You may have vertigo. See a doctor if this continues.

I had a Silverback that had so much Formaldehyde out gassing that we had to get rid of it. It made my wife and I both ill.

Forget the A/C and open windows to air it out. The more air moving through the better. Virtually everything in the unit outgasses in the beginning because of the thinners and plasticizers that make things work. When they evaporate out the problem goes away.

I have found that our trailer has a bit of rocking that will give me a random, slight dizziness for an hour or so if we have not used it for a while. I liken it to getting sea legs after getting on a boat and just getting the inner ear accustom to the motion with no horizon for the eyes to work from. I have also found I can lessen it by making sure the scissor jacks are down firmly so the suspension doesn't have a chance to sway.

If you're not connected to any power your CO/propane detector may not warn you of unsafe levels especially if the batteries are dead. CO is odorless and can kill. Open windows & doors & vents and air out well BEFORE turning on anything electrical.

My goodness at the medical recommendations, lol. One guy is wondering if you have a posterior fossa tumor pressing on your brain stem causing slurred speech and numbness, or maybe an acoustic neuroma, or maybe a pineal track ependymoma, the other guy thinks you're syncope secondary to god knows what. Go see an ENT specialist before these guys kill you off. It sounds like a mild case of simple vertigo. Truth be known, it can be anything. Maybe you are just chronically dehydrated...Go..

No, it is not ongoing. Only in the rig. I have set an appointment with ENT to see if that may be the issue..

Dragging the rig to NC mid week for a few months.

Many of the materials that are used in the construction of RVs contain formaldehyde [fabrics, paneling, etc] which is not good for anyone. Mobile homes are infamous for this problem. It subsides over time, but can be really bad when new. I have emphysema and it really causes me big problems.
Open it up and air it out as much as possible. I don't think there is a pure fix.IMHO

Could it be an overwhelming sense of euphoria caused by your presence in your new awesome RV? Rapid heartbeat followed by shortness of breath, then a little light headed...I experienced that in my new RV for a while. Just a theory! :-)

Hope you figure it out and can enjoy your new toy!

I think you're just getting too excited by going in your rig, just wishing it was time to go camping...

tdst51. The OP must have entered numerous RVs while shopping around and gets the ?? from going into the one he purchased?I'm sure some here can give him the name/es of a good hospital.

So you work at Duke or a health care provider?
