    Hi
    We had the same on our Gulfstream. After a while we took the floor covering up and found that we had a leak. The floor underneath the covering was soaking and the water had been sealed in by it so we coudnt see it. The damp made the floor lift and creak If you have a lino type floor covering check under it you may have the same problem. Hope you havent.

    Cheers

    Hi ..

    Could also be de lamination, usually where there is heavy traffic . ie sink and cooker. basically the polystyrene insulation under the plywood compresses and leaves a gap..

    It can be repaired by drilling from underneath (or above if you can lift the lino), into the area affected and pumping in expanding polystyrene foam..

    Hi, if it is delamination it will get steadily worse. You can fix though, see here

    HI, You don't say how old the Mohican is. Is it a 2008 model or older?
    It is relevant to a floor delamination problem on some early 2008 model year builds.
