Mitch you need to carry a small dehumidifier.We have used one in our rv for 4 years. You can buy a small 12v/240 v one which if left on overnight will keep on top of the condensation when it has been reduced to a low level.:thumb:
Welcome to the forum matey :thumb:
The reason that you get the condensation on the windows is because they are single glazed and the temperature differential across the glass causes the moisture entrained in the air to condense onto the cold glass. Cooking and breathing are the worst culprits..... You cannot change the laws of physics so no, there is no real solution to it I am afraid. You might try just cracking open one of the skylights or a window to allow a wee bit of air circulation, I have found that this does help a bit.
Good luck with it, and get a good quality chamois :thumb:
i first bough a couple of small dehumidifiers from argos (about 10 inches high) to help with this. turned out to be totally useless. then i bought a big (£140 ish) dehumidifier from b & q. problem solved. no noise problems, and also has a usueful heater built in. however, have since discovered that since swmbo has stopped showering with the door open, humidity is MUCH reduced. no surprise there.
I get it too in my C Class ( coachmen santara ) only on the side windows. Front does not get it due to the outside cover. When I get back home and park it up I put an electric de- humidifier in it to get any moisture out.
Some of the stand alone units you can get are quite good in small areas such as cuboards etc. I have one in my aircraft and it has been great keeping the avionics dry. When it's full you plug it in the mains it dries out ready to be used again. In the aircraft it lasts about three weeks. You would need a few in a RV, the one I have was about fifteen quid. Might be worth a try and they are silent.
We find that we get condensation in the cupboards in winter and on the front screen when cooking. We always leave the roof vents slightly open and try not to use LPG for anything unless we really have to. A low powered oil filled electric radiator left on 24/7 also seems to help dry out and we leave cupboards and wardrobes open when we go out, this really helps.
Just my couple of Penneth, I recently bought a 28ft A class Motorhome and the previous owners said that they suffered terribly from condensation and used a dehumidifier to keep on top of the problem. I know from conversations with them that they exclusively used the onboard blown air heating which is powered by gas to heat the vehicle and used the gas cooker alot. Since I've had the vehicle I have not used the blown air heating and and kept gas cooking down to a minimum and when I do ensure R.V is well ventilated. I can honestly say that I have had NO issues with condensation what so ever and have substiuted the gas blown air heating with a small Oil filled Radiator (15 quid from Halfords) and a small convector heater which keeps the R.V toastie even when temperatures have been down as low as -5. I'm convinced the gas heating has been the culprit. Oh and I have no need for a Dehumidifier since ditching the gas heating.
i use dry bags which i got from fm our local caravan shop, they are completely natural no chemicals, plus you can use them over and over just bring them home when necessary and pop them in the oven to dry out, works for me, especially in winter, i buy samll ones for the wardrobes and everything stays dry. just buy a couple and see how you feel about them
