Dehumidifier enough?

So we have one dehumidifier in our fifth wheel that we are living in full time this winter. My husband thinks its 60 pints. Are windows are frosting and were not sure if we should worry? I know these are not meant to live in.. But you gotta do what ya gotta do. We have put the plastic that you blow dry on windows in your house on one large window in our living room our window on our door in the kitchen and a couple on the windows in our bedroom. If anyone has ideas that could help we would so greatly appreciate this. This is so new to us an any help is greatly appreciated. We dont wanna ruin our camper any more then we need to! (Btw) we have a 2007 cedar creek if this helps in any way!!

You'll need to be conscious of all humidity producing behaviors. Boiling water, taking showers or baths, all need to have a vent fan running. Since you tightened up the windows, keep a roof vent just barely cracked open to allow warm, humid air escape. Wet clothing and towels also need to be allowed to dry in vented bathroom if possible. The cubic footage available is just too small to handle all the moisture.

Like said above....control moisture in the small space. Also, when you shower, use a squeegee to wipe down the shower walls. Push the water to the drain.

Learn to cook pasta in the microwave rather than boiling it.
