Moisture

We discovered the band of wall touching the edge of the fixed bed mattress was condensing moisture in our 17 A. We first noticed this when winter camping at aprox.-10. Fans, windows, nothing made a difference to this band of moisture.
I realized the space under the bed was enclosed and colder than inside the trailer. We opened the access doors to help it ventilate and voila, no more condensation! I am considering a small computer fan and vents to help keep the temp constant inside.

Good idea. In cold weather camping we notice the same plus moisture where the front dinette cushions meet the wall up front. We try to prop up the cushions at night when we go to sleep so they aren't tight against the wall. It seems to help.
