Does anyone have that stupid carpeted plywood cover on the bedroom floor?

I replaced mine with a 4" PCV pipe cut out about 100 degrees...little over 1/4 pipe cut. Best $22 I spent so far.
Gained almost 5" of extra foot space! No more tripping over it at night!!! Pics...

Just reno'd my 06 class c. In the back, I replied the carpet and, instead of the carpet covered, random sized boxes, I cut 45 degree plywood strips just big enough to convert the pipes. Covered then with carpet. Much more foot room.Click image for larger version

On my side of the bed there was a huge carpeted plywood cover...it covered the 12v, water and 110v utilities. Made it extremely hard to walk along the bed... but not any longer

Nice Modification!!!! If I had that same condition, I would follow your lead.

Any way you can run the water pipe under the floor ? The wiring certainly could .

Seems like that all was an "oops" / afterthought solution .

It could be done but this was a quick and fast solution

I would not run the water line under the floor. It is intentionally run inside the house to protect from freezing.

I think the PVC pipe idea was the ultimate solution. The OP probably evaluated it already, but if possible, pack everything tighter yet and use an even smaller pipe.

Again, that is a very nice modification for people with such a condition.

I'd bet there are already other water pipes under that floor , from fresh water tank at least .

I'm sure many class c's are different but in mine, the pipes go directly up into the coach from the tanks so there are no pipes underneath. Again best for avoiding freezes.

Actually, I take that back. The outdoor shower pipes are exposed. I'm about to replace my outdoor shower valve due to a leak. I'm guessing from a freeze. Going to have to look at improving the 'freeze resistance' on that. Part of me wants to eliminate it altogether. I don't use it much and you can't exactly take a shower with it unless you lay on the ground! It's kind of a pain. I occasionally bump it while loading unloading the compartment it's in, causing it to open partially.

Just got back from our first trip after a major interior reno. Love the changes. Especially the room gained in the bedroom by reducing the size of the pipe covers mentioned in this thread (and moving the bed over an inch or two).

My View had no water lines under the floor, except at the outside service area. Everything including the water tank itself was inside the coach. The water tank was under the stove.
