Stinky awning

I have a 2014 233s and de-winterized it from our first winter storage 2 months ago. Drove down to Florida for the kids spring break (great time). Anyway, when we set up and opened the awning it was wet throughout and we noticed it had a very musty, mildewy odor. We hadn't noticed this last season. It looked visually clean, no mold or mildew. I sprayed it down with bleach-water, mildew remover and even Fabreeze (all at different times). The odor kind of went away. Fast forward 2 months and I just opened it today. Same wetness and odor. It's pretty stinky. Has anyone else had this issue? Any recommendations?

We had the same problem with our old TT, washed with the bleach/water and scrubbed the awning the best I could and the smell still seemed to come back, then I bought the awning cleaner they sell at Walmart and I did the bleach/water wash then washed with the awning cleaner and that seemed to work much better, just make sure you let it dry for a couple days and air out.
