Power washing interior with subfloors

We had my father power wash our airstream. Little did we know that he would power wash the interior with (unplugged) with our exposed wires, subfloor, etc.

Do we have a problem? and what should we do now?

That's one way to check for leaks...fill it up with water. LOL. Sounds like something I would do.

Dry it out? Rent a dehumidifier, run it with the drain hose to the outside.

I pressure washed the interior of my trailer with all wires exposed as well. I ended up using the original wiring, and now it is a couple years later, and everything is still fine. I did replace all of the electrical outlets, more because I wanted something new looking and not the tired old yellowing originals. I had no subfloor in my trailer at the time. Your floor will probably be fine--you just need to get it dried out ASAP. Get some fans to keep the air moving, and it should be fine in a day or two.

good luck!
