Updates to an old coach

We have a 2000 MADP. Recently pulled the cabinets and TV out if the nose, built new cabinets and installed a 42" plasma. I am now pulling out all of the carpet and tile and replacing with new tile. I'd like to post some pics of the work but don't are a way to do it here. Any suggestions?

deanjeep, very interested to see your photos!

Also I am doing some work on our 2006 Ventana. I have already replaced the 2 old monsters of a TV and replaced them with Samsung LED flatscreens, a 32 inch and a 26 inch. Both have Internet apps and work great. I am thinking about pulling the carpet and the tiles and replacing it with manufactured wood strip flooring. I am wondering how thick the existing tiles are. I was guessing 1/8th but Newmar told me, at least, 1/4 inch or more, plus 9 mm plywood underlayment. So I am interested to read what you find.

Just finished today getting all the carpet and tile removed. I haven't pulled the carpet up in the bedroom yet or in the slide out as we will not have those replaced until after the tile is in. This is an ambitious project but I was able to get everything pulled out in two days. New tile goes in tomorrow. Here's some pics of the work so far.

My,My you sure are ambitious looking good for the new floor to get laid.
Almost thought the existing tile was your new floor until I saw their removal.

Have another project for Quick Tips.

Going to lay the tile today. Won't grout it till one day next week. Using a material called ECB tile membrane in place of underlayment. This is supposed to be the best stuff out there right now. It's like a rubber mat that is only 1/16" thick if that. If I'm lucky (keep your fingers crossed) I may not have to change the rollers under my slide out.

If I were to do this, I would add in-floor heat!

Coming from good ol' Germany, I am a huge fan of in-floor heat, which is as common over there as forced hot air is in this country. When I had in-floor heat installed in our FL condo, people were telling me I am crazy, this is Florida. They quickly changed their opinion, when they walked with naked feet on a warm porcelain tile floor on cold Winter and Spring days. ... ... So, if I should go through the effort of removing my original carpets and tiles to install wood flooring, I would add in-floor heat. There is a product which comes in a mat which is 1/8th inch thick and operates on low voltage 24 volts. The floor space is not much. Thus, the material cost would not be that much, either. The product name is STEP Warm Floor and is being manufactured by a US company of the same name. More info here STEP Warmfloor™: The energy-efficient choice for electric radiant floor heating - STEP Warmfloor™ ...a Step Ahead
Cheers,
Ronald
