Vinyl flooring lifting / air pockets under flooring

Our 2005 Sunova is really showing its age, inside and out. For some reason, the vinyl flooring is now lifting at the interior steps and pretty badly in front of the kitchen slide. I'm wondering what it takes to replace the vinyl flooring, which runs from the doghouse all the way back to the split bathroom. The big question to me is how do you replace the vinyl flooring to areas with no ready access, such as under the kitchen slide, and maybe even under the sofa/dinette slide, which might be carpet over vinyl? Anyone here have a picture step-by-step process on flooring replacement, just to see what I might be in for?

Or, is their an easy way to re-glue the vinyl without pulling the motorhome apart, maybe a process of injecting something right through the vinyl and pushing out the bubbles?

Thank you. -RT

No easy way. The worst part is that the flooring is often laid before the furnishings are finished so walls, dinettes and other things go over the vinyl. Same with carpeting. You will have to cut up close to the items in the way using a utility knife and perhaps a steel rule. After replacing the vinyl use a piece of molding, either vinyl or wood, to cover the end. Be certain, before starting, that you are dealing with the vinyl coming unglued and not a separation between different layers of plywood. That gets more complicated.
