condensation buildup in shower skylight above shower

Does anyone have this issue? We recently purchased a FS 829rkss and noticed this starting to build up. Any suggestions would be appreciated! We are camping currently and was curious if anyone else has experienced this.

Thanks
-Joe

Do you open the vent afterwards and run the fan? Do you have a Fantastic fan?

We do have that fan and have run it with every shower. The condensation is in between the surfaces in the sky window...does that make sense?

We had that on our Rockwood when it was a few years old and had to remove the top section of the skylight, dry it out and reinstall and reseal it. That stopped our issue as it looked like there were spots on the roof that weren't sealed real well or were the lap sealant had shrunk.

i had that issue on my 8315SS. i simply took the inside cover off to dry it out. when i removed the inside cover i noticed black "mold"? on the foam inside the ceiling. upon closer inspection on the roof,i found a spot on the dicor caulk that had split and was allowing water to seep into the ceiling. i repaired the caulk and ultimately resealed all the seams on the roof with eternabond. had it not been for the condensation i probably would not have known that i had a leak problem !
