Giving thought to removing that cabinet door and taking out the center panel and replacing it with some stamped out metal pattern so air will freely circulate.
Myron,
Is it possible you put the dishes away while still wet? That happened once with me, washed and put away while packing up to leave, mold 2 weeks later. However never once has it happened with dry dishes left in o/h while camping over the winter.

Not possible, Cp. First thing I noticed when pulling a box of Triscuit out was its box was very soft. That was odd, but then the dishes really set off alarms. Picture here is what I cleaned out of the cabinet floor.

Home Depot here doesn't carry them stamped sheet metal sheets we used to use when framing out radiators in the house. So at the shade department I found nice thin bamboo strip shades I am considering as a better looking insert.

I remember a fella lived in OR that did exactly what you are talking about Myron to his Scamp 19. He used the decorative mesh screen and replaced the center section of the cabinet doors on the uppers with the screen. Came out really nice. Our home depot carries the decorative metal screen he used in brass or satin. It's usually at the end of the hardware aisle with the aluminum sheets and metal dowels and tubes.

Actually PeterH lives in Washington, but close enough!

A lot of boats use a plastic rattan insert to do the same thing. Looks nice and ventilates the cabinet/locker.
