    mould and fungus only grow in moist/damp conditions and poor ventilation.......take it back under warranty as it sounds like it could be water ingress.

    Take it back to where you bought it under warranty.

    serious fungus and mould growth after only 3 months...... I doubt it.

    sounds like it already had the damp problem when you bought it and was either overlooked or ignored on the hab check.

    as its all low down on one side i would say the seal between floor and wall has failed.

    just what the dealer will do about it is anyone's guess but it's their responsibility to sort it under warranty.

    sorry, my mistake for not reading properly.:Doh::Blush:

    rather than wall to floor joint it will obviously be wall to ceiling joint.

    i would say they should reseal the affected joints and remove the fungus/mould with a proprietary mould killer as a first line of attack.

    problem is......the damp is already in and you dont know how far it has spread.
