We have a 95 Newmar (OK I know it really does not really qualify as a tin can) and it has a musty odor that we have not been able to kill.

Must be someone out there who has had this problem. We live in South Texas and the unit has not been under shade this summer (getting ready to correct that) and has been closed up because of not wanting rain to get in.

Please drop me a line and let me know if any body has any helpfull hints.

*Shampoo carpets
*Fabrize (sp?) fabrics
*Lay out some dryer sheets - absorbs odors
*Ionic breeze - they make one that runs on 12 volt that is ideal for RV's.
*Leave roof vents open while storing RV - have covers over vents so no rain can enter. Don't just leave RV shut up without ventalation.

A few thoughts.

I know I am about 6 months late here but I guess that is better than never?

We just bought a 73 fireball Class C that the previous owners smoked in. I mean REALLY smoked in. We borrowed our friends ozone light and have had it in there for a week and there is absolutly NO smell now.

It actually stopped smelling after 2 days but I hate smoke smell so I went for overkill.

Motels etc use ozone generators to clean their rooms also. You can rent them at rental stores. It's best not to inhabit the area while the machine is working. Great idea tyndalelady on the ozone bulbs.

"best not to inhabit the area"

No Kidding. I just went to moms to let her drive it and it has been plugged in for a week. It almost killed me when I opened the door. I dont think there was any oxygen in the rig at all.

Of course, there was no smoke smell either. lol

I have opened the windows to let it air. I will go back in another week and see if that did it. :-/

I would err on the side of caution using an ozone generator often in a motorhome/camper. Ozone eats rubber, and you may find many gaskets, seals, o-rings, etc. deteriorating...

.....thanks guys! ...I'm on it!....I know of unites that are used on houses and cars for removal of Cadaver Oders but they are dangerous and take a week to sanitize the oders away....I just wanted one to use now and then for human and canine odors in my trailer and tractor....geof kaye

Here is a website that I bought my ozone generator from: Air Zone Website

I have the XT400 model and am satisfied with it.
