Condensation

Due to the hot day temps and cool night temps in Michigan upper peninsula we experienced condensation on the inside of both bunk ends we had the screens open on each end with the fan on any other ideas to prevent this again or is it just the nature of the beast with weather like that

Be sure to check under the mattress. If you get condensation, just add a sheet of foam home insulation board between mattress and bed base.

PUGs offer so many benefits, including reducing condensation, it's a no-brainer.
#1 mod for popups and hybrids.

I have the Gizmos and they due reduce the heat inside the pup significantly, while blocking out the light in the early morning. Iíve not had any condensation on the inside of the pup but did have it directly under the Gizmo.

Get a vent fan cover and that way you can open the vent even during rain. We open the screen door panel at the top too.
