Welcome to IRV2. I believe you have found the friendliest site on the Internet. Post often and lets us know about your travel experiences.

I have never experienced a dampness problem but I suspect you have a leak some where. I am going to short cut your post to the MH - Problems,Solutions and Aftermarket Forum where you should receive some suggestions.

Humidity collects on the windows and AC vents...what you are describing sounds more like a leak.

Hi fill4,
Welcome to iRV2. Can you describe the condition a little more.
<LI>Is the dampness always there, rain or shine, night or day?
<LI>Is it worse when it rains or always the same?
<LI>Is it worse after coach water use has been high (washer/shower/diswashing/etc)?
<LI>How long has the dampness been there?[/list]
As a diagnostic step, consider:
1. Looking at the roof for potential leak spots.
2. Determine if any water lines are run through that area of the coach.
3. Purchase a de-humidifier and dry the area out.
4. Put the coach on tank water to see if the area stays dry.
5. Assuming your are on CG water, do you have a pressure regulator on the incoming water line?

Call Triple E and talk to them. They will give you an honest answer if they have had that problem before and even help you fix it.

fill 4, first let me welcome you to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here. Be sure to check out the new changes coming this weekend. There is a link on the main forum page in the announcement at the top of the page.
You have to control the humidity to prevent issues like this from destroying a coach. This is not to say you do not have a leak and it too will destroy a coach. We soon found we needed a dehumidifier when we moved from Az back east. Also you have to allow airflow into cabinets. Keep the air at a decent dew point, allow light and air circulation and you will not have any mildew or mold problems that are very hard if not impossible to correct otherwise.
