Great pics! I love the lightness of the wood. We have cherry cabinets throughout so I will try to go lighter on the floor. The carpet is a dirty-looking tan and I've used a cream color 8x10 fluffy rug to brighten it. It does help but doesn't ultimately fix the problem. Thanks for your advice...I need all I can get. ☺️

I don't think I have a pad under mine it is just layed and stapled down. I know I don't have the the edge nail board around the edges. You can always pull the slide area and give them it for a pattern it's going to have to be bound on the edge that floats. I think that is the term. On the main floor area the carpet is just stapled down through it over the Linoleum. They put a whole piece down and only glue the edges. At least that is what I saw at the factory tour. But once again all models and even the same models are different with FR. And the carpet is just stapled down over it except the slides that is just layed on 3/4" plywood. They can also raise the slide if it will not clear but there is a limit. I would love to get rid of that cheap rug.

Hi from Lone Star Texas today. Were snowbirds this year. Going down pass Galvaston next month. We'll be back in Genoa towards the end of March (Granddaughter's B-day).

Found this youtube video. It a big step. I get the shakes everytime I think about doing the slider carpet but it's going to happen this year or the next. Yes if a new carpet is to be laid then it will have to be bound. Not sure if it can be done (bound) after install or before. I'm afraid the DW will want some cabinets or something big done during the mod.

When we removed our carpet, there was no glue anywhere, the edges were just folded under and stapled. The walls, cabinets, etc are set on the carpet. It is a real PITA to remove and pull all the staples. Took us about 6 hrs total time to cut it and pull all the staples. Used 3 or 4 blades in the retractable knife.

Help! Our Heritage Glen is a few months old and the carpet on the kitchen slide has fallen apart and is binding and ripping. It appears that due to the design when the slide comes in it just crunches the carpet which has ruined it. How do I go about getting this corrected while on warranty?

Call your dealer. That should do it.
