Angry Trailer Smells

Opened the camper this Spring and it has a wierd smell. I thought at first I forgot to remove something from the cupboards when we cover it for the winter. Found nothing. There was however a pak of string cheese left in the refrigerator. The refrig. door was left open. Any suggestion as how to remove the stale oder?

I had also opened my camper this year to be greeted by a "urinal cake" smell!!! My wife was not happy!!! We thought we forgot something in there also, NOTHING!!

As we "unwinterized" the camper, flushing and sanitizing the tanks and lines seemed to help the odor.... not all of it though

Anyway, I had just saw something on TV that said leaving a half an apple in your car overnight will remove smoke odors, I wonder if it might work with mine and your odor....

Good luck and happy camping!!!!

How about tossing a few boxes of baking soda in there.

That would be my suggestion as well.

Try putting a couple of bounce dryer sheets in for a couple of days. A few years ago, my FIL and I came home from a fishing trip and realized a cooler full of fish had leaked the "fish goo" as my son calls it, all over the floor of his camper. We cleaned it up, and then put bounce sheets in for a few days. No more stinky fish smell!!!

I have had good luck with putting a red solo cup of fresh coffee. (Straight out of the container), in my truck to eliminate smoking odors. Has worked really well so far.
