Likely source of soft spot in floor?

Hey all! So the soft spot right inside the door and in the middle of the floor in the entry has become worse. A dealer couldn't find the source this spring. There are now visible signs either in the ceiling, under cabinets, membrane under the RV, etc. Right now, I have a piece of plywood on top of it but plan to take it to a Wildwood dealer to find the source.

Any ideas where to look for possible leaks? It's a 2010 xlite 18bhxl. Really love this trailer and want to do what I can to fix/preserve it.

I think it can be as simple as walking in wet from the rain and placing shoes there when you come in. Soft spots at the door are very common. You may also be getting a bit of water thru the door during driving or windy storage. Obviously water is getting to the floor. Might not be from the ceiling.

Good luck.

Thanks Vin. I'm very careful about water and wet things on the floor. All wet shoes, etc. are removed before coming inside and I have very nice absorbant rugs are inside the door and entryway.
