Follow up to wood floor problem
I just had a similar repair issue with my 2005 FR Wildwood, in the corner of the slideout where the bench seat is installed. We discovered that the corner of the floor and the carpet was wet. We immediately put our dehumidifier to work, set at "constant" to remove the water from the area, which took about a week.
The problem turned out to be a small piece of untreated 3/8" plywood in the corner of the rollout, factory installed by Forest River. It is exposed to rainwater and the elements, and due to a lot of rain this season, this wood soaked up water like a sponge, then wicked it into the floor of the slideout below the bench.
We were glad at least that it was not a roof leak.
Repairing this was not easy. I will describe that in another posting, but it took about 6 hours to complete and two trips to the hardware store, after it was all dried out. This kind of task is best done by a trim carpenter or auto body repairman, as skills in both areas come in handy. Not for the clumsy or unskilled, as it required almost every tool I owned to get it done right. It's all done now, and the repair is better than the original factory installation. (We swear our trailer was built on a Friday afternoon, if you know what i mean.) Discouraged that F.R. uses untreated plywood painted black exposed when the slideout is extended to rot in the Florida rain, and couples that with screws that rust to boot. Oh well.
