Condensation on underbelly

While crawling under trailer to check for how to mount a Stabilizer system, I see a TON of condensation on one of the tanks in the underbelly.

Which led me to realize I don't know the relative placement of the four tanks (Black, Fresh, 2 Gray). This is the tank closest to the black dump tube.

Nowhere else.

It's hotter than the Devil's Underpants, and I have over half a tank of Fresh Water..........but I don't think the Fresh Water is close to this area.

Parked in driveway, hooked up to 50 amp shore power (house a/c is out, so we're living in it for a while), and both a/c running.

What is making this?

Are you saying the tank area is HOT? Maybe you have a tank heater switched on somehow. On my 2016 33IK ... the black and grey tanks are ahead of the axles, the galley tank about over the axles and the fresh water tank just to the rear of the axles.

What I think is possibly happening is the same as a non-insulated toilet tank.
When it's hotter than the hubs of hell, water entering from the outside(underground) is cold thus your condensation.
Had you just recently filled your holding tank before crawling underneath?

No, tank area is not hot. Not familiar with holding tanks enough to know which one this is. I'd think it's the black tank, and if so, it is 100% empty now.

Rupkin might have it. (P.S. I've been to Stony Plain!!! Old friend now gone lived there).
