Man, I feel for ya'. If push comes to shove, re-floor it and sell it back to the place you bought it. Be done with it. Get yourself something else and start fresh. What a freakin' nightmare.

Bought it from a private seller. The front sofa base and cabinets will need to be rebuilt too.

I hope the adjuster comes through for you... if not, maybe an ad on Craigslist for a handyman, maybe retired... I just typed in home handyman retired in google and got lots of responses...

This might be repairable, but not likely cheap at a commercial shop. Someone has to kind of know their way around tools and have some wood working skills and the time to do it. A rebuild might be a good option, and when that is being done, you may find the culprit hole... likely the rot has been there for a while and you just now uncovered it.

Good Luck

Insurance will more than likely total it. Take the money and run.

I spotted a leaker early on at the turboflush fitting. It only leaked water into the camper when I was outside running it, and it was under and behind the cabinets.

Just happened to notice some water near the water pump (same cabinet) and figured it out while trying to find the non-existent pump leak.

I did not "winterize" the turboflush and the fitting cracked.

hello...my name is david. insurance companies DO pay claims like this. I have proof. I have repaired numerous floors like this under insurance and have documentation. I have also written all the major carriers about the industry standards that lead to this condition. floating vinyl is what allows huge swathes of floor to degrade in very little time. though not said, im sure the industry went this direction due to movement at the joints rifting the vinyl. at least thats what I thought till I saw the jayco vid on the "why" thread. some mfg still do the "full spread". at least one industry rep here says your negligent. an owner, using due diligence should see water and correct. my contention is, if the water is under the vinyl, who can see it? thats why I mentioned the molding at the floor line. I saw no staining on the molding. the sofa base and cabinets, are they just stained or rotted? these are the components on which you build your case.
