Deep Clean Before Camping In
Not a thing in this world is ever going to smell clean if it isn’t clean. So if deep cleaning your RV is not a part of your road trip preparation, then you can forget about those nasty smells going away.
Deep clean every inch of the toilet and shower. Scrub the sink, kitchen counter, oven, and burners. Vacuum and double check the crevices of shelves, cabinets, behind or underneath the furniture, and other fittings. Deep clean the carpet, or better yet, get rid of it. Disinfect your refrigerator.
Invest in Dehumidifiers
If you really must spend a hefty amount for this much-awaited trip, consider getting a reliable dehumidifier to combat the high humidity, mold and mildew, and nasty odors in your RV. A small motor home like a camper will inevitably have an out-of-control moisture situation. Just keep in mind that even when you have more than enough money, choose not by brand or popularity. Instead, opt for one that’s energy-efficient, user-friendly, not too big and heavy, and has a longer lifespan.
Care for Your Water System
Anything that holds up water for long is a contributor to your RV’s stench. Days or even a week before your road trip, clean out and sanitize your water tanks and toilet tanks so that no unpleasant smell will emanate from them. Use the classic bleach or a specialized tank cleaning solution, but don’t forget to rinse well (twice or more) before putting water back in it.
Stray from Perfumed Sprays
If you’re used to combatting odors with lovely-smelling atomizers (or even plug-ins), sorry to break your bubble but, those just won’t cut it. Yes, they do smell good. But the truth is, they’re just masking the bad odors. Worse, they may even mix with the stench, making your RV smelling even weird and intolerable.
If you simply can’t do without those fragrances, make sure that you attend to the dirt, trash, bacteria, mold, and nasty odors first before using them.
