I had the same problem with the heat pump running at the same time as the furnace. I opened the breaker panel
under the table and turned off the a/c breaker. Worked for me.

There were responses above about how to correct this without having to go through the breaker box.

Ya I saw those.
I’m just saying what I did to stop the problem not saying it’s the correct way to do it.

My camper is away from the home on our land in NM for the next while until I can get a house built.
Where we are there is no cell service and I have no idea where I put the owners manual so I just used the most logical method of shutting off the cool cat.

We had temps down to 9°f and stayed plenty warm which is an indication of how well the roof panels are insulated. The snow wasn’t even melting which surprised me.

I kept the battery charged with a Renogy 100watt solar panel during the day and ran my little Honda generator at night to keep the block heater on my diesel going.

The heated mattress is wonderful and since we had the generator running anyway it was a treat. The floor never gets very warm and the door and window frames had frost on them at night.

My only beef is the skylight over the bed gets a LOT of condensation which will sometimes run down and collect enough to drip but a wipe with a towel cures that small problem. That is however with two people and two dogs breathing.

We used 3 20lb propane and 15 galllons of gas for a week keeping the camper at about 65° day and night.

As counter-intuitive as it seems, you need to crack open the Fantastic Fan vent and the window next to the bed. You need just a little airflow to prevent the condensation from forming on the window. You need both cracked to allow the excess humidity to be vented outside. It won't affect your inside temperature all that much.

The other solution is to keep the thermostat lower - in the 50s instead of 60s and use warmer bedding.

Ask any cold weather tent camper - just a very small amount of ventilation prevents condensation.

just our experiences

Thanks. I’ve tried that and while the condensation is less it doesn’t go away completely. It was very cold (9°) and there was my wife and I and two big dogs huffing and puffing all night. The heated mattress is a treat and gets used when it’s that cold. Two dogs are pretty nice too unless they are gassy.
