Columbus underbelly insulation

Dealer had to remove under belly so Lippert could come repair slide out box. Once repairs we're complete. Dealer days have to wait to put back together until they can get a special suit because of insulation material is too hazardous. Anyone know what this material is?
Thanks
John

do you have to wear a special suit when you are camping in it?

Just a quick note. STILL WAITING. Dealer says they got their haz mat suit today. I mentioned I thought it was funny they didn't need it to take it apart. I am so done with Camping World of Spokane WA.

I recommend goin just across the Idaho border to blue dog rv. The service department great. Bought my TT from them in November. I was so happy with them I took the trailer back to them to have some warranty work done. I live in Moses Lake it's about a 2 hour drive from here. Had my TT back I'm just over a week. They had most my parts in stock. They updated us by email 4 times while it was there. 👍

The insulation is just cheap rolls of fiberglass batting. The only time it's hazardous is if mold is involved. Then you need to wear extra good breathing protection as those cheap thruway white paper masks don't cut it. A body suite is overkill as you now know. Your dealer person is misinformed, lying to you, etc.

Remember you don't have to use selling dealer to get warranty repair work done. You can use a different dealer or use a mobile RV tech that will come out to were your RV is located. The story of we wont due warranty work on your RV is you didn't buy it from us is only partially true. There are plenty of dealers willing to do the work. Get busy on your phone and make the calls to find out who wants your business and who doesn't. The guys that want your warranty repair business also will earn your parts and accessories business. It's up to YOU to find more than one resource for RV repairs. Both during your warranty period and after. Getting hijacked by your selling dealer's service dept. sucks. It wont happen to you when you have a couple of other choices to go to.
