RV Condensation

We are currently camping for the first time in 80+ degree weather with our sunseeker class c. We are getting large amounts of condensation on the ceiling where the ac vents run. Itbi not dripping from vents or ac, just forming on ceiling. What do I need to do?

keep your doors and windows closed more... there is too much humidity in the camper and then the moisture condenses on the cold ducts rather than in the AC coils.

typically this means the door is open too much, letting in too much hot damp air.

Nailed it! More than likely you would have also noticed quite a bit of condensate water coming off your roof... The AC coils will be able to remove a considerable amount of humidity from the air, but in your situation, looks like you were in a very humid environment. One in which was too much for your AC to handle.
