Looking for some extra tips for the condensation problem, windows especially. We are full timing in our 28BH in Cincinnati. We're into the colder nights now and the windows are getting a little condensation on them. Not much but enough that I would like to take some extra action to prevent this as much as possible. I already use a Danby 30 pint 110v dehumidifier 24/7 which keeps it below 40% humidity and we always use the vent when showering, etc. The TT doesn't have the double pane windows and there's no way I can afford that right now. I do have Damp Rid in a couple strategic places (under the kitchen sink, under the shower tub) and today I turned on my less than impressive eva dry mini dehumidifier for a boost. During the day I turn the ac fan on to circulate air and that seems to do a good job of getting rid of the condensation while we're up but when we close the blinds and go to bed it starts all over again. At night we have a forced air electric heater to keep the temps above 70 which circulates the air a little but not enough to prevent condensation.

I've heard of other people putting things like bubble wrap or reflectex on the windows and keeping a window cracked with the vent on but I'm trying to avoid obscuring the view and don't like the idea of leaving a window cracked much less the fan noise would drive us nuts. Any pointers would be much appreciated.

I crack my bathroom vent and leave it running at night. This has helped me tremendously with the condensation while the heat is running. I had small pools of water on the sill before and now very minor light condensation here and there. We had been camping up till last weekend in northern ohio and temps were in the 20's at night.
