I have a few soft spots as well (2019 Entegra Esteem 31L). I didn't notice it on the PDI since I was wearing shoes. It seems I can only feel them barefoot. I can't imagine it's from water, as the rig was on the dealer lot for only a few days and since I picked it up, it hasn't rained!

After crawling around underneath the rig this weekend, I did find a few very small rips in the black plastic sheathing that's covering the plywood underneath the rig, around the wheel well. I'm guessing maybe a rock was thrown up and nicked the plastic. Seems like there should be something there beyond the thin plastic, around the wheel wells at least!

I see that infomercial about flex seal, wondering if I can spray that stuff over the plastic above the wheels in the wheel well?

When we were younger and living up in PA winters, we used to take roofing tar to coat the wheel wells to protect them from the road salt. Worked really well and was inexpensive.

When I had mine at the factory for repairs, they installed a brace in the left wheel well where the soft spot was. That added the extra support needed.

I have a 2014 31DS and have a large soft area behind the driver's seat as well. I believe the problem developed from gaps in the caulking where the bunk-over-cab compartment mates with the main roof. I caulked this seam as well as the black trim that runs down the driver-side wall. I'm hopeful I might be able to replace this part of the subflooring without removing the slide-out. Anyone completed this already on their rig?
