Why?

Is your floor "out-of-level" or is it "out-of-plane". There is a difference. Or, is it both?

A little better explanation of what you are doing would be helpful.

Okay let us reverse here momentarily.

You are screwin' with a thirty year old modular. The floor fields are sagging as they all do in manufactured housing of that vintage. Now you are trying to use a rigid floor leveler to resurrect a substandard non-rigid floor system.

You don't bother to include your location in your data and now you ask:

Are you kidding? Where are you getting your floor-levelling information? Certainly not from anyone here. Where are you? Alaska? Australia? South Dakota? Kentucky? How is anyone supposed to help you with the information you are providing thus far?

So...you don't know where you are either?

You really don't think the information you have offered can help someone to help you do you? None of us here are mind readers!

Did you come for help or did you just come to get your feelings hurt?

You'll have to excuse Bud. "Getting laid" no longer has any meaning to him, other than in relation to tile.

It'd be helpful if you'd give us some more information. Is it a modular/pre-fab house, or a double-wide trailer? There's a significant difference in the way they're built.

Honestly, I'd suggest you consider something other than laminate. Self-leveling concrete is probably not going to work for you, and other cures are going to be a little tough to pull off - and expensive. A good carpet may be your best friend.

Bud is a bit course at times. Perhaps he has a dry sense of humor. That should be put away before he touches the keyboard.
