strange smell from Bedroom
well it's back ,

On the climb out of Indo to Las Vegas a strange smell returned that I thought was the muffler , but with it replaced the smell remains.

I would like to find it now prior to doing some real climbing in a few days on the way to Denver . On a walk around the coach and in inspection of engine compartment there is no smoke or smell . what ever it is , only starts after all long climb. So I read maybe the insulation in the bay but would nt that also smell out side ? Any and all ideas will be followed up on .

Hi Al,

What does it smell like? My LXi sometimes smelled wonky in the bedroom after a long climb with elevated temps. It was a sweet acrid smell. Hard to describe. Never figured out what it was. I guess I assumed it was the engine insulation or the insulation BB used in the walls.

I get it occasionally on long, hard pulls. I believe it is the engine coolant, hopefully coming out the overflow.

Hal, I do not think it is the coolant , cause if burning some would be missing , would you not think ?

I also find it interesting that you have the same issue on you LX

Also , it is not the Trans oil , that to I have checked .

I have also opened the doors in the rear where the Elec is , and nothing there either .

So David , you never did track that smell down after 4 or 5 years Smile

Al,

I replaced all the insulation in my engine compartment, but I sold the before I had a chance to test it out.

RE: strange smell from Bedroom
well it was back again today . Left Vegas around 9am and made it to the rest stop 80mm on I70 . There were a few climbs that dropped speed to 35mph . I did tell you I now pull a 18k LB Trailer ? Well you need one if you want to bring your Golf cart , MC Harley Road Glide and H3 Hummer , along with some bikes and extra parts .I did go slower with the toad , but the smell was the same .

I was water temps hit as high as 214 twice . I kept the Pyro under 750 , I guess this attributed to the 35mpr at times . Kept RPMs at 1,800 to 2,000 on climbs . All and all ,a good day on the road Smile

But the smell Remains ?

You guys are so timely, sorry I had not check this forum in a while. Good stuff. Not checking the interwebs has been good for the soul though, says the recently retired it guy.

We are in north Fort Collins now, headed to Rapid City, SD tomorrow for a few weeks to stake our flag and declare our domicile.

All our NC licence tags expired last month, so kind of got in a hurry.
