New Rockwood Mini 2306

Hello,

We just took our new 2306 out for our first night this Easter Weekend. 60 degrees in Michigan during the day but 30 degrees at night. It was so much nicer than our Popup we had for 11 years. Wish we had made the jump to TT sooner.

I have one question regarding the windows on cold nights. We had the furance running during the night and we woke up to Condensation on all the windows and the two roof vents. I had a window open about an inch for fresh air. Was that the reason for the condensation? Should I just expect water on my single pane glass every time we have the furnace running?

thanks,

RKE

Welcome to the forum rke and congrats on your new Rockwood 2306! Condensation is obviously caused by excess water vapor in the air. It forms on the windows and roof vents because they are warm on the inside and cold on the outside. Seeing as leaving the window open didn't help you could try running a small dehumidifier.

Welcome, condensation is just a part of RV camping. You can use a product like Dri-z-air or a small dehumidifier to control interior moisture, as well as opening windows for airflow when weather permits. Just rember that some form of moisture control is absolutely necessary to prevent mold on or even inside the walls.
