Thanks Bobby...it seems that the laminate flooring is kinda waterproof to minor spills. The planks have a locking system that keeps everything in place. Once it's locked in the small tongue and groove system won't allow any water to get to the floor thru the flooring. I used the glueless type. I just measured twice and cut once. The area I covered used 1 while box and 1 plank. It really is simple. I should have done it a long time ago. Good luck in your endeavor and post some pics

Awesome.

I think I did the Hickory, but have forgotten. For the little amount actually used in an RV, it's not terribly expensive even at retail price...plus there's so little waste. It's not like you have to buy an 8' x 20' piece and then start cutting out for cabinets, dinettes, fridge, etc.

I agree that they snap VERY tight and let no appreciable amount of liquid in. I am willing to loan a couple of preteens who will spill various types of sugary beverages on your new floor, completely sealing all joints to be impervious to dog urine.

I used the allure aswell. Went with std cherry. Then found no hd or lowes in my area (6 stores total) have any cherry 1/4 round or stair bull nose. Still have not finished trip but the tile transition is in as well as ended up using metal stair edging.

Imurphy907 you can try for some plain trim of the proper cross section you are looking for and stain it yourself.

Thanx MT, you made my day on that! But I still think they have a water based glue that will do the Job ! Still chuckling . Bobby

Didn't work on the RV itself, but the Tow Vehicle.

I installed a transmission cooler. Surprised it didn't have one since it had every other cooler imaginable.

It's always great to do something with the MH! Yesterday I changed the oil and filter in the generator and exercised it. Last week I added a sound bar to the TV. I need the sound bar because last year I took the old giant, heavy, old school tv out and replaced it with a nice 32' flatscreen, but the sound quality was very bad, so of course as any logical thinking man would do I added an upgraded sound system to it.


Last month was getting the Grand Cherokee towing set up. Purchased a towing system, brake buddy, and had the tow plates put on the CG. A real must have IMHO


I just want to mention last year I also replaced all interior lights with LED lights. LOVE IT!!!


Next, I think, is a full solar panel system with pure sign wave invertor and two additional 6V batteries. This one will be a little more expensive than the rest so I need the DW to be on board with it. If I whine loud enough and long enough it will happen before July.

Just buy parts for it here and there. First I got the controller. Then the wire. Then found a panel. I sized my wire to the controller 45amp so I can add more panels later with out changing anything. Now I have plenty.

Finally got my fridge back in , running on ac now pulled down to 10 degrees in the freezer and 34 in the fridge in about 2 hours, so I guess the new Dinosaur boards are working. Had to replace the floor the fridge sits on as the PO left it sit in the woods for God knows how long with no Vent cover on the roof, and Winnebago loves pressboard! I own a glass shop and used some leftover 1/4 " Omegaply I use on storefronts, 2 layers of aluminum with polycarbonite in the middle. Doubled it up and screwed it together then sealed all up nice and tight. Much stronger then the pressboard and cannot rot. Will try it on gas tommorrow. Bobby
