I pulled all the carpet out of the scamp
last night.. And I only found one spongy area that needs repaired in the rear corner (the leak was caused by a bad caulk seam along the aluminum exterior rib and a leaky 12v water pump.... 3 seconds and some silicone, and both leaks
are fixed. ).. I am going to cut out and re-glass the 12in x12in rotted area. The rest of the floors are amazingly solid and water-stain free..
I am going to install a floating vinyl laminate floor (HD brand "allure"). Now the question is.... Should i coat/paint the floor with something before i install the flooring. My thoughts are the following..If there is a leak, or spill?? Wouldn't it be better to have a good moisture barrier to keep water from soaking in the OSB and compromising its structural integrity? I was debating coating the floor with fiberglass resin. But that seems like overkill, and to be honest... i don't want to be inside the scamp
while that those chemicals are KICKING OFF. I already have a gallon of porch and floor paint
(FLOOR-LEX) that has worked wonders on some of my home porch remodels. It withstands water and moisture, and it doesn't peel up. Does anyone see any downsides to painting
I also am going install some floor drains in all four corners,,, these will be recessed in the floor under dinette benches and bunk/couch base... These drains will be pvc pipe with a threaded drain cap.... (just in case there is a spill, leak, or faulty connection in water tank). I will be able to raise or lower the back/front, and all water will drain out.
I was also going to re-resin the underside of the scamp
... Has anyone done this? Once again,,, my thoughts are that it will just seal anything up that needs re sealed..
Has anyone installed a "floating floor" in a camper (i.e Allure vinyl laminate) I am debating whether i should glue it down, or let it float. Pinning it to the floor with some toe strip trim. This floating floor is to keep things from raising up during expansion and contraction from temperature fluctuations.
Thanks in advance for any info... Rookie here.
