Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Help- I spilled toilet sanitizer in the camper! I can't breathe in there

I spilled about two tablespoons of liquid toilet sanitizer (contains formaldehyde) on the carpet in the wardrobe closet. I can't even go in the camper without my eyes watering, throat and lungs burning. It's parked in the driveway with the Fantastic Fan going 24/7. I've tried baking soda and cornstarch, and also diluting it with water. I went through several towels adding water and blotting it. Finally, I ripped the carpet out. The pad was glued down and used a crowbar to try to get it out, but there is still some pad. The camper is STILL not safe to be in for more than a few minutes at a time. Does anyone have any home remedies to neutralize this poison? I sure appreciate your advice-- thank you so much!

Find a professional that deals with toxic cleanup. Formaldehyde shouldn’t be something the layman (you and me) handles.
