What are you planning as a flooring replacement?

We were going to use the Audara Tile from Armstrong...now not sure. Tonight we were at the flooring shop and leaning to a plank wood composite or this nice linoleum she found. We don't want to do a floating floor in case of buckling once all the furniture is re-secured

I know that feeling of "selection overload" too. Here is what we finally picked: http://www.karndean.com/en/floors

It was about 13 years ago, and the floor is still new looking. For the entry steps and driver's floor we got 1/8" x 24 x 24 gray rubber dot tiles. That stuff is tuff as nails. I'm trying to locate the info on the rubber tile, but for some reason I'm coming up empty. There are many brands of rubber tile, and a few are really thin ... too thin. You want something that won't telegraph the flooring base irregularities (if any).

The Karndean flooring strips lay down with their adhesive that sort of looks like light tan syrup. The instructions said it has a 30 minute window of opportunity for placing the strips. On a warm day I found the time more like 10 minutes. So I got into a rhythm of spreading only a narrow path of paste then squishing the strips down. Once that paste hardens it never shifts. For the rubber tile, I used contact cement. Didn't let it dry completely before slapping the tile down so I could do some shifting if needed.

I realize this is a 6 month old post, but the point about the battery assist switch intrigued me. My Bounder has an "Aux Start" push button that I believe does the same thing - kicks in the 2 coach batts in case the engine batt is low. Are you saying that if I replace the push-button with an on-off that the on-board converter will keep the engine battery charged too? How would that work if the on/off button is "off" most of the time?

Anyone else have any thoughts on this idea? I'd like for my shore power/converter to keep the engine batt charged at the same time as the coach batts.

Battery Assist Switch

I keep the switch in the ON position while it is sitting next to my house and I have the RV plugged into shore power. The on board generator will charge all of my batteries that way. I turn the switch OFF while driving the RV.

My engineer friend did warn me that I may burn out the relay/selenoid switch sooner as it is always energized, but it is cheaper than a new battery.
