Have to have a window or two cracked even if it is cold.

You still might need the dry mesh . We found the most important is air circulation. I believe the max fan on low doesn't use a lot of power . Maybe someone else can chime in here . We also have kitchen window opened a little too with Max fan running on low and our Eva- Dry's . We do have the extra insulation and dual pane windows too. Your last step would be the dry mesh if you still are having a problem . Pat

Air movement is what you need to eliminate wetness, get the mattress away from the exterior wall and allow air to circulate, perhaps foam pool bumpers would help until you can get the marine netting.

Come on down and camp in the gorgeous SW. If for any reason you would have condensation it's dry before you notice it.

Thanks---Eva-Dry on the Amazon wish list. As we fine-tune our trailer experience, we tackled the condensation and we are on the right track.

Bob K and Dona D: Yep! Love the insulation! At home I wake up at 2 or 3 and have difficulty going back to sleep. In the 19 I slept until 7:30 on more than one occasion! This is a huge deal! WhooHoo!

I found these not to be effective inside while the camper is in use. They are effective while in storage, but otherwise there are other ways to handling moisture.

Jim been using these for years . Previous in our camper . I think a lot has to do with your square footage and how extreme the weather is . Being in California not so extreme . We only need the smaller Eva Dry's and 2 of them . It all depends on your situation . They also can be used inside cabinets which is useful too. Pat
