Sub zero Temps cause damage?

Went to the storage lot today to check on my 2002 Winnebago Brave and run the generator. During the week we had temperatures of -15 degrees and several days where the high for the day stayed below zero. Today the high was 45. I was horrified to find the vinyl flooring in the bath was split from the shower across to the toilet. Just like a ragged crack in ice. There is no sign of water damage under it. Plywood under floor looks fine. I couldn't find any other damage. Could the cold do this?

Cold and dry air, yes. Extreme temp changes.

Hope you drained water lines

My buddy's toy hauler did the same thing in early January when it got to about 12 below.

Place and stick vinyl tile going in when it warms up.
