I have contacted Forest River and have a schedule inspection date by the dealer on Nov 22. I have not removed anything under the trailer to see but it seems the center rear floor by the back window pushes down when stepped on. I have no idea if they have another layer of something between the carpet and the actual floor. Will keep you posted after the dealer checks.

to crocus: Yes the water was getting . The black plastic menbrane is very easy to destroy and when it was connected to the floor the menbrane was probably teared. These menbrane are very thin just like the tarp you buy at your hardware store to cover something for 5$

capucine, I caulked around the frame rails in the back inside edge and made a plastic cover for the outside edge. I was concerned about mice, never thought about water getting in.

Here are some photos of how I closed the gap around the rear frame on our 8280WS Rockwood.



Plastic cover made to fill gap on the outside edge of the 8020WS frame

I hope this keeps the mice and water out from under the 5vr.

Thanks for the pics f150k. Looks like a good fix. I'll have to check mine out tomorrow and see if I can't do the same.
