Water Overflow in Shower Area

We are newbies and just finished our maiden voyage. I learned many lessons and one was not to trust the tank guages. My grey water was only showing 1/4 full. We filled it up one morning and had an overflow problem in the shower. It soaked 6 inches of the carpet in the bedroom and we saw some water flowing out of the bottom of the coach. I mopped and dried everything up. My concern is the area under the carpet in the bedroom. Is it a wood underlayment? Should I be concerned about water damage and rotting?

Yes it is wood, you should try to get some type of dryer to use that blows and circulates air in the room. Open the windows and run it for several days. Even if it feels dry on the surface, it can stay wet in the padding for a few days. It should be OK if you dry it completely.

Thanks Jim:

I've had a fan on it for 36 hours. I'm sure it will help prevent any preliminary rotting.
