When we can. I like to keep a dehumidifer running in the RV. I set the dehumidifier in the tub and leave the gray water drain open and a hose back into the woods at home.

You can also wet down the cushion covers with plain water or some kind of cleaning solution and then use a shop vac.
Don't forget that you can just beat the cushions with a stick - outside of course - then vacuum them.
I keep heavy covers on our dinette seats and on the sofa. These are washed after every trip except quick weekend trips. I give the seats and sofa a light spray with Lysol, then recover with the covers. So far no funky odors of any kind (mold, human, cooking, animals) and we have three cats. We've had this BRS28 for a year now and both camp and snow-bird in it.

I agree. It works very well and we keep a can in the RV alongside the Lysol.

It's very humid here in TN in the summer months so not only keeping the RV spotless, including the stove and fridge, but spraying it too is the way to go for us.

We also use a dehumidifier when the RV is in storage but instead of using a drain hose we check it every few days and empty it. This one also filters the air keeping it fresh.

Shop Frigidaire 30-Pint 2-Speed Dehumidifier at Lowes.com
