Gas leak, AS now reeks

I had a gas leak while I was gone for a few days. The trailer now reeks. Simply airing it out doens't seem to be doing it. What is the best way to get rid of the smell?

What type of detector does everyone use?

Thanks
Steve

More important than the odor is the leak itself. You must fix it now unless you want to blow up or have your trailer burn down. Do you know where the leak came from? I read that you were contemplating repalcing the furnace. Did you loosen a gas line or have you kinked and cracked a line?

Ive identified the leak and fixed it.
I wasn't the one considering replacing the furnace.

I've been airing it out. I may try and completely empty the trailer and scrub everything but I'm not sure what sort of cleaner to use.

The odor should clear out in a day or so. Open the vents and windows. The "smell" of the chemical added to the propane to make it stink is much more potent than the gas itself.
