Unhappy Tile Floor Grout

I have a Georgetown XL 377TS. My grout is cracking and the servicing Camping World in Fayetteville,NC doesn't seem to be able to figure out how to solve the cracking grout problem. Even have a cracked tile. I am sure I am not the only 377 owner with this problem. Please let me know if anyone has had success fixing this. They have even suggested sending back to FR.

I would call Forest River and find out what they suggest.

I never could understand the practicality of ceramic tile and grout in an RV. It just doesn't seem like a good idea.

Should use epoxy grout.It will hold up.
Most of cracked tiles occur being installed poorly.
Rv flexes alot but with the right mortar and grout it should be fine.

I had the same problem. That was the main reason we went to the Goshen rally this past summer. They came in cut out the old grout and replaced it, I think they use a new grout with a little more rubber in it. They even replaced three tile, it looks great now.
