    James, I don't think so, but maybe thats the answer to why some of the people on the forum are so wacko. There are some that have 3 eyes now. Patty is acting a little strange also. Seriously, the stuff I have seen looks like regular ol' block foam to me.

    No issue with it unless you eat it, like some squirrels on my last trailer.

    One of the things that makes our trailer better than others is that there is no formaldehyde or other poisonous stuff in any of the glue etc. After the first couple of days we have had no odors like you get in some other brands.

    I'm really sorry but as Niles put it....."are you serious"??? I don't think any manufacturer of any brand of RV would ***knowingly*** use anything that would be toxic or put out deadly fumes. Most likely against the law.

    Now if you are experiencing headaches or getting naucious then you could possibly have a clogged vent to the furnace (if you're using it during the summer??) which would cause incomplete combustion. The products of incomplete combustion are aldehydes, which you will smell and carbon monxide which you won't. Both are toxic and WILL cause carbon monoxide poisoning. If this is the case then the rig should obviously be checked pronto.

    I read somewhere if its over 90 degrees and you use the air conditioning on high fan the chemical make up changes in the foam. I believe it said instills cravings for beer / margaritas and no other side effects known at this time. ....Kenny

    You should have a CO detector in the bedroom from the factory. Make sure the batteries are good and the unit flashes its test light regularly. DO NOT blow your breath into it to test it. Carbon DIoxide can ruin the sensor.
