A/C Condensation

Had a great time two weekends ago & a RV park in Galveston Texas. The third day of or stay I noticed the inside part of the unit in the ceiling had a lot of condensation. So much it was dripping on the floor. I also noticed the ceiling ducts right off the unit were frosting over. Earlier that morning we had the windows open to enjoy the breeze & hear the ocean. Did I just let to much humidity in? We did not open the windows any more & did have it as bad but it still did it a little.

Your problem has three sources. 1) Humidity too high in camper. This can result from introducing humid air from outside, cooking, breathing, showering. 2) Insufficient air movement through the A/C and, (3) Too low a temperature setting. Think of the sweating glass model. The more humid it is - the more it sweats, the colder the glass - the more it sweats, put the glass in front of a fan -the less it sweats.

So, to reduce, but probably not completely eliminate the problem, do the following:
Keep the doors, windows and vents shut. Reduce the introduction of humidity from cooking, showering, etc. Raise the temp setting a bit and keep the fan on high and on continuous run. Look to achieve a balance between the above.
