Smell From Furnace
My wife and I own a 2011 Classic 265BHS travel trailer. Our first trip took us to Yellowstone over the 4th of July. Because it gets cold in Yellowstone in the mornings, even in the summer, the first morning we were there, I turned on the furnace to warm the trailer. Almost immediately, I noticed a smell coming from the furnace vents. It smelled similar to what a new tire smells like. I assumed it was a normal "breakin" smell and ignored it. However, about five minutes later, my smoke detector went off. I turned off the furnace and aired the trailer out. After about a half hour, I turned it on again. Same results - the smoke alarm went off. I looked in the owner's manual, but there is nothing in there insofar as troubleshooting is concerned. I called the dealer and they said it was a normal smell and that it would clear up once I had used the furnace a couple of times.
This cannot be normal. Has anyone experienced something similar and if so, what did you do to correct it? Thanks!
