Flooring/Frame Question

I have a 2015 Dutchmen Denali 2611BH and recently decided to fix a soft spot in the floor caused by the cheap sandwich/foam core flooring. I am trying to find out what the frame/chassis looks like and how far apart the beams are spaced. Thanks for your help!

I have the same issue with my 2016 denali. Going to probably put a metal plate over the affected area (under the carpet) .

A stud finder with sensitivity control may be of assistance. From top of floor you should be able to trace the frame that runs across the narrow part of trailer. Should work with wood or aluminum construction.

Good luck.

I have a 2017 Denali 507RLS and had the same issue. The Dealer (General RV Tampa Fl worked with Keystone and what they did was excess from the underside and in the area(s) effected they ran a floor joint between the joists that showed soft areas. The root cause was the seam of the wood floors DID NOT fall on the joists where they should have but were unsupported. Good as new!! FYI they rebuilt kitchen slide with a 5/4 floor and added rollers instead of a wear plate system. Junk! Rollers seem great it's been a month and one 1100 mile trip!

I bought my RV at GENERAL (Nathan) in Tampa. they were great while the warranty lasted but after that, they were powerless (they said). I have an area that is "soft" and will need to fix it myself.
