Condensation

I live in the southeast and it has been very hot and humid. I run the both air conditioners to keep the humidity and temperature down. The ac vent in the bathroon has developed condensation on the vent. That is the only one where this happens. I dry it and overnight it is back. Ideas? I have a couple but want to hear everyone's thougnts. Thanks.

Not sure there's much you can do about it really. Mine does it too.

Could it be something as the vent cover is so much cooler than the outside air. Water condenses on it, not sure that was your issue!We live in Phoenix very dry here. Thanks

Condensation collects on the warm side not the cool side. Make sure condensation is not leaking in from the exterior of the A/C unit. It should be dripping off the roof and not getting inside. Could also be condensation on the outside of the A/C duct running in the roof area.

Same thing happens to ours, but only at night. But we also turn it down to around 68 at night, while the outside temps are high 70's or low 80's.

A dehumidifier will rid of the issue. Used one while full timing and still use same unit now. World of difference. Wake up with camper feeling dry, towels dry etc. Worth every penny.

We had that issue in the bathroom on the ceiling where the AC duct runs and on the vent in the bathroom. I discovered it was caused by leaving the fan vent open. I now close it when it’s hot/humid and no longer have condensation issues until someone takes a shower, helps with the cooling too.

We had virtually the exact same experience.

The amount of condensation was never enough for me to be concerned about it, and mostly it just happened after someone took a shower.
