Floor Bubble

We have a GT 2005ts XL. When we bought it 3 years ago, there was a bubble in the flooring in front of the refrigerator/pantry. It does not seem to have worsened but I was wondering...

Does anyone else have this issue?
Has anyone tried to fix it?

Thanks for any inputs...

Bill

Does it feel like it's just the linoleum or the wooden flooring under it. If just the linoleum I've seen where some have used a small needle to release the air but also inject some glue to help it stick to the sub-flooring.

I have had that on a few campers. I took it to the dealer and they fixed it by glueing it down. Very easy fix.

X2 what Charlie said for the repair.

It wasn't in an RV, but I did a similar repair to some vinyl flooring on a landing in one of my homes once upon a time.

Might be worth a try.

I am sure it's just the linoleum and don't have pics because you really can't see it but feel it flex underfoot.

Thanks for the input. I may experiment when I get a chance.

the vinyl floor is perimeter fastened only, there is usually no glue under the whole floor. injecting some adhesive under the bubble should take care of it. the needle and syringe normally used aren't so little, think turkey injector. vinyl adhesive is pretty thick stuff to squeeze through a needle. Crain tools, model 143 is what I normally use. get a good multi-purpose vinyl floor adhesive, anything else may discolor the flooring.
