Mold and Mildew in Game Drawer Beneath Refrigerator
Newbie to the forum......
We bought a 2012 Chapparal Lite 280RLS 5th Wheel in February 2012 and enjoy it very much.
Used it frequently last Season with no issues.
This season after properly winterizing/de-winterizing (Eastern Shore of MD) we took it to Cape Hatteras in early April.
When the living room slide was out I felt dampness on the carpet in front of the reefer. A check in the game drawer just below revealed a slight dusting of mold and mildew.
We cleaned it up and began to search for the cause with no result. At first I thought of a leaky slide out or leaks through the vents behind the reefer, but subsequent rains and time have not revealed any other moisture issues. Since then, we've been opening it up every couple weeks when we're not using it and placed a cheap can of evap crystals in the drawer and after about 6 weeks it produces about a cup of water.
My question is: Has any other 280RLS owners observed the same and what did/are they doing to prevent it?
