I have read that condensation can cause a lot of damage over time and I am wondering if this is something I need to worry about and correct. Thanks for any words of wisdom!!
You really need to get it stopped. Condensation is water, it will get inside the walls via the window frames and just leaching through seams etc. It will cause Mildew, insects and worst of all wood damage with delamination inside and outside sheating. DH is probably your best bet with better ventilation. Don't let it continue all season.

Doubt all your windows except 1 leak.
That's not the window the fan is blowing on. The ones most likely for it to be blowing on are the ones around the dinette because that is the direction the fan is pointed in. You'd be surprised. The only thing different about that window is that it's an exit window. My guess is it's made on a different line or differently. Possibly even a different mfg. The reason I think they leak is that water came in mainly when it was raining. Some condensation when it was cold and dry out. But, also, my indoor humidity was quite low, even when it was cold out.

Agreed. Evadry makes a good, small one that we use. Very quite, too. At night we move it near the head of the bed and it eliminates the moisture from our breath.

Thanks to All

Here I am in Arizona with my BW and our little Yorkie and they are having lows in the 20's, coldest in 20 some years. Thank you for all the responses concerning our condensation on our windows. We BARELY cracked open the roof vent in our bathromm and it has completely taken care of the problem. Now all we need is WARMER weather!
