Tiny solid balls growing on my floor

This is my first post here. Hoping someone knows what these are and how to get rid of them.
In the last few months, I have noticed this little, hard wart like solid tiny bubbles popping up on my 2017 Passport UL 2890 RL in a few places throughout the floor. All on the passenger side. They are solid and hardened little balls.

I would be taking an immediate look at the underside of your vinyl flooring. Either you've got a reaction within the vinyl backing, a reaction of the luan (or adhesive in the luan) or water damage. I'd suspect that the vinyl backing is wet and something in the flooring is crystalizing, causing the "tiny balls".....

Is this below your a/c or a vent?

No it's not near the AC nor Vent. It's in the bedroom (forward) passenger side and the other one is all the way near the rear also on the passenger side.

Could vinyl have out gassing? I know it should be porous but if it was a bad lot, could some gas have been trapped....

Possible. Weird that I haven't been able to find anything about this searching the web

Have you tried pricking one of the balls to see what comes out?

I think I'd invest in a cheap model of a pin type moisture meter. Here's one for $20 don't know how accurate the low end ones are. https://www.homedepot.com/p/General-...MM1E/100651810
That's the easiest, least destructive way of checking for water intrusion that I know.

I agree with you. I've got one and every once in a while I just crawl around underneath and inside and poke and probe. I've found several damp spots and been able to seal up little leaks that would have eventually led to extensive water damage!
