Something on Tile Floor - Has Anyone Seen Something Like This?

We picked up our brand new 369DS with Black Diamond Package this weekend. It was pretty obvious the dealer did absolutely NOTHING in the way of cleaning and prepping for delivery. We knew we were going to take it home and give it a thorough interior cleaning anyway, so we didn't argue - we just wanted to get it home.

What we thought was dirt or dust on the floor is actually something else from the factory. It is a film or coating of some sort (looks a little like clear coat overspray). We have tried everything to get the residue off the floor - tile cleaner, acids (the kind the pro's use to get excess grout residue off the tiles after installation), and even softscrub. Nothing touches it. You can see actual boot prints on the floor and we're not talking about just here or there - it's the full length of the RV.

Has anyone else seen something like this? What could it be? I would have thought paint or other spraying functions would be away from or outside of the interior...?

Warranty??

Ouch! When I read this I thought it might be the same clear coating I had that came of easily with a razor blade. When looking at the pictures, it's not the same thing. Might have to bring it back for tole replacement.

Glue! That could be it. There's a LOT of it, but that could definitely be it. Goof Off is what I'm trying next. Thanks. I'll let you know.... (BTW, already have appointment with service to have it looked at, but might try your suggestions before giving the unit up for two weeks).

looks like dealer possibly used the" carpetmask " plastic on the floor. if used on the lino or solid flooring it will leave glue residue where you step on it. It is used to keep the carpets clean in new housing and during showings. we used it for years in the winter months and at RV shows.

Here is a web site that tells you how to remove the residue you have on your floor.
Plasticover.com
Go to the site and then to the page they have on "residue removal". Should answer all your problems. But I would print out the removal page and present it to your dealer to have him get it taken care of.
