Wet mattress bottom?

We were making ready to do our first laundry run and noticed while changing the sheets that the bottom of the mattress, and only the bottom, was noticeably wet. The wooden frame supporting the mattress was slightly damp. Our fresh water tank resides under the bed, but all appears fine with it.

Does anyone have any experience with this and what the cause might be?

Thanks.

My initial thought is condensation due to temp change (warm bodies over cool tank)? But if it is noticeably wet I am not sure.

x2 on condensation. Is the storage under the mattress accessible from outside? It appears to be from pics. Were you camping in colder weather? Did you notice any condensation build on your windows? I just bought a dehumidifier for my tt. Will be trying it out next week for our icebreaker trip. If your roof a/c is not on the same controls as your furnace, you can run your a/c with your heat (like your car/cabs defroster setting) and that will help dry it out.

Thanks guys. My wife thought it might be that also, but I kind of scoffed that idea since I didn't see how. We are currently at Pacific City, Oregon. Nighttime temperature has been in the upper 30s, lots of rain some days, and we rarely use the furnace while sleeping. At least now we know what it is and can work around it.


And thanks for no snarky comments. :P

No problem, just trying to help. We all have been baffled a time or two.
