What should a wall feel like
My husband and I just bought our first travel trailer used — a 2019 Jayflight 324bds from private owners. It was a family who said they only used it 4 or 5 times locally and wanted to put in a pool instead. The unit still smelled like the factory to me. We admittedly don’t know a thing about trailers and took their word that there were no issues.
And maybe there aren’t. But as I was putting in a backsplash tonight, I noticed that the kitchen wall has some “give” or “bounce” when I push on it. The rest of the wall is solid. My husband said this is just where the interior panel isn’t overlaying frame. But he’s an electrical engineer, not a structural engineer haha and he’s never owned any kind of RV. We bought this thing cash and the more I've learned about travel trailers, the more I’m paranoid about water damage. I’ve made an appointment to have the roof inspected and any necessary resealing, but how do I know if this is a “soft wall?” When I push, it gives about a half an inch. Not wet, no discoloration, but I swear I hear/feel a little crunch when I push. Am I being a paranoid naysaying wife? Shouldn’t every area of the walls be solid? What does a “soft spot” feel like?
