward and come down where the windshield meets the side passenger window. i dont know where your leak is but look where anything is attached . good luck.

If you have not been inspecting and repairing roof leaks on a 6 month basis, the dealer will have an out for any potential warranty. # seasons of use and there will be no warranty.

Have you ever noticed your water pump turning on for a few seconds with the water valves closed? If so that's a sign that you may have a leak in one of the water fittings/hose that runs through your coach --- given enough time that will rot a floor.

I agree a leak some where is rotting the floor. If your dealer can't/wont find it and you are not comfortable with DIY, find a reputable repair facility soon. Water leaks are the death nail in a coach. It's important to find the cause, not impossible for it to be a roof leak working it's way down the wall to the floor.
