And how are you going to keep from de-mildewing your lungs?

Don't ask me why I ask.
Well, I was planning to wear a respirator. And of course I now have to ask "why do you ask"?

I think he was trying to tell you to be careful because of respiratory infections associated with mold.

The mold in our Scamp never bothered for the 2 - 4 day trips we did for several years. Then we tried a 3 week trip trial taking the Scamp instead of the Avion.

Upon returning I developed a nasty upper respiratory condition. In the course of doctoring and treating, it was decided that it was probably a mold that set it off. It was explained that the body will tolerate exposure for just a short time with little effect. But at some point the body is overwhelmed.

So in the course of tracking down the mold, I also found out how bad chlorine is to the respiratory system.

A respirator with filters for chlorine would be good. Also, don't spray it on. Use a brush or paint pad or paint roller.

Thanks, I appreciate the advice. Did you wind up de-mildewing your trailer or just taking shorter trips from then on? If you de-mildewed - or if anyone else has - does the mildew get under the foam (EPS?) insulation too? We weren't planning to remove that, just to soak it in bleach/water (which we will now be applying with a roller).

Just as an aside, the mold colonies under the vent hood were at least an inch thick and were producing their own special slime - mmm mmm.
