Ever wake up after 3 hours...

Ever wake up after 3 hours, wondering why you have to go to the bathroom, only to find a strange noise caused it...Maybe like...the gray tank overflowing out of the tub because the bathroom sink didn't get fully turned off for some reason before going to bed?



Oh well, gave us a good excuse to finally tear out the old carpet so we can replace it. Was going to go with wood laminate, but the floor isn't the most level, and I don't have the time or energy for that with school in full swing.

Still trying to get everything straightened out after that fiasco. As you can tell, stuff got flung everywhere to get it off of the sopping wet carpet so I could tear it out, then moved back so I could tear the rest out, then moved around periodically with the dehumidifier in full swing so the wood would dry quickly

Always remember to make sure all faucets are completely off!!

Maybe the cat turned the faucet on while you slept? Needed a drink, perhaps?

If your in full hook up why would you have grey tank closed and if you have no hook ups wouldn't you hear the water pump running ?

It was closed because we had just moved the day before from the federal campground we were hosting to our wintering site in town, and forgot to open it.

Plus, we have to pretty much keep it closed in the winter up here in Montana, or else the water trickling through the hose will eventually freeze it up. Already had an issue trying to close the valve last week because ice formed around the inside of it. Lots of hot water running through it and slowly working the valve to finally get the ice to leave!

I feel your pain.

I had our MH set up about 40 miles away and our daughter and SIL had it for a few days. GS left the bath sink faucet running a little and when they returned a few hours later...Wasn't as bad as it could have been but pushed up the floor replacement.

Never trust a cat that has been hitting the bottle.

Oh, I took the grandson off of the Christmas card list.

Oh, I know it will pass. I always look at the silver lining of things. This could be an apartment and we just lost any hope of getting our deposit back. But no, it is our place, and the cost of replacing the carpet will be far cheaper than a deposit :]

You take the ups and downs of things, and remember it is your place, you can modify (or destroy) it in whatever way you please, and you have no one to answer to but yourself and your wallet :]

While at Home Depot today (we normally hit up Lowe's), to pick up some insulation for winter that is a thickness that Lowe's doesn't normally carry, we decided to check out flooring for the heck of it. I had completely forgotten about Allure flooring, which is something I didn't see any type of at all at Lowe's.

Seeing as Allure gives the look without the rigidity that typical wood vinyl has, we may actually go for that instead of carpet. Better looks, easier cleaning,, and if it gets cold during the winter, that is what man made slippers for, right?

Good luck getting the mess cleaned up. Have you thought of the water rotting the wall footer?
Progressive totaled one of our campers after the same thing happened to us.

They make some fantastic looking sheet vinyl floors now. Might look at that as well.
