Probably the tank hanger bolts weren't tightened properly. We have carpet and wood planking in our Cardinal. For the ones under carpet I just cut a slit and tightened them. The one forcing the word up I was able to remove two planks, tighten bolt and reinstall wood. There may be one coming up in bath which is vynal so that will be mor proplematic.

We had what appears to be the same issue with our Cherokee.
We were told the flooring is only glued down around the furnace openings and around the outside edges.
The service folks were able to carefully lift the flooring and reset the nails that had worked loose. It has been over a year and the floor still looks perfect. No cutting, dents, or dings.
Good luck with your repairs.

First, looking closely can you tell if you are looking at the pointed end of the screw or is it large enough to be the head end of the screw backing out. If the points are protruding then there is no sense cutting the floor. You will need to back them out from below and install a shorter screw but not in the same holes.
It c old be if this it a toy hauler , that weight in the rear is causing frame flex, this will cause the screws to work up out of the frame.
Second when we do floor repairs we have a local flooring installer do repairs. He will come and he needs to know the mfr. and type of vinyl. Each vinyl flooring material has a different type of repair adhesive. It was pretty educational to see him do the repairs. He has replaced pieces in the middle of the floor and you can't see the seams.
Some glues will swell the vinyl and show . From someone who has tried the repair.
