So if you haven't seen my thread we headed out for some wild camping Friday night the thing is we left the MH parked for two weeks Blinds Down.

Pre-set of on Friday I fired up the fire before we set off & used the cab heater to heat the van for 3-4hrs, when we parked we set the bed up & closed the blinds & noticed one Blind was rather wet inside, this resulted in us checking the walls having had a leak early on in march to find some wall mashaping we could NOT find none.

It has proven to be dry so Hopefully its just some condensation forming on the blind surface & im just wondering if this is normal.

Yes yes yes we don't own a Damp Meter & im fully aware of the precautions of not owniing such a device & our warranty has not yet run out either.

I just want to know if anybody else has experienced this as it was only on one blind.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi,Am i right in thinking that you have no external screen cover,if not you will get inside damp on the windscreen,and you should have no damp at all,otherwise all inside the dashboard as the water drips down will cause you lots of problems,regards H.:(

Was a newbie, now a Middie.
We get that problem on the blind over the bed, but it does have to be very cold outside.

I cant really see how the blinds or a blind would get damp, do you have a skylight open a crack and a couple of windows open a crack when you are using it overnight as well. We create a lot of moisture living in a tin box and it has to go somewhere.

We had moisture found on one blind during the last hab service. It turned out that there was a crack in the sealant round the window which was enough to let a little rain in. Not a difficult or costly repair but could have been worse if it hadn't been caught so worth checking if it is that.

That`s why I asked if it was just one window...

That would have been my next suggestion. (Serious head on. :))
