I did camp with conditions as you described. I moved from class a class C to an A. I have always wondered why I saw fans sitting in the windshields of Class A campers. Is a fan a must have for a class A?? I will try this and also put a towel across the bottom to catch any additional moisture. I'm hoping that this is the reason and there are no leaks. I did not see any water marks or drips on the windshield. If this is the case then a front fan should be a standard part in a class A (for people like me). Thanks for the tip!

No condensation

You are right about there being water on the inside windshield during cold weather, but the first ones we had were during warm weather. There was no condensation. Actually, the second & this one (#3) was while the camper was being washed. We were washing the roof with Spic N Span and rinsing it with plenty of water. Our windshield does not have a gasket, but I wonder if it would be better if it did.

Once again I am amazed at the subtle differences in the same model years. My 2014 DS30 was apparently one of the first made.

I can't imagine what would hold such a large windshield in place without the gasket.

Difference Examples include. The pocket door latch, and the Lippert steps that coincidentally had the common bolt sheer off last night. Those steps are so old the marker on the bottom read "coach step model 164194 with a date of 2/26/12, apparently they Coach Step were purchased by Lippert.

Whenever we use the furnace we always leave either the front vent or window open just a little. No condensation.
