Weird moisture on floor of Salem 241QBXL

Just wanted to see if any of you have any input on this. Over the last week we have noticed moisture on the floor of the trailer in various locations. It seems like it is seeping up through the floor. I know this sounds strange and it is strange. There hasn't been moisture in the same spot twice. We had rain today so I had the wife check around all the windows and no walls were damp. None is around the ac so I know it's not leaking there. We haven't towed in rain so the bottom of the trailer isn't saturated. It is parked on grass/ straw. Any ideas? Does it sound like a trip to the dealer?

We do use the disposable dehumidifier bags in the plastic holder, but keep them in the sink incase someone forgets to check them

It's not pools or puddles of water. It just looks like it's seeping up from the floor.

Has your AC been working correctly? It could be freezing up and then thawing. Thawing ice could be spewing randomly from the vents? Just a WAG, but this happened to me when my AC unit went bad.

No it's been parked since June 23rd when got back from our beach trip to Lakewood Campground in Myrtle Beach. Nothing is hooked up so no water pressure or anything running. Thanks for the info! I'll keep a look out for that problem!

Is this the same parking spot you've always parked it? Could the floor be getting cooled some how and the moisture is just condensing out of the air, or is it more substantial looking than condensation?

It is the same spot we always park it in. I was wondering like you said about the condensation. It doesn't feel excessively humid. We are pulling some out with the disposable dehumidifier. Wifey is replacing the bags as I type. She a good woman you know!

It could be from condensation I guess. It's not puddles or pools. I'll try and snap a pic or two tomorrow when I get home. You can easily wipe it with 2 papertowels and there hardly damp.

I bet it's dewpoint condensation. It'll do funny things. The floor probably isn't cooling at the same rate all over and it causes condensation in places. Those places will change depending on wind, etc..

Well no water today. Walked it barefoot again with a flashlight and didn't see or feel anything. Seems most likely to have been condensation. Guess I got caught up in the wife's paranoia. But wanted some second opinions. Thanks again for the help and suggestions.

Get a dehumidifier from Wally world. 30 at should do it.
