I have been following this as others have. I haven't been able to find the answer in all my readings for this:
What is the greatest offset - meaning mm you can have before the slide goes out of whack? I guess my real question is, can I be off by as much as 3-5 mm high or low when installing new flooring?

Thanks, Bob

PS. I do want to apologize if I stole this thread, but I thought many other people have been following.

as long as you don't exceed the height of original material, you should be fine.
Since these are movable structures, sometimes they break, get out of alignment, etc.
The only coaches that don't have issues with slides are non-slide coaches.

I am watching this thread eagerly as well. I am still deciding whether I want to do vinyl plank flooring or just re-carpet.

Joe, TAKE PICTURES!!!! PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES!! There are never too many pictures when you are doing a job like that....

My carpet is the last major renovation in my coach, it is 11 year old nasty forest green sun damaged carpet original to the coach. I can't wait to get it replaced.

Ernie, I so wish I had the funds to bring to you and say 'here ya go' but I'll have to re-do it myself with help from others (Whem2fish..where ya at?.....lol) and also I have to relocate my furnace vent that got stopped and lost when I put the new sofa in and took out the j lounge sofa.

Also, I have a gasser and I want to really cut down on that engine noise and heat if possible so I wanna get some of that insulating material and wrap the doghouse before the new carpet goes there. Also, I think the ONLY thing to put down is carpet on the doghouse on the gasser that will look good, it's too irregular in shape so I think the best thing would be carpet from the front chairs forward.......I think.....

This is very interesting, but again, JOE - PLEASE POST PICTURES OF EVERY STEP.....

Thanks guys so much!!!!

I've been working on getting the ceramic tile up today. Just about through. It has really been a job!

When I finish I'll post a lot of pictures. Hopefully it will help someone else!

The last coach that was here was a Winni Adventurer- gas. The dog house was removed and new high temp insulation was added. That was some expensive material, but well worth it. We also used, instead of pad some 1/2 inch insulation I had. That material had a mylar face and Styrofoam core. I put the carpet right over that. Carpet padding would have been a little softer, but I think its' better not to sweat.

What does that mean? Does padding make it sweat? Is a MH different than a fiver?

Inquiring minds want to know...

no- the heat coming from the engine and thru the floor is what we are after to reduce. The client expressed concern about the heat going down the road. If you don't have a motor home, you don't have to worry

I am so glad to have found this thread. The floor on our rig which we take delivery of on Monday needs new floors. Previous owner took out the carpet and put in wood looking floors which are coming up. Also removed the carpet under the slide and the floors are all scratched up and damaged from no protection. Once we get it we're going to have to rake everything out, pull IP what ever was put in and make whatever repairs to the subfloor and put in something that will look nice and handle dogs.

Any suggestions o?n products to use, type of floor and assistance would be wonderful. Never sis any sort of DYI on a MH.

I hope we are not opening a can of worms but my main goal is to get it done right and fix the issue with the slide scratching JP the floor. Guess putting carpet back down will be the way to go with the right scrap. Any suggestions ther

Thank you for this thread and any help.

Shaz

Hi Ernie, I just removed the old carpet in an 84 Vogue II diesel and found there was some sort of rubber heat shield over the carpet pad, around the engine area only, which I want to replace.

What would you recommend in that application? I sent you an email about CDX vs Ply as well because I have some water damaged plywood I'm replacing.

I'm still in the demo and repair mode, but I am also installing engineered wood and will be gluing it down after reading several of your inspiring posts.

Thanks for all your assistance!

Because of my tile installer's reluctance concerning the Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty, I have decided to use 1/4" Luan over the OSB. It will be glued and screwed securely.

Buy a case of construction adhesive. the seams and countersunk screw heads still need to be filled.
I believe the rubber product was mostly for sound. If you can get it up- trash it. The sound coming up from there is quite inaudible from close to 40 feet away.
Then urethane all your wood. I put the urethane on the back of the boards. Less mess with my old crooked fingers
