“The condensation clings to the windows, settles on the walls, and even seeps between joints. If you don’t have a way to reduce the humidity, mold and mildew will start to form, and metal structures can start corroding — posing health risks for you and reducing the life of your recreational vehicle. As an RV owner, it’s essential that you stay on top of the moisture issue”.
