I have read that about 2" of sprayed polyurethane foam insulation will insulate a structure well enough to halt condensation, FWIW.

I'll have to check that out. I did see in another thread a product used
on boats. Constructed differently, but does same job.

Having trouble again.......but now working it out.

We did some shopping today. It was a bit cooler and made a good
day to get out. Just as we headed home, we got another down pour.
That should make and keep it cooler another day or two.

This is some stuff we picked up at Lowe's in Broken Arrow, OK.

Then we headed over to Sam's Club in Tulsa, OK to pick up a few more
supplies and I found this. At Lowe's it was $20 for 4. Sam's has these
$22 for 8. The book in the pic above came from Sam's Club.

This was my first step. I laid some reflectix from Lowe's on the storage floor.

Then my second step was to lay some foam tile from Sam's Club over the reflectix on the storage floor.

My third step was to lay some reflectix on the wall behind the couch and
also behind the water tank. I used some 3M double sided tape and used
my office stapler to anchor it.

My fourth step was to put in some remaining blue foam tile behind the
water tank on the wall over the reflectix. Used 3M double sided tape to
attach tile to the wall.

I thought I would finish the right side with blue tile with a red stripe
of red tile in the center. When I went back in the house to get the
rest of the tiles (no more blue).........lol. So I finished the wall out
with the red foam tile. If I had thought it out a bit more I could have
done what I was thinking. But it's been a long day and my thinker
isn't as good when I'm tired..........lol. And since it's out of sight, I
doubt I will redo it.........lol.

I then reinstalled the platform.

OUCH!........I just remembered I forgot to put the trim pieces back on
the ends of the platform. Maybe I can insert them without removing the
couch again.........I did remember to replace the storage space door.

Here the couch is back in place stretched out into the bed.
This is the position it has to be in to get to the screws when
taking it out and also when putting it back in. The back screws
go in while in the flat position. The front screws have to have
the seat portion lifted up.

Couch back in place. I left my tools and accessories setting out.
Just too tired which made me lazy...........Too much for an old fat man.

Now I think my next project will be underneath the sink area.
One day at a time and one project at a time.

Thanks for viewing.

If it's very cool out and you are running your heater then the dehumidifier is a good idea. Can't remember the brand but we bought it at Walmart. Tried the real small one off Amazon and it didn't work. This was a medium size one. It took up some floor space but worked like a charm! We were afraid of a moldy mattress too but it never happened.

FYI the dehumidifier is about the size of a tall trash can. They didn't have anything any smaller when we bought it and we desperately needed it.

I have a dehumidifier like you describe.
We bought it a couple years ago for the house.
We use it now mainly in our storm cellar.
We periodically have to wipe the moisture off the steel walls,
and we run the dehumidifier when we think we may have to
spend time in it.................LOL

I will probably try Jim's suggestion put that mat under the mattress.
I've always like do-dad's and such.

Just FYI I use those foam pads all over the place myself and they have some at Sears of all places with a thin indoor/outdoor carpet on top that I use on my floor all year long.
They are all Gray too so ,well,you know!

I have had mine down for several years and they look new still and are easily shaken out and stuck back in when they get too nasty to vacuum.

In the winter I have camped to under 10 degrees and they floor is still OK to walk on in bare feet on the tiles.

I bought spares even to make sure I always have enough good ones.

The whole floor in the back of my Sprinter is also covered with them but they have not worn as well,it is a work truck.
