Dust

I have a Trillium 1300. Here is Northern Michigan we have a lot of dirt roads. So, we inevitably end up with dust all over the table when we get to our camping spot. Wondered if anyone has a solution to this? I am thinking of putting some plastic on the inside of the back windows to keep the dust at least out of the interior (not the window).

I think this is caused by low air pressure because of air being pulled out through the rear or side windows. Not sure which but you'll be able to tell by the way the dust is distributed. Where the air is going out cover on the inside. Where the air is coming in cover on the outside. My back window seems to get the most dirt.

solution?

Here is my first attempt at a solution. I cut some recycled bubble wrap to fit in between the screens (which i screwed on as they constantly fell out) and the windows. I used the bigger bubble wrap as it fits snugger. The best part, it was free. We will see how it works.

Fridge and water heater vents will suck dust inside, also.

If that's where dust is getting inside, I'd be more concerned about carbon monoxide than dust. Those propane-fired should be sealed.

As stated in the installation directions.......but if replaced by a poor shop they might not reseal well. Camping world didn't seal my replacement fridge on my 21 well at all - and that was under warranty.

40 + year old trailer. Might just be time to rebuild your windows.
