We have been spending 5 nights now in our trailer (new to us) and because of the weather (lots of rain) we were unable to keep any vents open at night. Each morning we have tons of condensation on our windows. Is there anything that can be done to lower the condensation effect ?
Would a fan help? Is there some kind of product which would absorb humidity?

Hi: FredericL... If you install a MaxxAir Vent cover over your roof vent you can then leave it open even in the pouring rain. Try here. We have a MaxxFan in our Escape 5.0 and have never used the roof A/C...just the fan...They are GREAT!!!

We are thinking of getting these, Window/Maxx Louvered Vent For RV Sliding Windows seen at the site Alf listed. Several trailers at the rally had them installed and I talked to a few people that were very happy with them.

Actually, you WANT any condensation to be on the windows where it will drain down and out (you can speed the process with a squeegee).
