Mold Problems

I bought my Taco used and have been trying to get mold off of the rubber molding surrounding my back glass. No, I have no trees I park it under.

Are you asking for help on remocing mold? Use a disinfectant to clean it. If it is really bad it may be worth replacing the rubber.

Bleach kills mold better than anything I know of.

Mix half water, half bleach in a spray bottle. While you're at it, spray your vents.

I have used disinfectant and very strong bleach. I guess I will have to replace the molding. Thanks, I will spray the vents. Haven't thought about doing that. Thanks to all that responded.

are you sure its mold and not the adhesive melting and oozing. bleach should take care of the mold.

If bleach didn't get it, it has to be something else. Can you post a pic?

Napalm worked on mine. If you can't find napalm, a common household flame thrower will do the trick.
