Had that happen to a 97 Tahoe.. Smoke came out of the defroster. I pulled the blower motor and there was actually water in the housing. This caused the electric blower motor to start shorting out..terrible burnt electrical smell. Replaced motor and resistor. Cleaned leaves and debris out of the air intake area in front of windshield. Problem was resolved.
Good luck with your issue.

Now that's a good point. It does tend to linger a while...

And the mental perception of that "aroma" really lingers.... Until you know positively for sure you are holding the culprit in your hands AND understand exactly "why" it happened... Not much instills more "concern" in my little mind than that "aroma!"

On That. OTTFFS... We are in FULL agreement!!!

Hey, on another note I got great service here at Thousand Trails Carolina landing today. When I pulled in there was a tree that kind of hung over the road, rubbed up against the RV fairly hard, I mentioned it to the park manager who, though not "officially" here (it is his day off) was here on his "other job" (He washes and waxes RV's on the side). In less than 30 minutes that tree was DOWN.

(Of course it was not cut down...It was blown down, that is why it was hanging over the road, it was just starting to fall over) No injuries, NO damage. Great service!!!!!
Home is where I park it!
