Thumbs down Condensation On top of bed

Any ideas on how to avoid waking up with condensation dripping on your face?

I do not have a hybrid but it appears they are using the gizmopopup thingy's
or a 5x7 thermal emergency blanket to cover the top of the bunk ends which in turn keeps the condensation off of the top of the bunk material.

ditto on PUG's website and also do a search on condensation on any hybrid forum. air movement along with PUGs or solar blankets, is the key.

i have to ask, did you not get a good walk-thru or PDI when you bought your unit? i'm asking because you have posted a lot of questions regarding problems.

our dealer sells a lot of hybrids and told us about how to prevent condensation.

We keep the vent open, bathroom fan on low, or the bunk end "window" cracked open. I also have the bunk end covers from Popup Gizmos, but haven't used them yet.

If you are running the AC do not run Fantastic fan as it will drawn in more humid air than the Ac can handle. Did it once in humid weather and the ceiling was dripping wet.

I had a hybrid for years. You have to keep in mind that you are sleeping in a tent, so any moisture will condensate on the canvas and drip down on you in cool/ cold weather. What we did is we made sure that we vented excess moisture outside if we were cooking or showering, also we keep the zipper open about 6 to 12 inches at the top of the bunk end zipper panel at night to let out the excess moisture that we breathe out. keeping the heat down at night and using the heated mattress pad also helps a lot. We have gone camping in temperatures as low as 20 degrees F at night and we were able to keep the moisture from dripping on us. I have also heard that the pop up gizmos help. PopupGizmos

get the pop up gizmos. they work. we've just got back from camping this weekend and it was very cold out at night. The gizmos helped with the furnace not kicking on as much and there was zero condensation on the bunk ends!!!
