All the bushings replaced on the coach and I replaced the chassis bolts. We camped this weekend and as I took the toad off, I noticed the slight odor of burning rubber.mi checked all six tires and the belt. Everything looks fine. Any ideas?

Could the smell be coming from the toad?

Was the smell noticeable only at the rear of the coach?

Check around the exhaust system for any loose wires or hoses that may have come in contact with the exhaust system.

Charging system and AC power OK?
