Dizzy in my new rig

I am wondering if anyone else has become dizzy just stepping in their rigs..
I am wondering if it is a stabilization issue or a construction material off gas issue, or me..

If I spend two minutes in the kitchen I get dizzy.

I plan to air her out this weekend and see if I still get dizzy.

Any thoughts?

I thought about that and re leveled in the yard just to see.. I think the rear scissor jacks allow the rig to wiggle.
Thinking about putting jack stands under the rear frame rails vs. Putting down the stabilization scissor jacks

Fire up the furnace and air it out good. We had a lot of "construction smells" that can't be good to breathe. Some are more sensitive than others. My furnace bothered me the most till it burned in a while but we still had glue and formaldehyde smells for a while when it wss closed for long periods.

Thank you Mike.
I have been running the AC as it is 85 here for the last two weeks.. I will have her in NC next week and am sure the furnace will be running there.. if temps drop here enough at night I will fire it up.
I do have smells strong still too.. although I have had the rig only 1 month..

I think the heat and wind where you are, will help it off gas quicker than if cold. Open the windows when you can and see if that helps the dizziness.

Are you a young or older person? I ask because when I was 60 I would feel a little get dizzy hanging up my coat. No other symptoms, I shoveled snow, walked around and played golf without noticing anything. Then my doc heard something on the stethoscope during a check up and sent me in for an angio. They found a blockage and put in a stent. No more dizzy hanging up my coat, probably nothing to do with your situation, but just though I should mention it.

yeah you have an inner ear issue most likely, could be a light case of vertigo. Since you probably don't have a good horizontal visual reference your brain relies upon it's vestibular-cochlear input to resolve your spacial relationship. If your inner ear isn't working right you may then get dizzy.

Go see an ENT, they have a simple test to see if this is your issue. Good Luck!
