3 RV Accessories to Eliminate Winter Condensation Problems

It’s well known that winter condensation problems can be both annoying and detrimental to your RV over time. Windows full of condensation leak water that can delaminate fiberglass, rust metal frame work, rot wood structure, and ruin wall board and wall coverings  So it’s best, as they say, to “nip the drip in the bud” as soon as possible. Thankfully, there are affordable RV Accessories that can help you do that. Here’s a rundown on three of the best ones:
Eva-Dry Dehumidifiers
Eva-Dry EDV 2200 Dehumidifier

Adding an Eva-Dry Dehumidifier to your camper is one surefire way to beat back condensation problems. The company makes several different models that range in size from petite to high capacity. Some of the dehumidifiers, like the EDV-500 and EH-500F, do not require a power source and utilize renewable crystals. Others, like the EDV-2200 and EDV-1100, run on 120v electricity and feature a removable drip container. The drip container is designed to be easily emptied and cleaned in between uses.
Dri-Z-Air Cans & Crystals
The Dri-Z-Air Company also manufactures a handy condensation solution for campers. It consists of a canister that gets filled with odorless, non-flammable, water absorbing crystals. The crystals are made with a calcium chloride material that will need to be kept away from salt sensitive materials. If you do decide to go with the canister and crystal combination, keep in mind that you may need to buy more than one. In general, one unit is capable of only controlling moisture in a 10’ x 10’ interior camping space or less.
Roof Vents
Of course opening a window or roof vent can prove to be beneficial too. It will allow the excess hot air to escape, thereby reducing the camper’s interior humidity levels. There is an array of roof vents on the market today. Some feature power operated doors. Others require manual operation. They may be paired with other camper parts and supplies like Barker Vent Stik/Knob Kits
