Is this a do-it-yourself project?
Does anyone know if there could be some sort of warranty coverage?
Any useful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Happy New Year.
Won't be covered under warranty as they are only 1 year on RVs. Usually the vinyl in RVs isn't glued down like in a house. It is laid out and the cabinets are installed on top of it. Because it isn't glued down it can develop splits like you have discovered.
I would use this as an opportunity to lay down laminate wood flooring like Pergo or Bruce which just clicks together and can be laid right on top of the vinyl. No need to use the underlayment usually used with this type of flooring as the vinyl does that for you. Transitions are available to meet up with the carpet. Can also buy bull nose stair trim if you need to extend it into the stair area.
On our old motorhome we pulled out all the carpet and laid down some Bruce flooring we got cheap at a liquidation outlet store. Was the BEST upgrade we ever did for that rig. So much nicer looking and easier to keep clean.
