Never liked the green carpet in our Class A. Bought dye and prep from Americolor and tackled it this weekend. New charcoal colored carpets look amazing and as-new. Was actually not that hard. Boiling hot water was the key with vigorous brushing. I was quoted in excess of $7K to replace. Spent less than $100 for dye products and sprayer. I am a new fan of this approach.

Americolor carpet dye. Put in some one step dye prep, Mix with super hot water;add dye, and spray. Then brush the carpet to get the dye deep into the nap. Not sure how to add a pic.

I agree the initial results may be misleading, but really, how do any carpets look after a year of use? The dye took to the fibers, that is obvious. BTW..... I am not shilling the company. I had a problem that I assume wasn’t unique, and never found a economical solution on any RV forum. This approach solved my problem and did not create new ones.

If you will follow these directions exactly, it is very easy to post pictures on our forums. One of our moderators, 1492, developed this photo posting app to post your pictures. It works for other internet sites also. There is no need to have a separate hosting site for your pictures in order to use it.

It is very simple to use.
1. Upload your picture from your computer to the app.
2. Copy the resulting URL.
3. Paste that URL into your post without ANY changes. No additions or deletions.
Your picture will then appear in your post and be properly sized for use on our forums.[emoticon]

wow, looks great. is that "dark" grey? looks sort of medium in the pix. how did you do such a good job on the non-flat curved areas, watching the firm's how to video, looked tough enough on flat floor surfaces and curved vertical ones would seem difficult.

The darkest area is the part already dyed. You spray it on with a sprayer.
