We have a 2006 Tour with linoleum in the bathroom/kitchen areas. The last five times we've taken it out we've found the tiles buckling at the seams. In a couple of cases the tiles have not only buckled, but they then moved an inch or two. Took it to Lazydays to determine root cause. Answer: No idea. Use better glue and glue them in place.
Anyone else have a similar problem? thanx

We had this problem in our Suncruiser after it sat at the dealer for a few weeks awaiting another repair. It was in the 90's during that time and the coach was completely closed up. We figure heat and humidity in the coach caused the tiles to buckle. Tiles were replaced (at no cost to us) and have not had the problem since.

I've got a similar problem with the tile in the galley on my 98 Winnebago Vectra. I met a guy last year who had a 97 vectra with the same problem. My guess is the adhesive is allowing the tile to creep and short of removing the tile and the adhesive there is little that can be done. I've moved some of mine back into place and within a year, they have moved back.

I'm thinking of replacing mine with a laminate floor.

I experienced the same problem in two areas of my Meridian. I think it is caused by slight movement of the vertical structure vs the horizontal (floor).

In both areas, I was able to access the tile piece inside a cabinet area, and pull it back to its proper place and then staple it to the sub-flooring. (On mine, one tile was under the corner of the shower, the other at the coner of a linen closet.)

The staples are out of sight, and after one summer's travel, are now out of mind.

Just a thought. If the tile was installed with no room for expansion, heat and humdity or something else could cause them to buckle. They need a little bit of "give room"

In a 03 Horizon 39QD I had tile move in the Bathroom area and next to the verticle wall for the one place. I really don't know the final fix, but I do know tile glue was used instead of just heating the tile and some shoe molding was removed. If I remember right the verticle wall was moving somewhat and the tile was not trimmed to allow for movement. Thats the reason for removing the shoe molding to trim the tile, I think. Good Miles PS do a search on the subject and you might find some answers.

Yes, I have a '04 Journey with the same problem. At first it was just lifting and I assumed it was the adhesive, but now it seems to be buckling and moving. Any advice?
