Geez...a real eye opener. Those D bugs ruin my summer every year. Still haven't found a spray that doesn't make me cough or feel tacky!

Thank you all for the replies.
I have been searching the RV surplus guys on ebay for a similar color top and have found a few but not with the beveled edge. I will find something to replace it with for under $100 that will be close enough for a trade in this spring. I will post my results. I still find it hard to believe a air freshener can do such damage to an RV.

That is exactly what I heard too, that is why we always unplugged the dang thing. Time to switch back to the old, non plug in type.

Sorry the article link was not included. I thought I had pasted it, however I guess my CRS kicked in for a second. I appreciate you bringing the omission to my attention.

Here is the link I cut and pasted from

https://www.yahoo.com/autos/how-some...334848277.html

There are quite a few supporting articles on the internet, many of which are credible.

Following is a DEET analysis article from the National Poison Information Center.

I have never tried this product but it does look promising for laminate repair. You might even be able to partially mix a couple colors to achieve a marble look. They claim it dries hard.

Try Johnson's Creamy Baby Oil. I used it on a recent two month trip and bugs didn't bother me.

I would be afraid that the solvent would melt the thermo foil on the counter top like the air freshener did. Thermo foil is not like a standard house laminate. Thank you for the recommendation though.

Just think what it does for your lungs. It's like walking down the soap isle at the grocery store, eyes burning. Use your vent fan or install one

Unplugging these such things are on our "leaving home" checklist. Big fire hazard.

It's easy enough to do on your own. Just copy a paragraph and paste it into Google.

This is what I found.
