Description:

I discovered a large spongy area under the back area of my burro floor when I removed the bed set up for the electrician to have access. 1. linoleum removed. 2. top layer of plywood removed. 3. you are seeing the top layer of fiberglass floor. The burro floor has a layer of fiber over and under the plywood floor.

    Hi, I wanted to ask you if you have completed your floor? When we pulled our old carpet out, it left us with a very uneven sub floor. Because of the fiberglass walls extending down the wall and a few inches across the floor. Some larger than others. So we would like to know if this was like yours, and how did you fix it? Thank you, Cathy

    I am so sorry this is so long delayed - I pulled up the picture, but didn't see the text. Duh. I have completed the floor. So, The fiberglass walls of the burro are double walls. So, the floor, between the inside and outside walls - along with some of the floor - was dry rot. We pulled what we could and and cut out more until we had solid plywood. We used a universal tool to grind out the plywood between the layers of inside and outside fiberglass to get to healthy wood. Then I made a template in three sections to replace the wood. I was cautious to make the sections with the metal frame wood supporting it. I coated the pieces with fiberglass and reinstalled them then fiberglassed over the seams. It worked really well for me. Somewhere in the fiberglass RV site I posted pictures when I was working on it.
