    I have a 1997 Beaver Monterey and cannot locate the source of a fuel smell in the cargo areas. Took it to a service rep and he could not find the source either.....HELP! any suggestions/tips?

    You know some of these fuel tanks have a filler cap that holds quite a bit of pressure. When you remove the cap to fill the coach you will hear the vapors escape. Could be that the heat has caused an over pressure in the tank and the cap is just venting.....You might want to loosen the cap and see if that helps... Just a thought..

    I have a 1998 Beaver Monterey and notice the same thing on the passenger side.
