Soft spots on floor on my new 2306

Good evening all,
I have a new 2016 2306 Rockwood I've been living out of for the last two mouths while working away from home. Yesterday when I got home I noticed the floor has some soft spots in different places from the bed to the bathroom. Don't no what to do. PLEASE HELP!

Our floor in 2306 is a little sponge and flexble in some spots as well but hasn't gotten any worse in 2 years now. Some times the creaking sound will come from under the dinette while walking by and drives me crazy. Its the aluminum framing I think. I finally seen how the floor was constructed and understand minilite/microlite is just that, built to shave weight for towing. Love our lil 2306 but its for sure not built from bricks.

We've noticed a soft spot in our new-to-us 2012 Rockwood 2701SS. We'll be keeping an eye on it.

We had a soft spot in front of the fireplace in our 2014 Rockwood and we contacted the dealer and FR. FR initially told us over the phone that it was normal as some of the plywood underneath the vinyl floor may have an air gap. When I "wrote" back to FR confirming that they said it was normal, they changed their minds and decided to have it fixed under the warranty. Wound up that the plywood floor sections were not tongue and grove and the soft spot was between to adjoining pieced of plywood that were butting together, not at a joint, but in between the joint, i.e. open air. It entailed reinforcing the floor from underneath the rig. Problem solved, no more soft spot.
