Cleaning textured floor?
 
Just returned from our maiden voyage in our 18 EC. We went nearly 3 miles to Markham Park in Sunrise, Fl. Came up with a list of things to make the upcoming big trip better.

Our floor has gotten really dirty though and I don't know how to clean the textured floor. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks, Mark

This may not be what you wanted to hear, but when I took my Salem out for it's first voyage and it got very muddy, I used my Hoover FloorMate wet vacuum on it. It's my main, #1 cleaning tool for in my house, since I have an old dog with a weak bladder that pees on the kitchen floor daily. That thing cleans the floors really well, the spinning brushes clean textures well, and the fact that you're applying hot, clean water and then the machine is picking it back up (along with the dirt) seems to be a good idea in theory. It's not a cheap solution, but it works.

I really, really, really dislike the textured floor in my Rockwood and I will be breaking out my FloorMate before we load everything up this year. I had already given that a thought, and now you've convinced me. A mop won't do the trick, because you can't get the dirt out of the tiny crevices and I don't exactly want to get on my hands and knees with a scrub brush either. FloorMate it is!

Hmmm. I don't have a Floormate. I called Forest River and they told me to use Dawn dish detergent (that really didn't help). I wonder if a long handled scrub brush with a bucket of Dawn and water followed by my wet vac would do the trick.

At first I thought the non-slip floor was really cool, now I am beginning to wonder. Sure would be nice to damp mop and be done with it.
