Video Transcript for The Source Company RV Flooring Adhesive Review and Installation

What's going on, everybody Adam here, with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the glue that you're gonna use to install the Source Company RV vinyl flooring. We're gonna have two different glue options, with two different size options. We're gonna have a one gallon and also a four gallon. The one gallon is gonna cover up to about 150 square foot. And then the four gallon is gonna be about 600 square foot.

As far as the different glues, we're gonna have the 801 and the 601. The 601 is just gonna be for your wood floors, but then the 801 is gonna be for metal floors, wood floors, or your concrete floors in your garage. As you can see, we have nice new floors in our trailer. Yesterday, we went ahead and installed all this. I used to both the glues.

So, the 601 I used on half of the trailer, and this is gonna be a lot thicker. It's a lot harder to deal with, in my opinion. But then the 801 is a lot thinner, and it's easier to spread, and it did last a little bit longer, meaning it covered a little bit more square footage than the 601. The nice thing about the 801, it's gonna be a little bit easier to take up, if you need to, you just need a little bit of heat and it'll come right up. But we'll go over that, and you can see it, how it goes down in the installation we did yesterday.

Now that the flooring is all rolled out, I kinda folded in the sides, just so we're not gonna have any issues with the wheel wells. So, now that that's done, I'm gonna grab it, I'm gonna bring it all the way to the front here. And we wanna get it all the way to the edge. I wanted to make sure that it is even on both sides. So, you can use either these little wheel wells for a reference, but try to get it as straight as you can.

