Condensation

So today was the first day we were in the bus with our electric heaters and no air conditioner running. It hit 39 degrees last night. While it is not much, we had some condensation on the windows. I am concerned it will continue to be a problem. Is it ok to run a dehumidifier with the air conditioner, and should a dehumidifier be enough to remove this little bit of water from the air. I think it is because 2 humans and 2 dogs are in there.

We use electric non propane heat, so I cant believe the heaters are responsible. Any thoughts?

How have you all dealt with condensation?

I have spent around 10 full Winters in my bus and fifth wheel trailer.

In any cold or damp weather definitely required a dehumidifier. Almost 3 years up North of Seattle. It was a "must have ".

My dehumidifier was a permanent fixture. I plumbed the drain outside and ran it continuesly through the Winter.

If you are going to spend time in cold country in would definitely recommend running a good dehumidifier.

I tried a small one without much success. The full sized ones worked much better..
