Screw in the floor

I have a 29BHS and right in front of the slide out couch there appears to be a screw head sticking up under the linoleum floor about 1/4" or more. IS there anything I can do aside from slicing the floor and screwing it down then putting a dab of caulk on it? Is it a screw?

just slice it carefully look what it is and if it is a screw, screw it down and glue the split. Use some matching silicone to touch up.

It may be a screw that screw's the floor down to the frame, if it is, go under the trailer and you can see where it's coming thru the cross member. Take a pair of vice grips and turn it counter clock wise to tighten it back down. That way you don't have to slice the linoleum floor.

I had that this year on my 24rks. Yes its a screw. I made a 3 corner slice with an xacto knife. It was a long screw for sure, screwed it back down with a drill/driver until it was tight. Put a coat of contact cement on both sides of the cut and pushed it back in place. Now I got a innie instead of an outie but it won't wear through the linoleum. Rock on!

Very common problem. I see it often on many makes/models

Home Depot and Lowes sell an actual vinyl floor adhesive instead of silicone. It will join the slit and will be a lot less noticeable. I had to use it when I had a screw in the floor of the slide rip the vinyl of the main floor. It also filled the gap it left with multiple applications. In my case I also covered the 4" slit with clear packaging tape so it would feel smooth. When it got scuffed the tape was only noticeable when well lit from the right angle. We completely forgot about it.

I sliced the floor in an x pattern was able to get the screw down. I look underneith and it is a sealed belly so no dice. Anyway the head of the screw is like 3/8" dia and now screwed into the floor at least 1/4" or more. What can I put under the floor now to fill the void? Caulk? Adhesive? Any thoughts?

I would use wood filler.
