Managing Moisture In Your RV

by | Feb 3, 2018


Managing moisture in your RV is not a difficult process. We all get in a hurry wanting to head to our next destination, but if it’s been raining and the sliders are wet, you could introduce unwanted moisture in you RV. This can lead to sour smells or worse, mold that could impact your health and damage your belongings.

We recently had to move our 5th wheel after two days of hard rain. The sliders were wet, but with about 15 to 20 minutes of prep time using a long handled squeegee and a large beach towel, we were able to head down the road to our next campground.

The preparation didn’t end with drying the sliders. We take an extra step using the one off Dri-Z or DampRid products for several days to make sure we’ve removed that extra bit of moisture floating around the inside of the RV. We’ve found this to be a less expensive option without the use of a noisy electric dehumidifier.

These are easy steps and great insurance that your RV stays dry, free from mold and smell, making your trip more enjoyable.
