weird question about shower floors

Can you check.....Did anyone notice the shower floor appears to be "padded" underneath. or did I have a major leak under mine and the floor is all rotted? ie; when you stand in the shower it does not feel like you have and are standing on a hard/solid piece of wood underneath. Use your heel if you are not sure. 2014 365saqb sierra. Thanks.

That's exactly how mine feels. Once my dealer told me it's normal I actually find it nice.

There is flex in the floor of our shower stall, true on the V-Lite we bought last year, and the 5er we bought in January...both from day one.

for home builds contractors will use expanding spray foam to fill gap between OSB floor and tub or shower bottom, not sure if they use this practice in the RV's but that could be what you are feeling.

NO,it is NOT padded,remove the access panel and you (Will/could) find that the (Plummer/installer of the shower pan,cut a (HUGE/BIG) hole in your floor to install the Trap! You will (Will/Could) find the shower (Floor,Pan) supports in (Mid Air) NO contact with the floor! You will have to build a (Bridge/Truss) support across the (Cutout Area)! This is what I have done on a (Few) to fix the (Nice Padded Shower Floor)? Youroo!!

The showers / tubs have a styrofoam base / support under them. Pretty much all of the RV types do. Go look at a new one at a surplus. Not crazy about them, but I've never had one break or crack yet.

Never had one like that, but not suprised either. Gotta wonder about the thought process sometimes.

Youroo, when I say "flex" I mean no more than 1/8", over the entire shower pan floor. There's no more flex at the drain than there is at the side walls. It flexes only where the weight of each foot is.
