Front bedroom floor has gaps in floor/frame

We are replacing the flooring in our new to us 2003 Prowler fifth wheel. There are gaps that we can see daylight through - where the components of the frame meet. Is there any reason not to seal those gaps with flexible caulk? Are the gaps intentional to let the unit “breathe”, or just sloppy workmanship that was concealed with carpet?

I am not an expert but I think any gaps should be sealed. I use my roof vents with covers cracked a little so my trailer breathes.

Thanks so much - just wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing something.
