That is exactly what the floor in our Edgewater did after the 1st winter. I would guess in this case it may go flat when it gets warmer but they repaired ours under warranty as I mentioned earlier.

If you are still experiencing freezing temperatures, I wouldn't do anything until your temperatures rise. Pushing on frozen linoleum will likely result in cracking. Wait until it warms up when there is more flexibility. Basic characteristics of vinyl/plastic is expansion and contraction in changing temperatures.

Hopefully its the temperature as I don't use it when its cold. I can push down on the wrinkles so hopefully the floor is ok. When I run the slide in I can see it rise up slightly before coming in but I'll get down and watch it. I'd really like to not refloor the camper as I've got some other things that need done this spring.

I had this happen to me in my Prowler but it was caused by a leaking sink drain.

The flooring expands and contracts with temp changes, except at the edges where it is fixed in place by walls or furniture. Usually, the flooring is NOT glued down in RVs due to this phenonmenon, so as to inhibit tearing damage to the material. I notice that my flooring is loose when very cold in the RV and returns to normal as things warm up.

Well, it was 80 degrees here today and the floor is still wrinkled. I think the slide may be a little lower in the middle but I'll have to do some more checking. I can't imagine what would have happened to it but maybe it just needs more time to mellow out.
