Make coffee ready for start-up before you go to bed. If you have timer for it, even better since it will provide assistance when assessing the morning's challenges.

Get some vent pillows. All your ceiling vents are quick heat losses. Square vent pillows ( plugs) push up into the square recessed area and act to insulate the cold/ and the heat loss

$10 each at Camping World

Propane, body heat, vapor, cooking all end up in the air as moisture.
Get a few of the new damp rid hanging bags. We put one in the kitchen, one in the bathroom, and one in the bedroom. In less than a day they all had 1" of water collected.

If you shower, get a damp rid tub and leave it in the shower stall when yor're finished. Wipe down the shower after each use with a towel. Also wipe the inside of the windows of moisture with a towel each morning, then hang all wet rags, towels, etc outside during the day to dry.

I have an electric blanket/throw that plugs into the 12v at the foot of my bed. I happened to find it at a truck stop. Very handy.
