Question Wood sealant for new White Hawk 23MBH

Hello, we are picking up a new 2014 White Hawk 23 MBH on Friday. We live in central Florida which is of course the center of the water/rain and moisture universe.
This is the 1st RV we have owned and everything I have read says that water/moisture is the natural enemy of all RV's.

I noticed in the unit a lot of unfinished wood as part of the structure/framing/etc.

Does it makes sense to cover all of the unfinished wood in some sort of marine sealant to protect it from all the rain and humidity that we have here in central Florida?

thanks!!

There would be no way to get to that wood. That wood is deep inside the walls, floors and roof. You would need to disassemble the camper to complete that task.

Your theory is good, but I agree with Ace. There's just no way to get to all of it. It's sort of like the wood structure in your house. If it's not exposed directly to water, there's no real need to worry about it.
