I have noticed gas fumes in the WW after towing for awhile. There was no bikes and I made sure all the vents and windows where shut. My tow vehical is diesel. The fumes go away after a few minutes, has anyone else experienced this problem?

Only after a stop at Del Taco...

But seriously, you should check your fuel station if you have one. Maybe there's a vent line running into the trailer or a loose hose.

Steve:

I had this happen in my old coach..the vent pipe, where it connected to the main filler tube was cracked and allowing fumes to come inside the coach. Now, the newer rigs' wheel wells seem to be built a lot better, so I'm not quite sure if that is it, but you may want to check all the pipe clamps and such to make sure there's no leaks.

Good luck!

I had this exact same issue....I took it to the dealer and they ran the fuel station and said they couldn't find any leaks.... I didn't say it was leaking....I said it had fumes inside the trailer after towing. I brought it home from the dealer....opened the door and the gas smell was bad. I called WW and the tech told me to remove the protective covers over the filler tubes....you know those big metal square covers behind the wheel well....as soon as I removed one you could just smell the gas....turns out they cut the filler hose really crooked so it wasn't sealing correctly....I still had issues with the dealer (although we did work things out in the end) doing a proper repair....but I would definitely pull of my filler hose cover or covers(depending on if you have 1 or 2 tanks)...and see if the problem is obvious....
