Condensation

We experience the same condensation issues in the cool weather. I try to run the ceramic heaters as much as possible.

I do believe that propoane gives off more moisture than electric heaters.

I wonder about using a small dehumidifier?

many do, that have electric hookups.
since we dry camp, almost all the time, we couldn't use one.

We use an Eva dry dehumidifier summer and fall. It's amazing how much water it pulls out of the air. In the summer it really lowers the humidity and makes it very comfortable.

Able to sneak in a one night camp on 11/23/12 and try out new PUG solar tent covers. WOW...impressive! Left tent windows cracked 3-4 inches, opened roof vent couple of inches, and cracked front side window. No condensation at bottom of tent ends. Also, camper retained heat better as furnace did not run as much. Temps were in low 30s.
Heading back 11/28/12 for 4 night camp with predicted temps of low 20s.

It's been 10+ winter camp nights since last post with temps as low 14 but norm usually mid 20's. Having real difficult time with condensation around the heated beds, 3-4 inches up vinyl. Freezing to ice. Often I have to break down early morning and I'm closing camper ends with the ice. Know that's bad and will catch up with me but not sure of options. Have windows/vents open with fans running. RH meter inside reads, on average, 25-30 which I believe is "dry". Went to local RV expo this evening and one suggestion was stuffing old wool rags in gap between mattress and vinyl. I'll try anything at this point.
