We use electric heaters, but keep the a/c fan on all the time and the bathroom vent cracked. The circulation has kept us dry so far.

We haven't tried keeping the fan going and was using the gas heater (forgot to bring the electric one on that trip). We'll try keeping the a/c fan on with the heat next time it gets that low again; doesn't hurt to try once before springing for a dehumidifier. Thanks for the suggestiion Hutashe!

David 472 has a good point...it sounds counter-intuitive, but correct. The a/c will dry the air. It will all work overtime a bit, but...This is why if you turn on the defrosters in your car on a cold wet day, the a/c compressor runs automatically.

One trick I learned from tent camping was to keep a candle burning all night. In a tent I would hang a safety candle and it would prevent any condensation from the level of the candle and up. I don't know if it would work as well in a TT, but it might be worth a shot. Certainly much cheaper than running the A/C and heat, or a de-humidifier, and you wouldn't need a safety candle, a decorative one would work.

We had that same thing happen when we owned the 256RKS, just got used to waking up wiping the windows. Since we ordered the 320RLDS with the double pane window we have not had any condensation at all.