And, what I'm gonna do, is start on one side of the trailer, make sure it's nice and flush, start making my cuts, and then once that's taken care of, I'll do the rest of the sides. So, there's one thing that we're doing today, just because I wanna be able to wash this out. And what we're doing, is we're taking the caulk off, between the wall and the ground. So it's gonna sit, flush to that little edge, because it does kinda stick up a little bit, and we wanna make sure that it's going to adhese very well to the bottom, and stay nice and flat, but we're gonna caulk over the top of it, to seal it back up again. This is something we talked about with the Source Company, and they have not tested it, but we're gonna go ahead and do it today, just to see if it's gonna work. And so we can give it a nice seal. One tip, when you're cutting, it does come in handy to have some sort of flat edge, whether it's something small like this for the corners, or for the longer runs, you can use something flat like this. The idea here is to get the flooring as pinned into that corner as possible. So, then whenever we go ahead and make the cut, it's gonna be right in that corner, and it's gonna be a straight cut. So, especially on the longer ones, it's nicer to use a longer, straight edge, just because it's not multiple, different cuts, and you won't see as many differences in the line. So, that's just a quick tip to get this done as smoothly as possible. Another thing I found kinda useful, in certain situations, is to kinda take the trial, push it up against that wall, and bring that knife with it. In this way, it's nice and straight, as you can see, and it just really makes a really smooth and even cut. And, if we do end up with some uneven cuts, I do not suggest taking the knife, and try to cut it like this. What I found best to do, is take it like this, and kinda run your blade over the top of it, taking a little to hardly any material off of it. Just because you can always take more material off, but obviously we can't put it back on. So, just kinda run it over there a little bit, and then check that out. We are flush just like the rest. The reason why we are not putting vinyl over this little section, is because it's raised. So, if we we're to have it go like that, we're gonna have this little air gap right here. It's just not really gonna look the best. It's not gonna look flat, and it will eventually start to maybe pull up a little bit. Some stuff can get down in that little crevice, and we don't want that. So be mindful that, if you do have something like this, around your wheel wells, be sure to do what we did and not just go directly over it. Well, that went pretty smoothly. One piece of advice that I will give you is, if you're cutting off material, cut a little bit less than you think you need, just because you can always take off more material, and you can't put it back on. But, it looks pretty good, so now, all we have to do is make the sections behind you, cut those out, and of course our back little tailgate. Now that the flooring is all cut out, and ready to be glued down, that is the next step. We're gonna have two different options for our glue. We're gonna have the 801 and the 601. So, the 801 is gonna be for your metal and concrete floors, but can also be used for wood as well. But, then the 601 is gonna be a specialized glue, just for wood. We're gonna be using both of them today, to see how they fare. This is a little bit more easy to deal with. It's going to get tacky in about five minutes, and then we can put down our flooring. The other one, on the other hand, is gonna be a little bit more sensitive to the humidity and the heat. So both are going to want between 75 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit. And we wanna make sure that humidity is gonna be between 35 and 55%. Again, the wood glue, I would definitely recommend if you are putting then on wood floors. And if you are doing more of a multi-surface type of application, you can go with the 801. Both are gonna work well, but you're gonna need a little bit more patience with the 801. Well, now there's nothing else left to do, but to get to work. I went ahead and did that side first, and I have found that way, that's a little bit easier for this application. It all just depends on what kind of trailer or garage you guys are putting this in. So, what I did was, I did that side, and now I'm gonna do this side with the door, so I have a place to escape to, whenever I go ahead and roll it over. So, let's go ahead and take this, start rolling it back as best as we can. It would be easier with an extra set of hands, so, if you have them, grab them. And if you don't, I did the other side all on my lonesome, and it worked out fine. On the other side, I used the 601 wood glue, but on this side, I'm gonna use the 801, just to see if there's any differences and how it applies. There is differences between the two, but I just wanna see if it's kinda the same concept, same thickness, and stuff like that. So, what I'm gonna do now, is I'm gonna start right at the material. So, I'm gonna bend it back as far as I can, and then start putting down the glue all the way along there. And then I'll start working my way from that side, all the way back here, and then finish up here and then go out the door. And it should be good. So, let's get to it. Right off the bat, the difference between the two different glues, is one's obviously just gonna be a different color, and then the 801 is gonna be white. But, the 801 is a lot thinner, so it's a lot easier to spread out. I really liked that, and it's not giving me near as much trouble as the 601 wood glue. One little tip, one thing I like to do, is now that I have everything up against this little crack here, once you do that, stick in and then you just start pulling it away, just like that. So, now that section's good, and now we can just continue and start covering more ground. Well, now that that's done, we're gonna let it sit for a little bit. We want it to get tacky, but not glossed over. We don't want it to dry, so, keep a close eye on it. Wait about 15 minutes or so, and then you can go ahead and roll it back out, and then start rolling on top of it. Now that it's nice and tacky, you can go ahead and start rolling everything back into place. Now that it's all kinda laid out, you wanna take your roller, and we're gonna go one direction, and then you can go ahead and do the other direction. So, I'm just gonna do that, just go this way, and then start working my way the other way. The heavier the roller, the easier it'll be for you. So, you don't have to put a whole lot of pressure down on it. Mine's about 70-ish pounds, so I'm putting a little bit more force on it, to get it nice and stuck to the glue. If you do get any glue on the vinyl, all you need to really do, is take a warm, wet rag, it's gonna wipe that up, and it takes care of it. So, now that the big section is done, all I really need to do now, is this, and the tailgate right there. So, I'm gonna go ahead and get to it. Well, we are completely finished now. The glue is just drying and setting. So, we wanna make sure that we minimize traffic as much as possible for the first 24 hours. We don't really wanna have any heavy equipment, like a side-by-side, or just any heavy toolboxes or cars in here for the first 72 hours. And we don't wanna wash this, until about five days or after. We just wanna make sure the glue sets, everything is good, and then you can use your trailer as you did before. Well, it's the next day, and everything's nice and dry. So now we just need to put our accessories back in the trailer. So, you may have a D-ring like this. A lot of them come with the trailers from the factory. So, these are a little bit easier to do. You can kinda either feel around, or look at the pictures that you took before. And you'll find that these holes are pretty easy to locate. So, what you wanna do, is take an exacto knife, and just make a cross, and then take each flap, and then start cutting it around, and then these things will go right into place. And then for the holes, whether it's T-track or a D-ring like this, what I suggest doing, is going down underneath your trailer, take a little drill bit and make some pilot holes. So, then you can kinda see where they're at, and then you can go and do the rest up top, put your backing plates down at the bottom, and then tighten everything up. Well, this is what it looks like when it's all said and done. We got our e-tracks in. And, if you don't have any e-tracks in your trailer already, we do have a lot of different size options, and color options. I wish I would have put some black powder-coated e-tracks in here, but it is what it is. It still looks fantastic. It only took us about two days to get it all done. Hopefully we gave you plenty of information to help you make a decision. If you want my opinion, I would definitely go with the 801. A lot easier to install. And I just liked the fact that I can pull this stuff up a little bit easier than the 601. And that'll do it for a look at the Source Company Vinyl Flooring glue..
