Cracked grout

Hello all. Purchased a new Georgetown XL in August. Beautiful marble floors that are easy to keep clean (big dog tracks). Unfortunately, the grout has started to crack already. Hubs thinks we should do away with the marble all together and just replace with a different product. Is this a common issue?

New, then it may be under warrantee. Have them do it right.

Agree with Doggy Daddy. Have them fix it. This should not have happened. MH manufacturers use special thin set and grout to flex a bit with the coach frame. They must have used the wrong stuff or did not wait long enough for the grout to cure before moving the floor.

If you want to take this opportunity to have them install some other product, they may charge you for it.

Good luck

Definitely something wrong there. The grout should flex. They build Tiffin porcelain tile floors on a luan base on a flat table. After they're laid, and then grouted they pick up the entire floor with a vacuum rig, put it on a trailer and send it to the production line where they again lift it to the chassis. Lots of flexing. We've had a 2008 and the 2013 Bus and run them 70,000 and 52,000 miles and haven't had a crack.
