If you are plugged in, put a fan blowing at the place where condensation is happening. Gas furnaces pump out moisture, and it will seek out the coolest spots to settle on.

Get yourself a laser thermometer and point it around the rig near where this occurs. The thermometer will sense the possibility that insulation might have slipped down inside the wall causing this problem.


Gas furnaces do NOT put out moisture, the combustion is sealed from the internal air being recirculated inside the trailer. Now a catalytic heater WILL place moisture into the trailer.

Make sure the mattress is away from the wall, and get a dehumidifier.

We've come to conclusion that is must be condensation due to poor/lack of insulation. Not water from outside....dry, but with temps in 30's and warm inside with Elec heat, the moisture reappears.
Once outside temp warms, not wet.
Thx for all your responses and suggestions.
