2009 Grand Junction GCR

I recently purchased a (slightly) used 2009 Grand Junction GCR 40 ft 5 th wheel, 3 slides. It is winter here..highs in the low 30's and lows in the single digits. Unit is skirted with plywood and pink insulation. We live in the coach full time. The problem is the bedroom wall behind the headboard and under the window frosts inside, as well as the wall behind the couch in the living area. I can feel cold air near the bottom of both slides. The bedroom is located in the nose of the coach. I have stuffed insulation entirely around both slides behind the gaskets as well as apply tape to protect the insulation. Any ideas on a cure for this? Thanks !!

Take a look outside at the bottom of the bedroom slide and stuff insulation there. I would say also use insulating tape after stuffing insulation in that gap. The tape should help keep out the cold air.

Good luck.
