Flooring Discoloration

Does anyone have discolored flooring from damp spots? Or dents where they attach the bolt to the frame?

In the center of the trailer the flooring looks light (normal). Towards the edges the flooring gets darker and some areas look reddish. If you look carefully it "almost" looks like black mold under the top clear layer of the flooring, but is marbled enough to look like a natural discoloration of the flooring.

With the amount of leaks I have already found, I'm hoping that the discoloration is normal and not mold that will mean more issues.

I'll try and get some pictures to see if it can explain better.

We had a Keystone Litehouse and our floor looked the way you described. We had a couple water leaks and the backing on the flooring used absorbed some of the water. When it dried it looked terrible, like big stains everywhere. I ended up covering it with carpet to hide the stains. I cut the flooring in the stained area to look for mold but it was just discoloration from the backing. I'd keep an eye on it to see if the color changes to a darker stain. Good luck.
