Question MicroLite 21FBRS bathroom fan question

Should the fan be running in the bathroom while showering? Why or why not?

Thanks again!

Different camper here- but I keep it on if I want to have any hope of seeing any reflections in the mirror when I'm done my HOT shower. I leave it on a while afterwards hoping that the moving air dries out the room quicker (not sure how much wishful thinking this is, though).

That said, there was a recent Sabre thread where one posted said his air conditioner units dripped condensation more when the vent was open and fan on. We left our fan on for the better part of last week and definitely did notice more and dripping condensation. I didn't put two and two together at the time. My next trip, I'm going to leave it off unless someone is actually showering.

I was told to turn off the fan when showering because it sucks the shower curtain over. Now that I have a weighted and over-sized curtain I will leave it on when showering.

Had always heard that trapped moisture was a big problem with RVs in general. We try to keep the moisture to a minimum - on when showering for sure. A squeegee to the shower and glass doors afterwards helps too.

We don't seem to get any of that when camping. We do run a portable dehumidifier 24/7 when the RV is parked in our driveway.
