Vinyl Floor Adhesive

Hi all,

The vinyl flooring in our 2005 Safari SS is peeling away from where it is attached to where the toilet is mounted. It's not coming away from the floor anywhere, just from this "raised box". I'm not sure if this raised area is part of the black tank or not.

At any rate, I'd like to glue it back down and wondered if anyone here has had the same problem and came up with fix that will last. I was going to hunt around Lowe's/Home Depot for some vinyl floor adhesive or maybe some Gorilla Glue.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

There is a tile adhesive that is used for vinyl self sticking tiles (used in addition to the "self stick" on the tile itself). I've used it with very good results. It's in the vinyl tile aisle at Lowes. You need to put it in both surfaces and allow it to cure about 1/2 hour before pressing in place. In the same area they have a small flooring roller that comes in really handy also - fits into tight spaces.... Good Luck....

Hi, kevino. I think several people had this same issue that you are talking about. If you go to Search, and search for "Favorite Mod under $100.00, then go to page 8 / posts #100 and # 101 you will see pictures of what and how I fixed mine in my 2005 Safari 25-B. Note: glue didn't work.

I just tried to search that way and got no where. Click on my name and scan down second page until you find "favorite mods for under $100.00

I carefully pulled up the self sticking tiles in our Trade Wind to replace the floor. When the new plywood was installed I found some linoleum (old) in my garage and applied a thin coat of it to re-stick about 5 - 6 square feet of the vinyl tiles. I must have still gotten too much adhesive on it for the stuff kept oosing up through the edges. It took several trips walking on them to remove the excess but.......those tiles are down!

Thanks Bob! I need to check out that thread some more for other tips as well.

I considered the quarter round idea...but I thought the raised part that the toilet sits on is the tank. ??? I don't want to drill/nail into the black tank.

Kevino, Your tank sits on a framed riser. There is no way to puncture your black tank. You would be screwing into wood. Another option is liquid nails. I just discovered a leak I believe is in the the roof or possibly a window frame. It is running down the inside of the wall and coming out near the dining area on the floor. Want to trade problems?? Good Luck.
