Bulging Kitchen Floor 
I've noticed a bulge on our Motorhome's kitchen floor that's about a foot in diameter. It's not soft and spongy. In fact, it's hard enough that I can jump on it and it wouldn't give. I tried to trace the water lines and the best of my knowledge, the water lines don't run underneath the bulge. However, the heating ducts do. Before the bulge, I noticed that that part of the floor tends to get rather warm when I turn on the furnace so I'm guessing that's the cause. I'd like to know what your thoughts are on this before I start any major project tearing up our Motorhome's floor.

Re: Bulging Kitchen Floor 
Even if your water lines don't run underneath the bulge, it could still be caused by water. Try turning on your pump for a bit and see if it's affecting the bulge. Another cause could be build up of moisture from the rain or snow in which case, you might have someone check it out.

The only way to really check this out is out is really to pull out the carpet and have a peak underneath it to find out what really is the problem. Best do it while it's still the winter time.

Agree! There is really no way to go around this.

Re: Bulging Kitchen Floor 
Henry's right. Unless you got some type of device there that will allow you to see what's wrong without having to tear away the carpet, the best option is really to get down and look underneath the carpet.
