The ozone works by oxidizing everything it comes in contact with.
It is well known that leakage of ozone generated either by UV or electrical discharge spark and used in hot tubs (for biological / sanitizing reasons instead of chlorine) tends to destroy rubber / silicone sealing in the tub enclosure / housing very quickly. CAUTION IS IN ORDER whenever there is not sufficient air movement to dilute the ozone concentration. It is very effective in removing odors, but at a long term cost / risk.

Yet there is nothing else like it for removing old trailer funk. Allowing Uncle Lester to park a trailer out back of Cousin Myrtles place and "living" in it for the six years before he passed . . . well, we can all be grateful for commercial ozone generators to change the aura, the halo, hello, the stink.

Does it get rid of them long term or do the odors come back?

From my experience with using one for 4 years the odor does not come back unless the source of the odor remains. Off gassing from carpet, for example, will continue until the carpet is removed or it "runs out of gas". I used the ozone generator in my house after new carpet was installed, for about 3 years off and on, more in the hot summer. Research how ozone works and you will see. It will neutralize perfumed deodorants in a motel room until they spray the room again.

I've learned that many "older" rigs may have mice/rodent infestation between the skins of the trailer... tough smell to deal with for sure.

You are not supposed to be in the room with an ozone generator.
It's bad for you, not sure why since thunderstorms always made the air fresh smelling.
Mine runs for two hours, max, then shuts off. I air the place out and then return.

Absolutely do not breathe in an ozone enriched area!

I knew a guy who had a commercial ozone generator in his boat, he went inside to do some work without shutting it off and airing it out. He nearly died! He was hospitalized for weeks, coughing up tubes of dead bronchial tissue, and months later still had not made a full recovery.

Thunderstorms and air fresheners produce negative ions, which charge floating particulates and odor molecules causing them to stick to surfaces, hence the fresh smell.

A commercial ozone generator for decontaminating a musty confined space like a trailer is NOT an air freshener or toy! It's a serious tool that produces DANGEROUS levels of ozone in confined spaces. Always air out a treated space before breathing inside after ozone treatment.
