Temperature difference

There is a big temperature difference between living area and storage areas of my TT causing condensation to form under sink and drip unto shelf. I temporarily stopped it by placing a small fan and leaving door open but having to move fan every time I want to grab something from fridge or under sink. Anyone has a simpler solution? I know TT is basically a bread box with minimum insulation but I can see it staying damp under there and possibly causing mold issues.

I can't speak to the condensation issue . Have you just tried leaving the doors cracked all the time to avoid the temp differences? Does this happen all the time or at AC startup? Do you know if warm moist air is leaking into this area?

I can help with your signature, though. If you go to your user profile you can add this information and it will show up on you messages each time. That is a huge help to others in helping you out.

Good luck. Be sure to follow up with what fixes your issue do others can learn from your experiences.

Agree on the warm moist air coming in under there. Temp mismatch to the point of condensation doesn't sound right. Winter will be much worse.

Did u check to ensure all plumbing entrances exits are sealed? If your bath is along the same wall check there too.

yeah I think i would start with how the air is entering the cabinet space. It's gotta be getting in there from somewhere.... it's ok to seal hole, srapy foam, caulk whatever it takes.

Of course the forest river website is naturally lacking pictures of the model so we can get a grip on where the storage is and how its door is configured. I'll try to find a video walk through.

I wonder if you put a fan in the storage if you could then feel air flow under the cabinet and track down how it's getting in.

Plasma800 you are too good! The AC unit pours cold air over the sink faucets if directed that way. Can the air flow be directed away from the sink? Also look for outside air incursion under the sink. If you find some. Plug them with expanding foam. In fact, go over the trailer and plug holes like where water lines or electrical stuff go from point A to B. Allot of RVs have electrical stuff under dinette seats. This helps keep critters out.

The Ac is directly across from sink but it's condensation sort like on the outside of a cold can of soda. I'm going to leave doors open until i can possibly cut out and place vents in doors.

If your camper has vents you may want to close the cold air dump and divert the cold air flow from the sink. That would solve your problem without any holes.
