Loud "pop" in floor, now it dips

I recently bought a used 2015 Z-1 211RD. One day I heard a pretty good pop in the floor in front of the refrigerator. I didn't think too much of it. Now I'm noticing that that area has a little more flex to it than the rest of the floor. It almost looks like a crease forming in the linoleum going across side to side. The floor also dips 1/4" when I stand on it, pulling down from the curved wall that goes around the bathroom. Would this be covered under warranty to get it checked out? I also purchased an extended warranty through the dealer but it mentions nothing about floor structure.

We have the same exact year and model. Though I never heard a pop, we have the same depression in front of the refrigerator. It seems to be getting more pronounced. I'll follow this thread closely, and will join you in any effort towards resolution!

Mine has the same depression in the floor since new. I questioned Crossroads about it at the rally in 2013. They just scratched their heads. I have had nothing fail yet. I think it is where the front to rear furnace duct connects to the furnace, which is under the fridge. I'm not sure how it connects, as the floor joist's run fron to back.
It is a 2012 Z1 272BH.

I thought I read in another thread someone had an aluminum cross member break a weld and the floor started to squeak and sag when standing on it. My Sunset Trail has a squeak and "soft spot" in the hallway. I haven't been ambitious enough to pull the weather guards off the bottom of the trailer and inspect it myself, but that seems like the culprit to me.

Hopefully someone else has experience with this. I'm curious too.

Here are a couple of floor framing pictures of a floor from another brand but I'm sure that they do something very similar in your brand. Since there is no support the floor will feel soft right in the spot where the plenum meets the heat duct. And if when they lay the plywood and put a seam across this it could feel even softer. I'm not sure if they use tongue and groove for the flooring on your brand but the pop you might have heard could of been the tongue and groove separating or breaking.
