If you've had it for three years, you should know whether or not you sprayed it with insecticide. I was suggesting on the assumption it was new to you and perhaps the previous owner or dealer sprayed it with insecticide to disguise and infestation.

Camper smell

My silverback had an Oder that permeated everything. It was caused by formaldehyde out gassing. I bought an ionizer and that helped some. Finally bought new trailer that did not have formaldehyde in it. Good luck

The original poster mentioned his Silverback is a 2004 so formaldehyde would have finished gassing off many years ago. His smell could be coming from a variety of sources such as the holding tanks and/or vent stacks, battery overcooking, dead animal in the underbelly or other hidden location, or perhaps mold and mildew caused by this;

Camper smelle

My Silverback was a 2006. It was so bad that we had to launder our clean clothes twice to get rid of trailer smells. Any food in pantry that was not canned was inedible

That is what can happen if you don't pay attention to flash flood warnings when you're camped near a creek. This was a small city park with no campground host.

Vinegar is your all-natural, chemical-free friend!

A 50 - 50 solution of vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray EVERYTHING liberally. Carpet, upholstery, curtains, everything! As the vinegar water evaporates, it takes the stink with it.

Get a bottle of essential of peppermint. Not food grade peppermint. Put 3-4 drops on 2-3 cotton balls in the bottom of a glass or old coffee mug. Not only will it make the RV smell good, it will keep out mice and insects.
