Mold

I finally finish gutting my Scamp today. The wall behind the stove/furnace/fridge is full of mold. Has anyone experienced this before? Looks likes it's coming from the vent holes.

Mold with picture

Finally managed to upload the photo. Looks like the water is coming from the vent. Does anyone know if there is a vent with bigger blades to prevent the water from coming in? Thanks

If that is ensolite, it looks like an older Scamp. If so, my best would put this as simple condensate over the years.

Thanks, Roy. I have scrubbed it clean, and plan to seal the venting holes as I won't be using the propane fridge and heater. That should solve the problem for good.

You are welcome.

If it truly was mold rather than just years of grime, check out Concrobium.

You don't say what year the Scamp is but the lack of rat fur suggests its at least 27 years old or more. I suspect Roy is right. Years of dust coming through the vents and condensation.
