We soon discovered being in our Rv for an extended amount of time, the one thing we needed to carefully watch for was condensation. It will cause havoc in a camper.
Our friends Tom and Lori had an issue with condensation, and they strongly recommend we invest in a dehumidifier.
Pro breeze dehumidifier
These things are amazing. We purchased a large unit for our main living and kitchen area that holds 1500 Ml of liquid and then later purchased 2 small ones ( one for our bedroom and one for the basement solar compartment that hold 500ml each.
This past summer the humidity has been 85-99% so these units have done amazing collecting the liquid.
So we did our research, and discovered there are a few other things we could do daily that will help prevent condensation, so we thought we would share them with you.
Eliminate the source of the condensation as fast as possible!
Since we do most of our cook in our Rv, we alway use lids on our pots and have our stove exhaust fan running. This helps reduce the moisture in the air. (Remember to open your flap on the outside of your trailer or your stove exhaust will not work properly, ask me how I know, lol)
Showering is another contributor to condensation. We always have our bathroom fan running as this pulls the moisture out of the air. Immediately after our showers we use a shammy cloth to wipe down all our shower walls and use a squeegee to remove any left over water on our shower floor.
Roof vent covers
These install directly over your roof lids and allow you to leave your lid open in various weather conditions. Unless the wind is coming directly into our vents they always stay open, even and inch or so.
Dollar tree disposable moisturizer eliminators.
We place these in our closets, and in our cupboards. They are cheap and work great!
Indoor thermometer with wireless humidity level indicator.
We placed the 3 wireless units strategically in our rig, one in the basement garage near our water pump, one in the solar compartment, and our bedroom. Now we can monitor multiple areas at once.
If you are able, run your AC as this will also help to reduce the humidity level inside.
