Joe,

When you do the bedroom, I discovered when I removed the bed pedestal, that there were two wide unprotected boards on the underside of the pedestal which slide on the rollers that are attached to the floor at each corner of the bed facing the dresser. I also found flakes of wood that had been shaved off of those boards due to wear. As a result, it made grooves into the boards and caused the slide to be lower to the floor than what it was supposed to be. I chose to screw on a thin strip of Plexiglas to the face of the boards for protection. A thin strip of SS would probably be more durable. If the Plexiglas starts to deteriorate, I will remove the pedestal and redo it with SS.

Richard, are you talking about the base of the bed? I'm a little confused!

Joe,

Yes. If one side is lower than the other that's exactly what I found when I removed the bed base/Pedestal. One board had gauges in it whereas the other was OK. I installed the Plexiglas on both boards.

Here is my question. We have carpet and vinyl tile in the front half of the MH. If I replace the tile how does one go about replacing the tile under the slide outs? Also what about carpeting under the slide outs?

My MH has three slides. The long slide, with the dinette table & chairs and the couch, has carpet on the slide. There was carpet on the floor in front of this slide which stopped at the front edge of the slide.

The kitchen slide had ceramic tile in front of it which extended about 2-3 inches underneath the cabinets. I had to chisel out all that tile and yes, it was a pain to get it out from under the cabinets! After I broke it loose from the floor I had to go outside under the slide, pull the rubber seal away from the bottom of the slide, and use a metal bar to reach under the cabinets and push the broken tile out the front! You say you have vinyl tile in the front so you have a different problem. I don't know how you will be able to get the vinyl tile from under the kitchen slide.

The bedroom had carpet that looked like it may have gone all the way under the bed. I just took a razor knife and cut the carpet as far as I could reach under the base of the bed. I cut the Luan board to extend maybe 1/2 inch under the base of the bed and the installer extended the tile that far, so you don't see any of the old carpet still under the bed.

My bride has informed me that this is in our immediate future for our coach.

1. If I understand it correctly, the installer glued each tile to the underlayment?

2. Any particular reason that you went with this type of 12x12 vinyl tile squares vs engineered wood or vinyl planks?

Yes, each tile is glued to the Luan board. We just liked the looks of the vinyl squares laid in a diamond pattern. No other reasons.

Mr Joe,


Wow what a difference.
I know the Bride will love how easy it is to clean up after some thing gets spilled on it or tracked in on it

Great Job .

Thanks! We're going to replace the rest of the carpet (slide, cockpit, base of bed, etc.) soon. I think that's gonna make a huge difference too, since it will match the tile.

Thank you.

The installer did a very nice job with the excellent choice of product made by you and your bride. You should also be commended for your perseverance in the art of staple pulling.

Looks great. Thanks for asking all that you did and thanks for sharing the process. I am thinking my job may not have the long term results I want and will have to revisit this thread when I go back to re-do it. :bang head:

We'll see!

Did you have the vinyl tile grouted? I'm curious how that's holding up.

No, the 12" square premium vinyl tile we used had the grout lines on the edge of the tile (on two sides of the tile).
