At the moment we have a MH that doesn’t have cab blinds. We use outside silverscreens in cold weather which stops condensation on front screen and cab door windows.
The MH we are buying has internal cab blinds on the front screen and doors. I was wondering do the blinds get wet with condensation if you don’t use silver screens.

The windscreen will be covered in condensation in the morning so the blinds must I assume absorb some moisture.

We use a silver screen whilst on site but when we use aires we use the internal blinds.

We carry a Karcher window vac to clear the moisture in the morning. (y)

In a word no,but they don't do anything to prevent condensation!

Another vote for Karcher window vac. Never had a problem with damp or moisture on the blinds and if there is some condensation the window vac takes care of it very quickly. I have never liked silver screen covers, when I open the blinds I want to see out. This morning I have an uninterrupted view of the hills surrounding Moffat.

The blinds don't prevent condensation, but the moisture condenses on the windscreen, not the blinds. The blinds in our present A class are far enough away from the windscreen so that they do not get wet. same with the blinds in our previous C class

On ours the internal fixed screens are not touching the screen so avoid any contact with any moisture on the window. They sit about an inch or so proud of the screen it self. We do however use a silver screen, a Taylormade, winter and summer to prevent any condensation or moisture build up and keep cool in summer.

Agree with the above replies.

We carry a small microfibre towel to dry the windscreen on the mornings we get condensation, usually only a cold weather problem.

It has the added advantage of cleaning the inside of the screen.

"we", have a "squeegee", used to wipe down the shower after use. This and a large old towel, (normally used for Dog Drying) placed in the window space to catch drips, does as a "poor man`s Karcher". In an "A" class, the reach to the screen makes folding back and fastening the Blinds somewhat of a struggle, using a "helping hand" helps but they are still quite awkward to manage. In that respect, the curtains we had in the R-V`s are in my view far more "user friendly".

We have an insulated aluminium roller blind on the windscreen and it does stop a lot/most of the condensation on the screen the side windows are not a problem as they are double glazed(y)

Would a Karcher KV1 be man enough for use clearing condensation only from van windscreens.
Thanks
