I am having the same issue with condensation forming under my mattress on a 2015 J-Feather UL X23F. It is so much that it is staining the mattress, has anyone contacted Jayco to see if this is a design issue. I'm gong to Lowes and get some Reflectix insulation and see if it helps. I know if you can get the dew point to be in the insulation and keep the warm air form hitting the cold surface condensation cant form. I will let you know how it works

Sklingsick, have you tried opening a few windows and vents for the moisture to escape? As mentioned above. Once we learned to do such, we do not get moisture build up under the mattresses.

Installed the foam pads last weekend and that seems to have done the trick. The temps outside were around 25 degrees C at night so there was not a lot of change in outside temperature overnight. Big test will be the October trip to Awenda Proincial park for a week! Will let you know.

Just curious.. Are you leaving these foam pads in all the time, or do you put them in, only while setting up camp?

Thanks for sharing Hrhsharonnick. Can you send a link to the foam pad you are using?
I also had the same question as Raven.

Condensation

We have had condensation problems in the sleeping areas of our Jayco X20E...so bad at one point that I woke up with water drops falling on me! We have been putting plastic shower curtains under the mattresses which has helped a lot....it seems to act as a moisture barrier to the temperature differential mentioned in another post.
