RE: Slide-out Floor Rot

Just curious Stickdog, when you replaced your floors what did you end up putting on the underside of the new wood - plastic wrap, solid plastic sheet or the epoxy paint you mentioned? Mine had the plastic wrap on it when it went bad and the dealer replaced it with the solid plastic sheeting on the underside. I used waterproof epoxy paint

RE: Consequential Damage option on Exclusionary Warranty

My advice is place the cost of the policy in an interest bearing account for the possible future need.

RE: Slide-out Floor Rot

I just replaced the floor in two of my slides bedroom and the large dinette, sofa slide. Both had water damage at the ends not in the center that area was solid. This was my first RV so I was not looking for this problem though I discovered it not long after purchase and my original thought was that it was minimal. Over the last 5 years it got to the point where I knew I would have to replace the floors and thought I was going to sit down at the kitchen table and wind up on the pad. On our way to Alaska last spring I stopped at Lowes and bought a 3/4 sheet of plywood to keep that from happening. When we returned from Ak I began the replacement. It turned out the plastic wrap was all that kept me from going through. The cost of materials for the two slides were about $500.00 Marine plywood, waterproof epoxy paint and fasteners. I preformed the work at a friends place with a full shop of necessary tools though I performed all the work till we wrestled in the new floors which with a couple hands only took about 10 minutes. The removal of the old floor was more work and took more time than installing the new.

RE: Average carpet sqf in a RV?

I recently recarpeted the dining room slide and replaced the carpet and vinyl in kitchen/ living room with Luxury Vinyl click and lock wood grain plank in our fifthwheel. Stainmaster carpet was 27.99 per yard, $269.00 tile was 7 cases at $49.00 per box, $343.00. Binding for 14 ft @ $1.50 per ft. Pad was supplied by SIL who still bangs in rag. No labor I'm retired floor coverer. If the OP's quote was for labor only I'd say about right.

RE: AT&T, and 30 gigs for $150/month

Depends on where you are, we have both Verizon and ATT. Verizon provides more connections than ATT. Five and a half years from South Florida to Alaska, East coast to the Pacific Verizon has more connections.

RE: Basic XL Super Duty Question

You may get an answer here but a Ford forum will most likely get it quicker.

RE: Planning a trip to AK from Indiana

We entered Canada at Sweetgrass last spring up to Macleod. Then the road less traveled 3 over to 22 and north to Ca1. AB 22 runs parallel to AB2, very scenic with little traffic. Spent a couple days in Banff then up the Icefield Parkway to Jasper. You could then either take the Yellowhead Highway 16 east or west. We drove east to hook up with the AB40 to Grand Prairie then west to Dawson Creek and the start of the Alaskan Highway. Had we gone west on 16 we would have picked up 97 in Prince George and north to Dawson Creek or if adventurous over to Kitwana and the Cassiar, however you miss the beginning of the Alaskan Highway as the Cassiar joins it just west of Watson Lake. We did return by the latter with a side trip to Stewart Hyder to watch the bears catch salmon. There are only a few options once you get up North though there are several side trips if you have the time and inclination. Your best bet is to get a copy of the Milepost and review your options. The Milepost, although updated annually basically doesn't change the possible routes. Our plan is to return in 2019 now we know where we want to spend more time and to explore those places we missed.

RE: Slide Floor Replacement

navybanker, the woven plastic on the bottom of your slide is not glued it's wrapped and stapled . When I replaced mine I used epoxy waterproof truck bed paint on the marine plywood. The funny thing about the manufacture used wrap is that its purpose is to keep water out but it actually keeps any that gets in from getting out which contributes to the failure of the slide flooring.

RE: Slide Floor Replacement

I replaced both the bedroom slide floor and the main living room slide floor with marine grade plywood this past summer cost less than $500 for materials. If your not confident in your abilities best to go with the professionals.

RE: our 1st alaska trip

If you have limited time a Caravan is a good choice but you are on their schedule. If it's raining three days when you get to Denali NP, what do you do when the skies clear the day you're set to pull out? I was apprehensive on our trip but basically there is one road around Ak with a few sideroads, hard to get lost.

RE: Headboard fell off. Suggestions on how to re-attach?

DW didn't like the upholstered headboard so I did my magic and copied one we saw that she liked in oak. Two strips of velcro hold it on it does rest on the mattress platform. Its been on for the last 2 years without problems 20,000+ miles including a round trip on the Alaskan Highway.

RE: Augusta RV

I was wondering, reading their specs they have 8000 axles but only G tires. That should be enough if the GVW is 18000 as the pin would most likely be 3600+.

RE: I39 to I57 to I55 snowbird route help. (WS south.)

There is Cut Rock State Park just north of Rockford easy access from I39 and down near I39- I80 Starved Rock State Park. Starved Rock is closed during gun deer season, so check if that is in your window of travel.

RE: Bedspreads

When we purchased our gently used fifthwheel it came with the matching spread shams and throw pillow, which from their condition seems they were never used. We redid the whole BR, headboard, window treatments and donated the whole lot.

RE: Need advice on Fla. this winter

The West is a lot larger than Florida also snowbirds are down for the duration not a cruise by of Yellowstone or any of the other NP's. Most find a spot that they're comfortable with and return year after year. We're returning to a spot we spent 2 winters at and making it a third and have been booked in since last year.
