Mold in the slideout

I'm new to the forum and have a question about moldy smell in my driver side rear bedroom slide. I'm sure it is going to be costly but need info about getting rid of the smell. I have a 2005 HR Scepter. Does anyone know anything about the Wildwood repair facility reputation or suggest a closer facility to my present locale. I'm presently in Myrtle Beach SC and want to get this resolved. Any suggestions??

I have a 2002 diplomat and when I purchased it used, it too had a mold smell. Chances are you have a leak you haven't found. I have 2 draws and a closest in the rear right,next to the bedroom slideout. I pulled the draws out and found the moisture and the source of the smell. The net result was to remove the carpet, replace a large portion of the water soaked wood (floor and wall). The wood was like a sponge. The source of the leak was the window in the slide out. The leak had probably been there for a very long time and the water ran the width of the bedroom wall from the front of the bedroom to the rear closest Hopefully your problem isn't as severe, but you need to find the source of the smell and you probably have a leak

Kj, I'm surprised you didn't get any feedback on Wildwood. You may want to repost in the Monaco owners forum.
