Dash gauges fogging

Has anyone had an issue with dashboard gauges fogging up INSIDE the glass?
2000 Dutch Star. Has been a really great coach, many trouble-free years,so I'm not gonna sweat this too much. Outside weather conditions don't seem to matter
ie hot,cold,sunny,rainy. Running defroster on high doesn't seem to help either.

My 2003 DS on a Freightliner chassis air gauges fog at the bottom. And, like yours weather does not seem to be a factor. Only the one gauge and only at the bottom portion.

Seeing they are air gauges I wonder if they are fed with a air line tube and some how air is escaping the connection in back of gauge fogging the glass.

Mine do it to

Run the Ac hard and they fog up, mostly the lower ones. The fuel gauge is the 1st to fog and It doesn't take much ac to make it turn. The others take a while. I guess the air ducts behind the dash cause this.
Iv'e only had the Rv since June 2015 so I assume it's always done it. We are the 3rd owners, even though Holiday world told us it was a one owner coach : /

How about putting some insulation behind the gauges or some of that foam squint stuff.

The gauges are electric (Stewart Warner), so no air lines going to them. At least that's the way it is on a 2000 Spartan MM chassis. Of all my gauges the only two that fog are the air gauges, but they clear quickly after starting to drive. Never have been able to understand why they fog, and it only happens once in a while, not very often.
