Mattress Moisture Issue

Hi. I searched but didn't see another question like this. Have you had mattress moisture? On another forum, I see that people are putting a open weave pad under the mattress to prevent condensation. What do you think? I have not had this problem, but wonder if it would be a good preventative.

I suppose it would depend on the type of mattress and the climate you are in. I have a foam mattress that sits on a plywood base. I keep a memory foam topper on my mattress.

I spend winters in southern AZ and summers overlooking Lake Washington, near Seattle. The only excess moisture problem I've ever had was caused by Sena setting an open bottle of water on the bed and letting it tip over.

I would think that if condensation was a problem in your RV, the mattress is just part of what you'd need to protect. A dehumidifier sounds like a better solution to me.

Some RVers get moisture at the head of the bed where the mattress is tight against the wall, especially in winter. It's advised just to move it away from the wall a few inches in the morning to let it dry out. It's from the cold wall and the normal moisture humans give off. I've not heard of moisture under the mattress.

I suspect mattress moisture issues under a mattress are more likely in a TT where the bed is installed over an unconditioned storage compartment. Motor homes and most 5th wheels don't have that problem.
