Soft flooring RW Sig 8312ss

Hay everyone . I have a issue with the flooring in my 8312ss . The problem is the floor has gone soft in the bathroom in front of the sink and leading out into the pantry area of the trailer. I don't see any water or anything leaking from the bottom anywhere.. It feels like you could put your foot through it if you step in the wrong place.. Of course you can't see anything from the bottom because the holding tank takes up all the space in the area.. I talk to the Rockwood engineer in Indiana and she tells me the floor in our trailer is on big piece of composite material the is manufacture by them so you can't cut and replace with new wood at all
Any thoughts or suggestion...
Doug

Hate to tell you this but she is correct. At the Goshen rally I toured the Rockwood Plant. The floor is one whole piece. It is engineered by them. The floor is the second thing attached in the line all cut outs are already made at there glue lam. plant. Depending on which model is being produced that week. We were their when they were building the V nose models. They did say that they have changed resins and other things now to make them stronger. You could try bracing the area from below but if it is the center material that gave way that would not help you out at all.

Hello
You could try putting down laminate in the affected area, I know some people have done this to take away the flex.
How old is the trailer?

Have you found the source of the water damage? I ask because we have a 8311ss - similar floor plan to yours - and we had water coming from directly under the pantry where you have to unscrew the cabinet face to get to it. That is where the water filter goes.

Good luck - I hope you are able to get the problem fixed!!
