Newby with question

Thanks in advance to all in this forum for helping me navigate the motorhome world. Just purchased a 2017 coachmen freelander 21 rs yesterday from a private party and already having issues and strange things happen. I am finding off white flakes (many) in different places. First the large cargo area in the back and now on the dashboard. What is this? Help!!! And thanks!

Ok. I cleaned the stuff up prior to posting- learning already. Will send a pic when it reappears. They look like tiny fibers. They appeared on the dashboard after I ran the generator.Probably the vibration moved them about, I guess. Bugs, God awful termites? I feel sick. Spent most of my savings on this rig. UGH.

So your description has changed from off white flakes to tiny fibers...

My guess is that the rig has dandruff, but won't know for sure until I see a picture...

If you use a computer to post, then just use the paper clip icon to upload a file.
