Default telephone service

AS I stated awhile ago I can no longer drive an values for an 83 being what they are I gave my bird to my son. He has used it on three trips with out trouble.

He just called after setting up at CG to tell me that he smelled what he thinks was sewage(tanks empty) for the last ten min. or so then he saw a small puff of white smoke come out the fr.

The rest of the drive about fifteen min was ok.

What could have made the smell and the smoke?

Could the smell be coming from seriously overcharging the lead acid batteries? Check the electrolyte level in each of the cells.

I vote for an ammonia leak on the old refrigerator... Let us know what it was?
