RE: Allison transmission service, lewisville Tx area

Inland Truck in Irving did mine. Also had them reprogram Jake from going 6 to 5th- not a severe jolt as it was going from 6 to 4th gear

RE: Floor replacement

If your installer doesn't have a clue about slides- find one who does

RE: New floating floor: shouldn't it feel solid??

It was a true floating floor. New carpet was put on the slides and everything else was Allure. Pilot and Co-Pilot chairs were removed and anything else that was on the floor. The 1/4 in. gap was left along the walls and the 1/4 round trim was attached to the wall not attached to the flooring. The shop did everything correctly, it was the product that was bad. They definitely lost money on us. I hope that answered your question. :) We learned from Ernie about flooring. We had a floating floor installed three times by a professional rv business and everytime we would take it out and have cold evenings, the floor would pull apart slightly and stay that way. The floor would look beautiful when we would pick it up from the shop, but the first night out in chilly temps, it would look like ****. They finally ripped it out and will not ever install in a rv again. Good luck. A question: Was it TRULY installed floating or were there "fixed" items on top of the floor. A floating floor in an RV is a HUGE amount of extra work, as every piece of furniture installed on the floor must be installed on a "platform" just a slight bit thicker than the floor and a molding used that ONLY, repeat ONLY adheres to the wall. Any other method is a lot easier, but results in a "should be floating" floor that can NOT FLOAT and WILL warp/separate. Inquiring minds want to know. yup- allure is junk

RE: New floating floor: shouldn't it feel solid??

Floating floors were designed, primarily, for sub floors that were not smooth or for do it your selfers that didn't know how to properly prepare a floor for a proper glue down application. They were designed for residential and some light commercial installation. They were never intended for rolling items- slide rollers, etc. Or bouncing down our magnificent highways. They move- I don't like movement. Or the hollow sound. I have had coaches come to me with that installed and have witnessed first hand the shoddy workmanship and cheap products. Cheap is what you get- cheap. When it fails-and it will- then install some quality.

RE: New floating floor: shouldn't it feel solid??

So much wrong information is given to consumers. Allure flooring is junk. Period. Don't buy it. The reason it is so cheap- well- its junk. Your call. Every floor I install, and that is engineered wood adhered with urethane adhesive will NEVER come up- unless you wreck the coach. After 44+ years in the flooring business I have almost heard all the myths that these dealers try and pull the wool over consumers eyes. Floating floors were introduced for the do it yourself crowd that has no clue how to prep a floor for a glue down application. Glue down makes everything rock solid- no give, no hollow noise. Some folks may like this method. I will never install any floating floor.

RE: Wobbly Front seat?

you may have a 15/16 nut in the center. If you remove that, there is a convex washer and that should be mounted with the raised portion UP- then reinstall nut and tighten till you feel a little resistance when you rotate the chair

RE: Remove slide to replace floor covering,Update .

No slide ever needs to be removed to add flooring. Those dealers that say that want your money.

RE: thinking of replacing rugs in RV

OLD WIVES TALE: your cabinets, slides, walls do not need to be removed to install new flooring. PERIOD- don't let dealers, etc con you into spending your money when you don't have to

RE: thinking of replacing rugs in RV

On the assumption that urethane adhesive has a pungent odor: The EPA has made the adhesive manufacturers eliminate all offensive off gassing. I have had NO clients complain about off gassing of adhesive. And I cater to full timers- and I let them stay in the coach at night.

RE: thinking of replacing rugs in RV

I am saying that it can be sanded if you use quality engineered wood, not the inferior products from the box stores. I NEVER said anything about damaging the subfloor. going on my 44th year in the business. And- booked solid installing engineered wood in coaches till Nov 2016. I do know about this
