DW and I have noticed that the floor tile is very dull. Assuming this is a real grouted ceramic tile floor, I know there are sealers that you are supposed to put on new ceramic floor tile. Has anyone here used any of the sealer on the tile in your Winne?

Not all tile floors will take a sealer. Depends on the make/type of tile. E-Mail Winne and ask make/Name/type of floor, Then either e-amil manufacturer or check with a tile store (not Home Depot/Lowes). Many of the sealers will make the floor very slick. Most will need to be re-applied periodically. Some tile is meant to be a bit "dull" (dull durface often means better traction underfoot). If you put the wrong sealer down, you could have a huge mess. Someone once asked my Dad to fix someone else's tile job because the wrong sealer was used. Huge pieces of sealer just kept flaking off the floor. My Dad said to get the moron who sealed it to fix it. Turned out the owner had sealed the floor. I know my Dad didn't fix the floor. He said it was more hassle than it was worth (turned the grout a different colour & would need to be cut oat and re-grouted).

Asked the same question at the factory and they said not to use anything because the grout is epoxy.
