Mold

We seem to be growing a crop of fuzzy mold on the edges of all the cupboard doors in our Scamp and haven't been able to permanently get rid of it. It shows up over the winter months when the trailer is stored outside - we use dehumidifiers but our trailer is not heated over the winter. I would appreciate it if anyone has successfully tackled this problem and would share their solution.

I have a couple Dry-Z-Air containers to reduce humidity. I have all drawers and cupboards ( and the fridge ) open. I run a heater from time to time, with vents cracked open.
I've not had a problem, but if I did, I'd wipe surfaces down with Scrubbing Bubbles ( for bath mold ).
My trailer is stored outside with no cover.

Air movement seems to work very well for me. I live in a wet cool area. Since the trailer has always been close to my house I've kept it heated and it's under a carport so I can open the ceiling vent a bit along with the little window over the stove. Air circulation equals no mold.

I only had my Scamp for just two winters. I keep the crank windows open a little bit. No mold anywhere, I hope it continues to stay that way. Carl

Mold Control cleans up mold and leaves a film to prevent mold. But like others stated ventilate and keep humidity under control. It does not stain like bleach.

Where I live, I can't leave any windows open (or vents!). Too much rain and too much wind. So, I use Dri-Z-Air (passive). Mold grows because there's something to feed on and there's moisture. If you can control the moisture, then it sounds like the cupboard could use a good scrubbing.
