Background as to how I noticed the condensation in the shower dome -
Yesterday, when I was on the roof of my Tracer 3150 and installing the 3 MaxxAir II vent covers, I noticed something had moved inside the dome like a fly. So I schooched over to see what it was, but could not see anything, but then realized the condensation between the two panes of plastic. I quickly thought that movement could have just been a drop of condensation falling.
Fast forward to this morning and following the advice of removing the internal panel to let the condensation air out, I left it off to air the area out. Well, I just poped in to wipe down the dome when I noticed that what I saw yesterday was in fact a fly! It was sitting on the inside of the wood frame, moving slow, but moving. It looked like a common house fly, so I waited a second and then smashed it and it fell to the ground.
Then I googled life span of a household fly. 15 to 45 days is what I got back! UGH! So its winter and I live in Northern IL, although there is no snow on the ground, its still in the 30's at night and 45 maybe in the day.
How would a fly get in there in the first place?
Is this a sign of something worse?
Since the black tank is presumably empty, and I do not smell anything odor wise, it could be a fluke.
The born on date of the Trace is 9/17/11 and the dealer winterized it prior to us purchasing it, which was 1/16/12. When I did the walk through then I did see the pink stuff in the sinks and such. The trailer had been sitting in the dealers lot, which is a blacktop lot and very clean.
So I will keep a close eye on anything else that might crawl or fly out but talk about a weird moment!
