Vinyl bubbles

We took our 36.1 out for the weekend and everything worked great. I did notice a few spots where the Vinyl was bubbling...not good.

Any ideas how I could fix this?

He would be talking about the flooring. I have seen this in about every Palazzo I have walked into, Including our 35.1. Just another example of poor quality and workmanship at Thor.

Thanks.
I didn't think of flooring.
I thought maybe upholstery, graphics, vent covers, air conditioner shrouds.

I had several cuts in mine and had the dealer order me a roll and give me the leftovers. They called out a floor guy and he just cut out several sections and glued it down. you can't tell where they did it and has no visible seams. If you are not close to your dealer call Thor and have them send it out to you and call a local flooring company to do the work and send the bill to Thor for reimbursement. Thor has been awesome for taking care of this stuff.

You ever seen "It's a Jeep Thing"? This is a "Palazzo" thing. I should have provided more information. LOL

Hey trace 3. You say Thor has been awesome for you. I need a favor being you are on the right track.

Would you give Thor a call for all of us and have them do a proper fix on our large slides. We are not having much luck. Lol.

I was told by Thor today that they don't glue down the Linoleum. Only at key critical places (around registers, etc) are glued.

He said if the linoleum is bubbling, then something is wrong. I am fearful that my slide is going to catch one of these bubbles and tear the linoleum so I am going to have it logged as a warranty item.
