Annoying Condensation & Vent Covers

While camping at Myrtle Beach during hot weather we like to crank up the A/C and sleep w/ a down comforter but when we did this (second time we used our 8285WS) we gathered a lot of condensation on the bathroom vent cover. So much condensation that the floor was wet! Is there a blockage somewhere or has anyone else encountered this?

Also the vent covers on the ceiling seem to flop shut after a while - like the default position is closed. How do you keep them open or do I just lave lazy/loose covers?

Trailer really tows great behind my 08 long bed xtended cab Allison/Duramax - computer shows 13.8 mpg travelling I 95 (pretty flat)

Are you talking about the AC vents closing? My camper was doing the same thing and its a manufactor defect. I had all mine replaced and if you have central air and your vents are closing call you dealer and have them replace the vents.

only way to stop condensation is to have a vent open somewhere for the hot humid air to get out. i have that happen in my trailer sometimes to.

Yup. If you're in the living area, open a vent there. At night open the bedroom vent. Your hot exhaled air needs to escape or it becomes condensation, along with other things.
