    Re: Condensation in our new North Trail 28BRS

    Moving the mattress away from the wall 1-2 inches fixed the problem for us. A friend who had the same problem actually got mold formation. They fixed the problem the same way as us. Overall moisture control is important and some ventilation is always needed. However, when it's cold outside, moisture will always find it's way to a cooler area and condense if the surface temperature is below the dew point of the air.

    Thats a good idea too but for me, I lose my pillow down that gap. I hate when that happens!

    Off course the best solution is to head south - to the deep south! Texas for us at the end of the month. Looking forward to mexican food again.

    We run a small tabletop dehumidifier, especially spring and fall. It removes the excess moisture and adds some additional heat.
