The moisture is not comming from your furnace. It is vented outside the trailer.

If you use a catalytic heater they will make lots of moisture.

Crack the windows open a bit and keep the roof vents slightly open. Extra warm blankets and a cool interior will help.

Totally agree. I used a torpedo heater to warm a giant boat house made out of tarps one winter. We were refinishing a 27' sailboat so the homemade shelter was required. After running the heater for an hour or so, it would start raining inside. Kind of funny...until it was time to paint the deck.

Anyways, I'm having the same moisture problems in my X23b. Do any of you know if a small dehumidifer placed in the sink will work on a camper that large? They're normally used in boats. I'm wondering if there's just too much square footage and poor insulation at the bunk ends for a dehumidifer to be effective.

I am currently South and it is so dry that you have to prime yourself to spit.

I wonder if anyone has tried that heat shrink material? You'd loose the ability to open the windows, but in cooler weather it would create a pocket of dead air space.

Haven't tried it yet, just a thought.

I like the idea of driving south, just to many bills to pay at the moment!

We belong to the group of lucky people who live in the south (Charleston S.C.) and have a 12 month camping season. But sometimes the DW wants to go north to colder climates and we also have seen the moisture build up on the windows and metal window and door frames. I would not consider the moisture build up to be any more with this Jayco TT than that of any other TT that we have owned. Having said that I was thinking that I may purchase a small dehumidifier that we could run to see if that will help with the moisture issue. But that will have to wait, our next trip in Nov. will be to Disney World so no need for the dehumidifier.

Clutch, which part of AZ are you in for the winter, Florence area perhaps?
