Floor & Brakes

Hello all,
Two things;
My 2015 8528IKWS is due for a brake job. That is not a problem but I am wondering, has anyone ever upgraded the brakes from 10"to 11" drums? If so were you able to do it without replacing the 5 lug wheels w 6 or 8 lug wheels?

Also, I am fed up with carpet in my camper. I want to install laminate floor but I have doubts. It looks like the slidouts are going to tear the floor up. Can they be raised? Has any one done this mod?

If you move from a 10" x 2" with 5 lugs on 4Ĺ" to a 12" you're going to have to go to different wheels. The brakes will be 12" x 2" with 6 lugs on 5Ĺ"

I've never seen 11" electric brakes.
