Find Ways to Eliminate Excess Moisture
As mentioned above, RV furnaces tend to put moisture out into the air, creating tons of condensation. That said, the furnace is far from the only thing that can and will create condensation in your RV. In fact, when RV camping in cold weather, condensation can become a real problem that could potentially cause major damage.
You can reduce the amount of moisture you create by avoiding propane appliances, opting for electric options instead. Heading to a bathhouse for your shower can also help. When you do have to shower in the rig or use the propane oven or stove, be sure to open a window or vent to let the moisture escape.
In addition to all of this, we also recommend investing in a dehumidifier and placing DampRid in any closets and cabinets that tend to collect moisture.
Cover Windows and Vents
RVs aren’t exactly the most insulated structures on earth. Because of this, a lot of heat tends to escape through windows and vents when winter RV camping. It can also sneak out under the door. This is an issue that makes it very hard to keep the rig warm in the coldest months.
To avoid this problem, consider covering your windows and vents with Reflectix. Adding a towel or blanket at the bottom of the door will also help by preventing warm air from seeping out, while also keeping cold air out.
Consider RV Skirting
Another way to improve the insulation on your RV for winter camping is to add RV skirting. Depending on how you go about this, it can be a fairly big job that only those with stationary rigs will want to take on. That said, there are more portable options out there for those who will be moving a lot during the colder months.
No matter which skirting option you choose, you’re sure to see a significant improvement in the temperature of your RV. Not only that, but enclosing the underside of your RV will also help protect your plumbing system from freezing.
