    Floor in front of the cooker is a bit spongy along where the ply meets for about 2 feet long by 6 inches wide .What is the cheapest fix?

    It can be a simple DIY job, if not a bit messy, normally it's because the insulation has broken down. The repair is to forcefully inject resin into the floor through holes you have drilled at about 6inch intervals all over and just beyond the affected area Drill, fill as much as possible then force the last bit it in with a dowel the width of your hole, well that's what a mate of mine did with his caravan and it worked well. :thumb:

    Hi Just a word of caution check that it is delamination and that the floors not damp :Eeek::thumb:If it is damp then it's a whole new ball game :Smile:
