Garage venting
 
We have an older (2009) 5th wheel. We used to have a 2017 TH and it had vents in the garage area to open when traveling with gas powered toys in tow. This garage has no vents. Are you supposed to just open the windows on either side to vent going down the road? They crank out so don't really like that idea but may have no other choice.

I would think that as long as you didnít have any open containers of gasoline in the garage with an ignition source (pilot light of some type, electrically recycling refrigerator or freezer) while en route that air infiltration into or through the coach would be adequate to keep the atmosphere below the LEL.

YMMV 😀

If you have a modern toy (aka fuel injected), you should not have any smells/odors from the toy, unless you have a leak. I have never had a fuel/exhaust issue in my toy haulers with my motorcycles, and only have on occasion opened a vent when it is really hot outside while traveling.


Carbed toy, good chance you may need to open the vents/windows while traveling.

Just crank up your roof vents as a pre caution , good to go

I agree with above. We have never smelled any type of fumes or anything else in the garage while hauling our motorcycle (2019 Harley). Even though we have two garage wall vents we don't use them for the purpose they were designed for. I use one of the lower ones as a dryer vent when we run the clothes dryer instead.

Thanks everyone for the replies. Guess we'll start by opening the roof vent and see how that goes.
