Palomiono Solaire 278, 2013, 1 slideout
First I am searching like crazy through the posts for a solution. But first, I was reading some of the disheartening stories and have to throw this in about dealers/makers/owners experiences especially regarding crappy floors. /// Question at end ...
I have the same soft floor issue, 2nd ower, it was soft when I got it in 2015 and I was in too much of a stupid hurry to ask questions. Fast forward, finally took to Colin, MI early this year, did a pressure test, was more or less told it was junk and it would cost more - at FACTORY - than to just buy another unit. After getting over the depression and let down, I started reading, talking, getting help on this forum and have been able to fix - so far - most problems other than the floor.
Want to hear something rich? I stopped at the gas station leaving town and ran into one of the workers and he said "oh did you just come from Palomino?" Yep, I said. This dude went off on a tirade about the quality and how much things have slipped since Berkshire Hathaway bought them out. Funny how much one can learn from someone on the inside. Of course I read about all the lawsuits back when, but being a 2nd owner. Tough Cookies for me. Lesson Learned. CAVEAT EMPTOR. And don't be stupid when buying something if it doesn't seem 100%r (that is on me).
Maybe I should just return the favor (karma), go buy a brand new RV on credit and then skip out of town and blame COVID (joking. Sort of). We were raised to work hard and trust a handshake. Too many crooks. No wonder nobody trusts anyone or anything any more. I 'll stop there. I'm starting to sound crotchety .....
With having a slideout and mushy floors down the middle of the high traffic area, I was looking more and more at the idea of using a penetrating epoxy or resin
Watched several YouTube videos, but just a little leery about dealing with chemicals and my competence level. But it seems like a better fix than trying to lay down osb.
Does anyone have any link or feedback? Should I first tear off the bottom cover and get real good look at it? Part of my fear is punching holes through the floor, as per the videos, and not going through the bottom cover. It also looks a little difficult injecting goo ... I can see my hand slipping or getting too aggressive and the goo flies up into my eyeballs. lol I have a tendency to 'treat everything like a nail..."
