Wow...I feel your pain...

Our Rv was flooded a few weeks ago and I was ready to through in the towel and sell the "metal box", but I reconsidered and I am going to keep the RV for a few more months.

Disabled hubby loves the RV life and the two pups give us lots of kisses when we tempt them with a promise of "camping". I am a sucker for the looks that the three of them give me.....

I will tell you what other fellow RV'ers gave to me....Stick with it and make sure that you are decided about the pains and downfalls of the rolling home before you ditch it...

I have dried my carpet and I am ready to hit the road again....

The water hadn't had too dang much time to soak in. Opened up the gray tank and shop-vac'd the carpet immediately, pulled it up, shop-vac'd the wood, turned on a fan on the wettest areas and slowly moved it around. Had our nice dehumidifier going the whole time, as well (shown in upper side of picture). It was dry within an hour or so. Removing the carpet was the biggest contributor.

We decided to go Allure. Should be getting it in on Thursday. My topic on the actual reflooring is here:Suggestions on flooring remodel?

I figured anything dealing with reflooring deserved its own thread, as the technical details of it aren't directly related to this issue, although it certainly was the cause of redoing the floor.

Considering the trade-offs between here, and trying to find something to rent in the area that won't blindside us with rent and pet fees, this old rig won hands down. Short of coming into some nice money, we will be in it until at least next fall. Managed through 15 months straight in her so far, we can go another year.

TdogKing - according to the RV Doctor, Gary Bunzer, and othe seminar presenters I've listened to, both the black and grey valves should be closed until you're ready to purge the tanks. Just sayin
