Default Floor Repairs on a 2011 244RBS

When we purchased our new Fun Finder in August we noticed a popping noise when walking anywhere in the unit. It sounded like a crunch or like walking on corn flakes, kinda' hard to describe. The dealer gave us a "We Owe You" about the noise during the orientation. The service adviser didn't seem to thrilled about working on it, he said a lot of trailers did that. Being new at this I was naive but figured something wasn't right or I would not have gotten the "We Owe You" form. After our first trip, 4 weeks to Wyoming (we live in Va.) I was ready for an insane asylum. You could not take a step without a popping or cracking sound. As you may know, seniors get up at night and the rb in 244rbs stands for rear bath. The noise was really loud at 2 am. So, as soon as we got home the camper went back to the dealer. Again the service adviser didn't seem to eager to take on the repaid. After about two weeks of inactivity I had a face to face with the service manager four weeks latter I got my trailer back, fixed. Now the reason for this post. Before the fix was made I search everywhere on line for this problem and came up blank. The manager said the wrong type of glue was used between the 1 1/2 " aluminum stringers and the 5/8" plywood flooring. The glue was crystallized and when compressed by stepping on the floor it would shatter and create that insane noise. They cut open the underbelly, cleaned, re-glued, and screwed all the stringers to the plywood. They even removed the gray water tank to get to the area above. He said he had 10-12 hours of labor tied up in the repair. I'm glad it's warranty work. I'm passing this along to help anyone who has or knows someone who has this problem. I'm sure my Fun Finder isn't the only one some factory tech messed up on.
