covering and insulating the engine cover

Everyone her is so helpful. I have a 1999 winnebago adventurer 35ft. I tore all the carpet out and putting in laminate except for the cockpit. I have 2 questions. The carpet was glued doen with no padding, seems like it would be better to have padding for noise insulation and maybe just glue the carpet around the edges, any thoughts?

Can you/should you insulate the engine cover? I am going to recarpet it and want to do it right.

When your talking about insulating, were you planning to do that from the engine compartment? Or from the interior of your unit?

J C Whitney has the insulation mats for that.
Use contact cement on the exterior of the doghouse. Don't use berber carpet. You will have many outside corners to cut.

Ernie's right they should have engine insulation at JC Whitney, most of it comes with what they call PSA (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive). This means by removing the plastic backing on the insulation you'll be able to push it into place. Just make sure where your putting it in the engine compartment is good and clean. Buy some foil tape for the seams as well. If you do a good enough job here, probably shouldn't even need to worry bout the interior.
