linoleum flooring in 30ds

I just noticed that some parts of the flooring in the main living area seems to be separated from the subfloor, meaning when i walk on it or touch/push on it there seems to be a gap and is noisy when i walk on it. kinda like the glue has released.
the dealer suggested that it was a floating floor covering. Not sure I'm buying that, due that it is not like that in other places.
any thoughts or experiences with this issue

We have a 2016 FR3 30DS with 42,200 miles and 2 years ago had air raising the floor while driving in strong winds. At that time RV service improved the sealing around the engine cover which seemed to correct the problem until the situation reoccurred this pst summer. It is now at a RV repair shop and I am having them check it again.

floor covering

Yes while we were out on the road this past summer we noticed bubbles in the flooring. When we returned home we took to RV dealer and they were able to repair the flooring. It look really nice now. Don't know what caused it.

I will check next time we are on the road to see if it gets air under it while driving.

linoleum flooring in 30ds

So my concern is what is causing the white powder like stain on the floor almost directly under the living room vent. The carpet runner does not have a backing and there are no leaks in the vent. The stain appears when we open the living room slide. I think the stain may be caused by moisture while the slide is closed. Like in the gap in space between the floor surface and the bottom of the dinette under the storage bin?

We open the slide an clean the white off the flooring. Close the slide and store for a few weeks and then it reappears when the slide is reopened. It comes back.
