Joe- Do you have rollers on your slides that contact the vinyl tile you installed when the slide is moving in/out?

Some of the rollers were attached to the slides and others were attached to the floor under the slides.

Do any of the slide rollers contact the vinyl? Do they mark the floor tiles?

I can't really tell if they're touching the vinyl, but if so they are not making any marks!

When the carpet was in the bedroom there were marks in the carpet, but don't see any on the tile.

All you guys have me fired up about replacing floors. I removed all the carpet and ceramic tile from the front of our coach. Going to keep the carpet in the bedroom. Getting up the tile was the hardest. I finally used a air chisel that worked very well. Plans are to install hardwood. It came in today. Excited about getting started.Click image for larger version

Have removed the carpet from the slide since pictures. Plans are to use stair nose on the outside edge (BOH instructions) and hardwood there also. Not looking forward to fitting the boards around console and drivers area.
Rain here so I couldn't pick up new flooring until after Christmas.

You will need to add a piece of plywood to the slide to insure that the stair nose covers the edge of slide ramp. The thickness of plywood varies as what is important, to have the new stair nose rest on the main floor when side is extended. Sand off the back of stair nose if there is any polyurethane on it. The nose will not adhere to plywood with that poly on it

Thanks Ernie. Having never been there, plan is try to fit the stair nose as flush with the floor as possible. Am sure there will a ledge/thickness of stair nose(after sanding) above floor. I would like to get rid of that strip of polyurethane that was on the slide. Plywood may be the answer.
Like I said, "having never been there" trying to work things out in my head first. I do appreciate the assistance. Will post pic's as I go.

Phil, that air chisel was a great idea. I didn't have access to one when I did ours!

After rapping my knuckles with the hammer using a chisel, I had to come up with something better. It really was a life saver. Glad it is all up. Now for the next stage.

Yep, after busting my knuckles a few times, I got good with that hammer!

Wish you were close by, Vette. You'd get some free labor and I'd get to learn a few tricks to doing this project

Are you going to lay it diagonal?

No, plans are to lay it long ways. I saw a picture of one diagonal and the BOH didn't like it. End of story there.
Not as bad of job as I thought. Getting up old flooring was the biggest chore.
