Rippling Flooring

The flooring on our 2018 Thor Chateau 24f is rippling in several places like it was never stretched and glued down. I know I need to bring it in for repair but I was wondering if others have had this problem and if it was repaired to their satisfaction?

I found that the vinyl flooring is not glued down in any way shape or form. All they do is staple it on the edges. Very easy to pull one side and stretch the flooring and staple it back down.

Just be sure it is not rippling for a bigger reason, like water damage.

I have the same thing on my 2019 23U. It doesn’t appear to be glued down at all.

Correct, not glued. Staples do make sense but they figure the cabinets and bulkheads will hold it in place. And you'd be hard pressed to find thinner vinyl.

Cheap vinyl flooring...

Now I know why I keep looking at the Phoenix Cruisers: they offer the option of either Hickory, or Cherry wood floors.

With the stuff that you'd probably be tracking in on it: you'd need to carry a vacuum cleaner!
(At least this is what my Missus is telling me!)

I cannot find any water leaks and am not sure how to get to the ends, The way it is rippling I would have to either remove the cabinets and the bed or see if I can get to it under the slide

Took mine in to CW and the lump on the floor was on the punch list. They had the unit all day. When I stopped in to pick it up the floor wasn't touched.

They Said they used an outside flooring contractor that was excellent but unreliable.

I said I'll leave the unit then, no plans to use it.

They said I can't leave it , they didn't have the room.

I said give me a date when I can bring it back.

They said don't know, flooring guy is unreliable......

So home I go and four hours of my time I fixed it. Guess that was CW wanted all along.
