Why all this condensation .....

Noticed while in the bathroom that the exhaust fan is dripping quite a bit of water....haven't had any rain for a few days but temp has gone up & down quite a bit (upper 30's - mid 70's)....haven't ran the fan at all except right after this normal? thanks

Have you noticed any condensation around your windows also? Warm moist air is condensating on the cool surfaces. Crack the bathroom vent a bit to help dry up the air.

Assuming you're not sitting in Florida ... about any winter closed up RV use creates moisture whether by showering, cooking, or just breathing. You'll have to get used to using the vent fan or buy a small dehumidifier

Those temp. swings could be causing the condensate. Is it raining (leak)? Run the fan during showers, that will ecspell the excess "steam" also.

Very common under your situation. So on the 70 degree days in FLA you get warm moist air entering camper. At night that warm moist air is hitting the cold air around the exhaust fan ( no insulation in exhaust fan) and condensing and dripping in. As this is normal weather conditions for your area, if you have shore power, buy a small dehumidifier and run it when temps are above 40. If you get one with the remote drain option, you can run condensate down drain and not have to empty every few days.
