Vinyl Floor Problem

Hello. We have a 2014 Rockwood 8319ss. Last night we just happened to notice that a piece of trim where the wall meets the floor was pulled out slightly. This is in the front of the trailer behind the recliners. When I looked at the trim and the wall I didn't see anything out of the usual and figured the trim pulled out from pushing the recliners towards the front (which is required for getting the living room slide in) and then pulling them back out for use. When I got to the part of the trim that is closest to the side of the trailer with the door, I noticed that the vinyl flooring looked stretched or almost like it had bubbled up in a place that one of the recliners sets. I instantly feared water had caused this and pulled back the piece of trim again and inspected where the wall met the floor on the front cap assuming that this is where water would have entered. The floor looked normal. Has anyone seen this before and how can I fix it? I think it's either from the recliners, stretching from cold winters, then hot summers, or this was done at the factory and the recliner has covered it up all of this time.Click image for larger version

On our Wildcat I brought in our main slide and didn't see that we had a foldable end table in the way. Gouged the Woodlook floor pretty bad, but did not cut the vinyl. After beating myself up pretty bad I decided to try an old gunsmiths trick. To remove small nicks from a gunstock you place a damp cloth over the stock and then iron it with a clothes iron set pretty high. I tried that and it worked like a charm, you cannot tell there was anything ever wrong with our floor.

I think this would be a fix for your situation. Your flooring looked similar to ours but ours was even worse. You have nothing to lose and it won't hurt the floor.
