2004 silverback smell

Greetings earthlings, what is the best way to get rid of that camper smell? It's in everything. I brought in the house my old black and Decker kettle and after a month it still smells of the camper. Huh!

Welcome to FRF!
I'm not sure what smell you are referring to. It can't be the "new" smell since it's a 2004.

zeolite has worked well for us in the past. It can be recharged by setting out in the sun or baking in the stove too. We have eliminated both mildew and new trailer/formaldehyde smells with it. It will not eliminate the cause but does eliminate the odor. What is the smell you are experiencing? Is it mildew, pet odors, smoke, formaldehyde, tank odors etc?

See the link that Ford Idaho posted - the smell is not from the holding tanks.
