2018 Intent by Winnebago

Let me vent here a moment. I've done a lot of replacing in my coach from Thermostat, Ceiling fans, F & R Sway bars, Outside lighting, Medicine cabinet, and numerous other replacement and upgrades. Some needed and some just to improve my coach. Now I have seams showing under the linoleum where the boards go together. I emailed Winnebago and they claim they don't have time to deal with my inquiry. Told me if I wanted it looked at to take it to the Winnebago Dealer. WELL, according to the dealer "TAKE IT BACK TO WHERE YOU BOUGHT IT".....Don't think so. I'll fix it myself and install a new floor. YES, I have some buyers remorse, but, I'm fixing this little RV myself. Winnebago just don't care. It's an entry level motorhome and I knew that when we purchased it. Just wanted a little shorter coach. Runs great and seems to drive ok after adding Sway Bars. Don't believe I'll buy another Winnebago just because of the people who don't have time to deal with my inquiry.
Have fun out there....Be safe!!

Hi
I would deal with it yourself as you mentioned it will be less aggravating and you will probably do a better job, why because you care. Like you I also do most of my own repair work as my coach I bought new had major problems I let the dealer fix what they could and took care of everything else myself. Currently I have decided to let a dealer replace my Awning that I have kept hanging in there since 2007 they are and have screwed me around for nearly a year now gave me an appointment recently took the coach and dropped off the day before to have it installed here I am three days later I called they told me they haven't got to my coach yet and they have a first come first serve, I argued why would you give me an appointment didn't help. Anyway point is dealers are unreliable when it comes to getting anything done and once they have your unit on site who knows if and when they will get to it.
As far as your linoleum if it has raised at the seams and is still flexible try peeling back and cleaning underneath then use a heavy duty adhesive with weight on top to keep it flat, if it's not flexible try warming first with hair dryer or heat gun so it doesn't crack. If its gapped not sure much you can do unless some kind of filler can be used that would blend with the flooring. At which point I think I would look at replacing the whole thing with a new floor product, to your liking.
Good Luck anyway keep on fixing I'm sure you can do a better job than most dealers anyway.
Kindest Regards

Thanks for the comeback.... Nobody knows how much time and extras I've added to make this a decent coach. Runs great and never overheated to Florida and back and
110 degrees in Las Vegas. Although the roof A/C can't keep up in hot weather the 12" fans instead of the 6" that Winnebago installed will make a great difference..
