First two questions, for the flooring experts, of what will probably turn into a few more as this project progress.
My RV is a 2003 Newmar Dutch Star and I am in the process of replacing the carpet with eng hardwood. As you can see in the picture below the step well cover comes up and is flush with the floor. The top step stair nose trim needs to be attached over the hinge. I can't imagine there is an adhesive strong enough to hold it to the stainless hinge and would need to be held with screws. But thought I would check with anyone that has tackled this project. I know I will have to trim the part of the stair nose so it does not go down the riser. Second question, the grey seam that's in the picture. It has a rubber consistency. Anything special I should do with it, will the urethane adhesive adhere to it? Any other tips or tricks of the trade are welcomed. Feel free to stop by and pull staples if your in the neighborhood.
