Rotted floor between door and sink corner

Will attach pics later. Checking door for possible cause. Door needs realigning. Any other causes possible that you can think of?

We have a 2002 22' International we have spent in excess of $10,000 have our floors replaced. They are a particle board type of material. If I had realized earlier leeks needed to be looked for I would have been smarter.
The trailer was built with these moisture damaging "subfloors", covered with nice thick carpet padding, beautiful light carpet, then covered with a double thick layer of plastic, all furnishings were then installed preventing observation of leaks until the damage was done.

I should have purchased a moisture detector when we bought the TT.
This is a fine example of a design flaw, carpet in a TT w/I a method for leaning.
The first realization was setting the unit up after dark in an area where a dog had been left tied up and not cleaned afterward.

We just discovered water damage in a similar location in our 25ft Flying Cloud (front bedroom). I'm going to have to rip up the vinyl flooring, replace it with marine grade plywood or true pressure treated ply, then reapply a different type of floor covering. Before any of this I'd really like to know where the water is coming from. Were any of you able to trace the incursion to its source?

I'd appreciate all of your advice.

Thank you!

Hey, y'all... I have used 'Git Rot with a lot of success... do not replace unless the structure is gone.. the 'Git Rot may be able to penetrate if applied properly..and save you $$$ and get you 'camping' sooner!!!

Knudsvig-Check the kitchen faucet and lines. Also check the lines and the water filter for the filtered water tap. That's where it looks to me to be coming from. We have a '97 as well and that is where ours was leaking. We ended up replacing the main faucet. Cured the problem.

Plumbing. The bane of the mobile life. But none would choose to be without it.

It's still damp and soft. Any ideas how long it will take to dry?
