So has anyone tried the lemon ammonia to reduce the effects of Formaldehyde? Will it cause any problems in the camper like being more prone to mold or other odors?

Mine is really bad right now. I might try it along with airing it out.

We had the same problem with a 5er of ours. In the hot weather, it's really, really bad.

I was told by a Camping World Service Manager that if a coach is left out in the hot weather, unused, for a long enough period of time, the "fumes" basically are drying out the adhesives in the cabinetry & wall paper (or whatever the stuff is). If left for long enough, this drying out of the adhesives will cause those things to de-laminate and they can come apart.

He advised to always have our unit plugged in to shore power & turn the A/C thermostat on 90'. Ever since then, no fumes/formaldehyde odors.
