Forest River Surveyor 2012 Condensation

(SW Florida)

We have a new Forest River Surveyor 2012. We were camping this weekend in southern Florida. The temperature got to 34 degrees on Saturday AM and down to 32 degrees on Sunday AM. We did have our heat set on 66 degrees. On Sunday AM I happened to reach into and overhead storage cabinet and noticed significant moisture on the walls. I checked all the other overhead cabinets and they also had moisture on the walls. Also there were 2 overhead light globes that had droplets of water in them. It had not rained. I am fairly certain that this is a condensation event. Is this something that is able to be corrected in the shop or by making some sort of temperature adjustment, or anything else??? I am concerned that over time it will cause mold and mildew, besides causing possible deterioration of the RV.

Moisture
by: Richard

I have also had a couple times where moisture was present after a cold night. A few walls were moist, but not to degree of which you mention. I don't have a rig that, although it's brand spanking new, has the all seasons insulation package. It sounds like you don't either.

The way I get around it, other staying away from colder areas, is to leave the heat way down at night. Then in the morning turn the heat up and get toasty warm.

One thing I do as well is open the doors of the cabinets attached to the exterior walls. This helps a lot.
