Musty smell

We bought a used 2010 5ver and when it was closed up for awhile we would have musty smell. The back wall had a wave caused by water leak. Fixed leak and water damage musty smell is gone even when closed up for awhile.

Yes we did have water damage, a seal on the main slide was bad, but now we think we have mold Inn the walls....
I open the roof vents and windows all the time, would an air purifier work or do I need to go somewhere and pay for ionization? Smells ok when we are using it for a weekend and have candles and windows open, but come back next weekend even with all the roof vents open to let air move some, yes we have maxi covers.
And it smells all musty again...
We bought out used, love all the Windows and the layout, but looks like we are going to have to trade this winter.

Have you gotten rid of it yet? I'm assuming you have. There are two types of slides, those that leak the day you take delivery and those that leak later. They all will leak eventually.
Unless you fined the leak and then tear it all apart and replace all the damaged area this problem will always be with you.
Sorry for the problem and my parting suggestion would be not to buy that brand again, too many quality issues with all of their models. Hate to say it but it's just the truth.
