condensation between skylight panels

When putting my 26 foot Puma away for the winter this past Oct. I noticed a problem that is going to have to be addressed when I pull it back out this spring. It seems that condensation has been forming at some time between the outer and inner panels of the shower skylight. There was a little bit of dampness on the interior ceiling around the trim of the skylight, so I pull this piece off to let things dry out while in storage. I am not sure there is any remedy for this besides installing a better skylight, but if anyone has thoughts on fixing this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

Had this problem in my last 5th wheel. Found that it was NOT condensation but a had bad seal around the skylight up on the roof. Applied some sealant and removed the interior portion of the skylight, wiped it all out and reinstalled. Had no further problems with it....hope that helps
