Flooring

Anyone having a problem with their flooring coming up. I have a 2016 Itasca 35G with laminate floor tiles. After the big slide on the drivers side was extended I noticed about ten tiles have shifted.
I talked to a lady at CW with a 2017 35G she said her tiles started coming up a week after she took delivery.
It would be interesting to know how widespread this problem is.

LVT not Laminate...

Laminate flooring is "floating" and "clicked" together. LVT flooring are tiles or planks "glued" to the subfloor. If you'll private message me a photograph of the loose tiles and a separate picture of a tile you've removed so I can see the backing I can recommend a permanent adhesive to make the fix.

Be CAUTIOUS not to break or rip a tile/plank being removed. Use a heat gun on the lower setting and a wide (thin) drywall spatula for best results without damage.

Thanks. Eric Turnquist (Turnquist Carpets)

We have a 2014 37F Adventurer and our floor tiles are shifting also. I contacted
Winnebago and learned they are peel and stick. They can be heated with a hair dryer and peeled up and re-glued. I have not done it yet. I attempted to buy new tiles but Winnie wants $20 a tile. If you have repaired yours what adhesive did you use?

Thanks
Bill

My 2015 Vista 30T is now beginning to show divets where we sit in the chairs. Not too happy about this. I may remove the plastic dots with felt pads to see if this makes a difference.

Bill: I have not attempted a repair yet,been kinda busy. I was looking at the floor today more of is coming up my guess is the slide rollers and Florida temperature has something to do with that.
