Now Termites

I started to replace wood at interior wall under the exterior outlets. Bummer now there's termites. I have to finish pulling up the floors but had hoped to finish under bed and wall before going on to bathroom/ rest of floor...Any suggestions on how to make sure termites are gone before I get them everywhere?

I just had mine looked at by a repair facility. He says my spongy floor is normal. Everything is dry and looked good. He stated I had poor support for the type of floor from the factory but it normal and ok.

I have a 2011 165. It was purchased in 2012 and was never used. I have a soft spot under right foot if your sitting on the toilet. I agree I think its a design flaw, no damage from water. Another thing and maybe its just my imagination but the bathroom floor in its entirety and even under the tub and into about an inch under the bed seems to be slightly raised and softer as if there is some kind of a material under there.

I too had spongy floor in my Jayfeather 226.I first ,while on the road placed a piece of plywood bracing under the trouble spot,between the 2 steel beams under the unit.Attached with angle irons and screwed to the beams using self tapping screws.I have since ,pulled the bath totally apart and replaced the floor with 1x6 souther yellow pine tongue and groove.Glued and screwed.It is MY BELIEF,while traveling in HIGH RAIN conditions,added to the hi humidity in South Florida,the flakeboard just breaks down.I checked the 2010 unit ,which I care for like a child for all kinds of leaks,yet,THIS YEAR,I had to place plywood bracing at the entrance ,as I did in the bath originally ,because it softened during a short trip ,again in the rain.I hope Jayco changes ,or changed the type of flooring,because,MY WIFE damn near went thru the bath floor, which prompted me to do something drastic.I did talk with a Jayco dealer,who told me ,it was out of warranty.Being a handy guy with no patience ,nor time to take my unit from Fl.Keys to a dealer.I did it myself.Stepping out of the elevated bath in a Jayfeather 226,and having a soft floor ,added to the fact ,cross beams are not at the load point ,could cause injury.Beware and if you have one,put the brace under as a precaution
