Chips falling onto bed...

Our 2021 Sundance Ultralite 242RK has been towed about 4,000 miles so far. Every day on the highway a new batch of chips or cuttings falls on to the bed, it looks like it is most likely coming through between the overhead cabinet and the front wall. They look like a mostly white plastic material, maybe from the roof or outside walls. Has anyone else experienced this in a new RV and can anyone tell me when it stops? It's very annoying going to bed and finding a bunch of junk that needs to be swept off. Much worse than someone eating crackers!

Just so you know there is never an end to the debris falling from the ceiling. Our last two fifth wheels , and our current one... have this same type of debris falling from the ceiling vents in the back above the couch, and on the bed their entire time we owned them. Our debris consisted of foam, and sawdust. Pretty harmless, but rattling down the road causes it to fall out the roof panels.

We don't have anything falling on the bed luckily, but it took a few thousand miles for sawdust to stop dropping onto our countertop in the kitchen. It was from behind the cabinet and there would be a nice pile for us to clean up after each trip. Just keep in mind that they seem to do zero clean-up during the build process. We had quite a few walls that we had to scrub because every time we touched them, we were getting fiberglass on our hands.

We have been full timing almost 4 years and @ 30,000 miles - we still get stuff out of our vents. It has slowed down appreciably, but we still get some every time we move.

Thanks for the replies. I guess it is what it is, need to add a vacuum cleaner of some kind to the kit I guess!
