Musty smell from pantry

We have a 2019 321RSTS and always have a musty smell when it is closed. We have tried putting a box of baking soda in and it does not help. We only have non perishable items in the pantry. Any suggestions?

I bought my unit used (2017) and its a 28.5 RSTS. I have a weird smell in mine too that came with the unit. Underneath is the furnace and water heater but everything there is dry and tight. I chalked it up to food left in there from the original owner. Its not too bad but I cant get rid of it either.

I had the same musty smell in our 2016 317 RLOK. Took it to dealer they said it was a water leak from the Water Heater and Shower. Hasn't smelled since.

Try a saucer of coffee grounds. Can't hurt.

Thanks for the suggestions. We tried vinegar and the smell returned. We then removed everything and wiped the entire pantry down with Lysol cleaner. The smell returns in about 8 hours. I now believe it is from the shelves. May be the glue they use. Next step will be to try charcoal .

If the odor smells like mold or mildew than clean with bleach and water.

Than buy Concrobium spray. This chemical stops new mold from growing in the future for several months. It is not 100% effective especially in cracks and crevices.

Last suggestion is to buy air dryer tubs. You can get them at Lowes and elsewhere for about $3 each. You can also get them at Dollar Tree for a $1. They have white crystals that absorb water from the air.

Put one or two in each cabinet and replace as they absorb all the water into the crystals. This helps with any enclosed space that can get moist and cause mildew and mold.

Avoid spilling the used chemical tubs. Not toxic but very hard to clean up.
