My problem was the outside storage cabinet door..the door actually had soaked up moisture and that was the culprit for the musty odor in the camper/bed area....he ended up putting a sealant all around both doors and also around the lock which was loose and water was entering there. He did a complete inspection of the entire trailer and everything else was great. So it is now all winterized, sanitized and hopefully problem is solved..

I'm glad you found the source of the problem and have a temporary fix. Long term the doors are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.

I have found an ozone generator to be very effective at eliminating odors.

Enerzen Commercial Ozone Generator 6,000mg Industrial O3 Air Purifier Deodorizer Sterilizer (6,000mg - Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JAP7388/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_APkYBbVAHFTS5

And thank you for letting us know you resolved the problem, and how. Too often a request for help is posted and then there is never any follow up.

I went camping for 2 weeks. Hung clothes in the two closets next to the bed only to have all the clothes wreak of must.


I am very concerned as I do not see or feel any wetness anywhere on walls of floor of the cabinets. The pass-thru storage compartment is underneath the closets yet I see not signs of water there either. I hung a damp rid bag in each closet and within 5 days there is about and inch and a half of water in each bag. I put in a brand new mattress and need to find the problem as I don't want this odor to get into that.


Can anyone please help me to figure out this musty smell. It is sending me over the top.

Thank you
I recently had issues dealing with rat that died somewhere under shower. I read about coffee helping so I bough cheap coffee and put 3 containers out in bedroom, bathroom and under shower. I also ordered some bamboo charcoal room deodorizers, but before they arrived I noticed a significant improvement within the first day. While you look for the cause you might try coffee to help with musty smell.
Regards, Ron

One thing that can cause water to enter storage compartment doors is having gutter downspouts too short. If they don't stick out about 3", water can run down the side of the trailer and eventually find its way into storage compartments. Had a Sunnybrook with this issue and installing extra long downspouts is a snap.
