Gee, Almost begs the question, why didn't the manufacturers disclose that the TRAVEL TRAILER is not designed nor constructed for months/years of continual occupation, but intermittent use. I guess the out gassing also serves as a motivation for the "poor, poor" NO's residents who were coasting under the mistaken impression the Feds are obligated to bail them out of a life time of poor choices for the remainder of their "poor, poor" lives. "How did the mayor and state legislature spend all those years of federally funded improvement to the levy system?" seems to be a more legitimate question.

JMHO.
