    Noooo Grunter, it doesn't apply to you because you're a bitumen bunny and the likelihood og any water ingress due to offroading is highly unlikely

    Hosing out the vinyl is a myth & I wouldn't advise anyone to do it. The felt under the vinyl soaks up water like a sponge. The vinyl then stops it from drying out. After a while it smells worse than a gorilla's armpit & the only cure is to pull everything out. When I had a leak into the cab, hanging the felt out to dry took close to a couple of weeks before the smell dissipated.

    Humble apologies to all affected by my last post. I do not recommend hose in, hose out, either.

    Wet underlay needs to be properly treated and allowed ample time to dry.

    I used to have a franchise getting smells out of cars in car yards, and I'm well aware of the wet, mouldy smell. Made me dry reach a few times. lol.

    It is definitely not a hose in, hose out job.

    One day @Clunk, I'll show you photographic evidence that my ute is a fully sick, wet, off road weapon of mass destruction.

    I said "one day". PML.
