Solaire 163x.

I have a 2016 Solaire 163x hybrid, and have problems with the mattress on the rear bunk collecting condensation on the bottom side.
There are no water outlets near it, and it is not this way when we set up.
We don't have a bed wetter, and have also had this issue while there has been no rain. Has anyone else had this issue, or have any kind of solution?

This often happens with mattresses with fabric bottoms.
It's from warm bodies and colder bunk doors, which cause condensation under the mattress.
Some have cured it with solar blankets.
Some with sheets of foam insulation.
I use a wool blanket that allows air to pass through.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up.
When I fold up, I place the mattress in the middle of the floor to let it dry.

However, it's only happening on the one bunk, that was my biggest concern.
My camper is going in to get the hing fixed on Monday, maybe I will see a difference then as well?
