I don't think there is anyway to get away from it but what I do when it gets like that is leave the windows or roof vents open a crack. I know it will get a little colder inside but it helps get rid of some of the moisture.

Use a dehumidifier. We camp all winter on the west coast of Canada. There is a lot of rain and the only way to keep the windows clear is using a dehumidifier.

We use damprid to help control the moisture. We get it at Lowes. Later RJD

Crack a window at each end of the RV and open a roof vent. Limit indoor cooking and if showering, run bathroom vent. If you got a lot of condensation on the windows, you also had some under the mattress. The moisture from your body penetrates the mattress and will condense on the cooler (over the pass thru) bed platform. When you get home, prop the mattress up and allow it to air out underneath.

We just bought a dehumidifier to leave in our RV full time. If you decide to go that route, get a unit with a humidistat, so you can set the humidity you want it to maintain.

We bought this great little dehumidifier from Amazon.
Works like a champ!

Also at night we put those silver bubble window covers in the windows. Really helps keep the warm air off the cold window glass.

I think, if you run the AC not at full blast will work like a dehumidifier. I know it works on cars along with the heater for that purpose, to dry the air and prevent the windows from fogging.
