Another thing is an ozone generator, used by used car lots to de-stink used cars that have been smoked in and worse. Thorough cleaning first then leave this machine plugged in overnight and it smell really fresh.

Thanks Alan. I actually have access to a ozone generator for free, but was worried what it might do to the rubber and plastics in the trailer? I'm a plumber and one of the restoration co I work with will let me barrow one.

We travel with a womens personal hygiene product, e.g. "Summer's Eve". It is premixed in a small package, has it's own nozzle to direct flow. We also carry latex and nitril gloves at all times in our vehicles (helpful for rubbing in).

Wet the affected areas, rub it in and let it set for a couple of minutes, then rinse. Repeat if necessary. We keep one package on hand and there are a # of 24 hr drug stores in close proximity.

Our late pup, miss Molly and our neighbours Doby never did learn to leave skunks alone because they look so much like cats. The above worked quite well a number of times. We got the idea off a dog forum a while back.

OK I've watched this thread and bit my tongue several times.
To get rid of the wet dog smell in your trailer, first remove the wet dog. Open all the windows and vents.
Give the dog a nice bath with soap and water. Dry well and the wet dog smell should be gone.

Just make sure that you thoroughly clean the trailer before you try to deodorize, or your trailer might just smell like a wet dog that uses wintergreen chew...

I bit my tongue longer than you did, guess I win. Great minds think alike.
