Inflated floor...Thor-ed again

We ran the furnace the other evening and my wife exclaimed the floor was hot in one spot and ..."look, it's bubbled up". Yep, the vinyl flooring was lifted about 3/4" from the galley cabs to the extended slide-out, and from the wall at the head to the cab. The hot area was a depresdion shy of 3x10". I slid my pocket knife in for 2" and hit thin metal. The vinyl is not glued down during construction, it's held in place by the walls and cabinets. The plywood had been cut out for a floor register, vinyl laid but wasn't cut out and the register was forgotten. Hah! Luckily, here in Quartzsite is Gambler's RV surplus, salvage, used parts and graveyard. I found one in brown and it dropped right in. TA-DA !!! Click image for larger version

So glad you found an easy fix.
Makes me think about somebody's comment once; just because you bought it brand new, does not mean it will be issue free.

Good job!

You're so right, you don't buy an RV but a kit.

Iíve heard of registers being covered quite often. FYI, as far as vinyl installation, Gluing it down in all areas is kind of a thing of the past, they basically just secure it around the perimeter same thing goes for residential, itís a little bit different than the old days, but Iíll tell you what, itís a lot easier to remove when you want to!

But it was a big unnerving to watch the floor balloon. It did lay back down with no stretch marks [grin]
