Baton Rouge to Key West and Back, Condensate Issue

Just hauled the Flagstaff from Baton Rouge to Key West and back. Spent 2.5 weeks at Bluewater Key RV. It was great, back to reality now. We put 3000 miles on the TV and had no issues. Only thing I noticed during our stay was condensate on the bathroom vent fan was bad, also on the light fixture just outside of the bathroom door. Then I noticed some water on the floor coming from under the wall at the front of the shower. I took off the inspection plate and there was condensate building up in the underside f the front of the tub. Sure it was hot outside and we ran the ac 24-7 on about 65 or so to keep the camper cool. I keep a dehumidifier running while its hooked up at home but I have never brought it with us and never noticed these issues before. I know we go in and out and open bathroom vent from time to time and this lets in humid air. Outside hot inside cool condensate happens. How is the best way to controll it. Thanks in advance, Travis.

You probably do this already but make sure you have a vent open and a fan running when cooking on the stove or showering. That will help. I too use a dehumidifier at home and am amazed at the gallons of water it collects. You would think the a/c would take care of most of it. That is what we get for living in the swamp states!!
