I have had major lung issues lately along with mold growing inside my trailer. Is this bad for my pulmonary fibrosis?

In brief: Yes!!!
Indoor mold is a very common yet often hidden problem. It can cause a variety of serious health problems including cough, asthma, shortness of breath & chest pain, both through allergic reactions to mold and due to inflammation caused by exposure to mold toxins.
About 25% of the population has a genetic hypersensitivity to mold. See http://www.Survivingmold.Com/diagnosis for much more information.

In brief: Absolutely
There is significant harm to being exposed to mold with pulmonary fibrosis.
Some types of fibrosis are even caused by hypersensitivity to molds. Stay somewhere else and get the trailer cleaned and sterilized before you return.
