Hello again
Sorry to keep buggin' you guys but ...another question.
As I mentioned before our 5er is just new to us. 2006, brought it home in the Fall, parked it and that was that. We did spend some time looking around it and investigating stuff

We have noticed inside the windows along the bottom, inside the track that there is a black "fuzzy" type material. Seems the back of this material is a soft plastic....There is also a screw inside the track.
This material is full of mold. The screw is completely rusted. I don't think we can remove it as I am sure it will just fall apart with the pressure of a screwdriver.

I realize this is from moisture, but how can we repair all the windows affected and stop it from happening it again.
Can we buy more of that material in order to replace it ??
What is the best moisture control available ??
The bottoms of my day/night shades are turning all "wavy" from the moisture

Thnx again to all

What you are seeing is generally caused by the heat on one side of the window and cold on the other side causing the condensation to form. All you can do is keep things clean. Use a dehumidifier of some sort inside the trailer to reduce the moisture level.
