We have the new flooring installed in the bedroom, bath area, hall and kitchen!
Today we have to finally make the decision on how to handle the living room slide. We have carpet under half of the slide, and the old vinyl flooring on the other half. The slide does not sit on the vinyl part at all, but sits quite heavily on the carpeted area. We don’t think we can remove the carpet from under the slide and if we cut it, it will bunch up when the slide goes in and out. We have about decided to cut it right up to the slide, then staple it down there and put some glue on the edges to keep it from raveling. That way, the slide can still slide on the carpet until it gets to the new flooring area. We will have to see if we will need to put something down on the new flooring when bring the slide in and out, to prevent any rubbing on it. We won’t know that until we get it.
We went to Lowes yesterday and got some trim pieces. They are light weight and actually appear to be made out of some kind of styrofoam. They look just like real wood, but are light weight. In a RV, you need to save weight any way you can! I was completely exhausted yesterday and all my muscles were sore! It was partly due to the fact that I got up at 4am to try to see the shuttle launch, and partly because this is hard work and it’s kicking my butt! So yesterday was not real productive, but I did manage to finish the last 2 rows in the kitchen.
Today, it’s raining and then we’re supposed to have a cold front. I guess we’ll be able to work okay since what we’ll be doing today doesn’t involve going in and out much.
