Stretching Linoleum

I have the leak repaired on the back end of our 2009 25FB Int. I had to roll up the linoleum to get to the plywood subfloor, of course. We have been debating whether to install and new floor covering (looked at Allure from Home Depot) but our first choice would be to use the existing linoleum.

However, when I rolled it out flat again it is wavy and appears to be shorter (more space around the edges). I thought that laying it flat again it would smooth it out but having had it that way for several days has had no effect.

Is there a way to stretch the linoleum to get it back to it's original shape? To remove the waves and reduce the gap around the edges. Maybe someone has had this same issue and developed a way that I have not thought of.

You can use a Heatgun and heat the underside of the linoleum while rolled just enough to soften the material (in case you heat it a little too much and discolor it, it will be hidden). Roll the section out that you just heated and apply foot pressure (walk on it) to flatten it out until it cools. You might have to repeat the process in a few spots.
