There's not much good on TV tonight so I was looking on YouTube. This guy has a bunch of mobile home repairs on there. Apparently he does a video estimate for the owner. If you look a little further on his channel you can see the project completed. Anyway, this is the damage a leaky tub can do.

Yep, this is a very common repair in mobile homes. I happen to be working on a bathroom remodel/repair right now with the rotted particle board floors. My job is limited to just the bathroom, but the damage is often not caught in time to save the next rooms.

In this video, it sure seems like a good time to switch out the polybutylene plumbing to PEx. He has that bathroom, the water heater and the washing machine plumbing all exposed. Never will get an easier shot at it.
