Small rip in the floor

Hey all, we just purchased a 2017 Coachmen Chaparral 392MBL a few weeks back and just noticed a small rip in the flooring a few mm's long and was wondering what one would use to glue it back down?

I was planning on getting a small syringe from work to inject the glue into the rip and under the linoleum then smooth it out but am not 100% sure what to use.

Thanks for the help!!!!!

Check out Lazer bond (as seen on TV) it may be just what you need to make a clean repair, Ive used it to repair sky lights.

If it is just a cut you might use seam sealer for vinyl flooring. If it is a corner tear use contact cement under the edges and use a roller to press it down, then seam sealer where the edges come together after the contact cement sets.

We had a cut in the flooring of a new Jayco and discovered that they had used too long of screws to fasten the table to the floor in the slide and it was slicing the floor when we closed it. The dealer tried to glue it down and it would not stay and they had the idea to send a gentleman out that had a business called Dr Vinyl. This guys specialty was leather interior on classic cars and when he was done you couldn't hardly tell there had been a problem. If the dealer hadn't tried to glue it down first I don't think you would have seen anything on the repair. It worked for us!

I used a 3M vinyl and leather repair kit I bought at Walmart (automotive section) to repair my motorcycle seat, really easy product to use. When I had a gouge in my camper floor from the slide out, the dealer called Dr. Vinel to fix it, you cant tell it was there.

It is but I don't believe flooring is ever covered under the warranty

If you are going to use glue under the vinyl,,, be careful it does not osse up into the cut !!! Seam Sealer is defiantly the best thing to top it with,,, some super glues can yellow,,, Seam Sealer will not !!! You may have to find a store that sells floor covering supply's !!! Maybe the Big Box stores do ???
