What are the potential problems that could be associated with crawlspace floor insulation (fiberglas batts) that is installed with the vapor barrier(kraft paper) towards the crawlspace and NOT towards to floor of the home?

condensation can build up along the underside of the floor and cause it to rot away.... I would either pull it out and turn it around or at the very least remove the paper

Good luck
