Thankyou Lee, I will check our garden centers here in Port..hopefully this will be a quick fix but we have been talking to some RV repair persons and they think the only true way to rid it of the odors is to remove everything to the bare walls and once you repair the leaks in the fiberglass then you need to paint with a odor sealant type of paint..they say these little trailers can really retain some nasty smells, after all she is almost 30 yrs old....thanks again for all the suggestions, we really feel welcomed into the world of "Vintage Trailers".

I think you would find that an ozone generator will eliminate those odours.

I am seriously considering purchasing this product:
HD Ozone Generator - NATURAL Odor, Smoke Smell, Mold Remover | business, industrial | Calgary | Kijiji

Consan Triple Action 20 has many uses but as far as deoderizing it is supposed to kill the mold and mildew that actually causes the odor instead of just masking it. Good luck with your project.

About Cosan Triple Action 20...


This is nasty stuff. Be sure to read the use warnings and wear appropriate protective clothing, face masks and gloves etc. Here is the MSDS sheet, refer to Section 8 for warnings.

Nasty stuff? One of the uses is to put a few ounces in with the rinse water when washing clothes to remove any odor that the laundry soap wouldnt remove. It worked great for that and I sure didn't suffer any ill effects the many times I used it for that purpose. Of course you want to read the instructions but it takes just a little bit of that stuff to a whole lot of water. Best Price: Consan Triple Action 20 Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chlorides 9%

From the Manufacturer:
"This product is primarily intended for use as a Fungicide in the Turf & Ornamentals sector."

See Section 7 Storage & Handling: "Causes irreversible eye damage and skin burns"


See Section 8 Personal Protective Equipment of the MSDS Sheet

MSDS pdf Here:

http://pdf.tirmsdev.com/Web/23/37098...?download=true

TIRMS | Label-(M)SDS | Consan Triple Action 20 by Brandt Consolidated Inc.

Sounds like very nasty stuff for cleaning the inside of a small FGRV where skin contact, eye contact and inhalation is a much higher risk than pouring 2 capfuls into a washing machine.

Have you read the label on this product? TIRMS | Label-(M)SDS | Consan Triple Action 20 by Brandt Consolidated Inc. Of its many uses besides being used as a fungicide it can also be used on hard surfaces as a multi purpose disifectant, sanitizer-deoderant for use in homes, nursing homes,hospitals schools and institutions. Im not sure if you have a personel problem with me even though you don't know me but this is the second time you have critisized me in these forums.

Interesting reading of the MSDS & PDI's on this product in that the comments and safety instructions for use are the same as I had to deal with for 100's of products at work. Dang, if you read MSDS's on most things you use weekly around your house you'd be shocked by what they say. Nothing is stated other than eye and arm protection, not even a respirator. The same info you would get for using bleach in your clothes washer. It's not even flammable but if I were to use this or anything else with a pungent odor in an enclosed space I would be sure to use a fan for air exchange.....just cuz.

Nope, nothing personal, I am known to criticize what I perceive as being bad ideas on an equal opportunity basis


I often read the MSDS sheets as well as the Labels for suggested products that I have not heard of in the past, and a product that is 20% Alkyl* dimethyl benzyl ammonium chlorides is just plain nasty stuff.

Add to that, there is no mention whatsoever on the label for surface cleaning other than hard surfaces, and it mentions twice that surfaces have to be thoroughly cleaned before use and then kept wet for 10 minutes to be effective, all counter indicative for cleaning the inside of a very small and enclosed FGRV, who's wall coverings are not hard surfaces.


I was General Services Manager of the Lake Chelan Community Hospital a number of years back and, even then, the suggestion that my housekeeping staff use a disinfectant that had to stay wet on the surface for 10 minutes would not have been acceptable. Most Health care facility disinfection products typically work on contact.


I spoke to my ex this morning, who is a Nurse in a retirement home in Chelan, and when I mentioned the product, she said that she had never heard of it, and indicated that a product with those MSDS warnings & application instructions would not find use in a health care facilities in WA state.


Yes, I read the label, and I still have a real aversion for using products for uses other than intended, especially when other, less toxic, options are available and should be tried first.


And there is always this part from the label:
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Actually it is clearly stated on the product label and MSDS sheet to wear a respirator when using this product.
