Don't run the ozonater when you are in the trailer. It can't deaden your smell if you air out of the trailer prior to living in it again. Ozone will oxidize anything it touches as well as decontaminate and sanitize. This is something I consider a last resort. It will oxidize anything it touches. You don't want to live around the stuff.

Just passing on what The Connecticut Department of Public Health has to say. I looked into Ozone Generators back in 1990 to use on my boats and the conclusion was the same but not stated as forceful. Seems the years have brought in even sterner warnings. It has been known for many years the damaging effects that Ozone has on rubber and plastics which could cause expensive damaged to boats and trailers. One can choose to heed the warning or not makes no diffrence to me.

I'd sell the farm or drive your trailer around with the top down. Just kidding of course but, I would think that if everything that can absorb smell were cleaned thouroghly and you used dryer sheets followed by a good airing out you should be good to go very soon.... What's wrong with farm smell anyway? Good luck!
