Soft Floor 31DS

The floor outside of the bathroom in the hallway in my 2016 31DS appears to be soft. It actually moves up and down. This area of the flooring is right above the left rear wheel opening. When checking outside in the wheel opening the floor appears solid. I don't know if it is water damage or a matter of improper support. Has anybody else had any problems with this area of the floor? I have contacted JAYCO, still waiting for a reply. Thanks

I have a number of soft, or spongy spots in the floor. Perhaps not to the extent you have - as the floor doesn't move enough to be seen.

They're just soft under-foot.
I'm thinking these are normal spots that lack sufficient support.

Can you let us know what Jayco says?

Noticed it on my 2017. Feel it only with bare feet.
figured it was lack of support

That's just a piece of sheet metal above the wheel well. It's the same way in my 31fs. I sprayed it outside to keep it from popping every time we walked over it.

JAYCO got back to me about the floor and here is what they said,

"I completely understand the question on the floor as I would also question it. There has been no issues brought up concerning the floor on your model, I would suspect your feeling a cutout in the floor for some component and they do there best to fill it in so its not noticeable but the areas can feel soft when putting pressure on. I would not think it is anything safety or water damage but just to be on safe side once your done with the trip you can have it inspected to be reassured."

Since it's above the wheel opening, it probably is due to lack of support. I will have it checked out at a later date.

I was going to make a new thread but decided to add to this one. Does anyone with a 31DS have a soft spot in the floor just behind the driver seat and in front of the dinnette? Mine feels soft in about a 4 inch circular area just out from the wall. Mine is a 2018. Thanks.

Get you a moisture meter. Used to detect moisture content in different types of building materials and can help point out leaks. Might help you know if your floors are getting wet causing the soft spots.

NKYRVGUY,
I am experiencing the same softness behind the drivers seat on my 31DS. It does seem to be spreading. I have looked all around the slide out but do not see anything obvious. Maybe coming from underneath. I will let you know what I find. Please do the same for me.

1. I found a hole in the exterior roof near the TV mount. 2. One of the screws isn't holding for the curtain (2nd one in from drivers side). 3. And I noticed a rusty water stain hidden behind the curtain going down towards the soft spot. I am worried the floor took in some water at the dealer lot. The hole is now sealed with dicor and the RV has been in the pole barn since I got it from the dealer a couple of weeks ago. I will call about it on Monday.
