Does anyone know how to successfully clean diesel exhaust soot that is embedded in the fabric headliner of our motorcoach? I've tried to vacuum it but that didn't help. Any ideas?
3labs said:Hi Liz,
We have a 1996 Country Coach Intrigue. I'm not sure what the fabric is and to be honest I've never heard of the headliner product you mentioned. ??? Most of the black exhaust soot is located in the bedroom (the engine is under the bed) and hallway leading to the front of the coach.
Jim Dick said:The problem I was describing was not from under the bed. It is just inside the engine compartment above the access door. I used a foam insulation that you spray into the voids. If you have soot around the access hatch under the bed that is another problem. I believe there is a large rubber gasket that surrounds the cover. I know it was difficult trying to lift the cover off. It took two people. I never had a leak there. I'd remove the cover and see if the gasket is damaged or missing.
Jim Dick said:Glad to hear you found the problem. I'm sure fixing it will eliminate the soot you are experiencing. Let us know how you make out on cleaning up the mess.
