Water in underbelly

Someone left a faucet on and the tanks filled and overflowed into the underbelly. I saw water dripping from under my trailer. I got the water shut off and emptied the tanks. Got the sink and shower emptied.
But I see there is water in the underbelly cause its swaying down.
Is there insulation in there that will get ruined?

Mine has pink fiberglass insulation. That stuff can wick a lot of water and take forever to dry. Drying is important because you don't want the moisture under the floor. You can cut a drain hole to get the majority out, or park on a steep bank.

And a dehumidifier capable of drawing water out of walls. Air conditioning will also help draw water out of the rig.

Water shouldn't have flowed from the tanks into the underbelly unless you've got a leak in the plumbing. Overflow from the sink and shower will seep into the underbelly.
