I've got a 2003 22ft CCD. It was stored for a number of years before I got it so I don't know if that's part of the problem or what. But, if I have it running and leave for a while and come back to it it does feel/ smell moist and damp. Kind of like a cave feels and smells when you go into it after being in the dry sun. I hope that analogy gives you an idea of what I'm dealing with. Or, another way to describe it would be it feels kind of like a swamp cooler.
Any ideas as to what could be the problem if there is one?
The first thing I would do is get a means of measuring the actual humility in the trailer. Once measured I would turn the AC on for some time and recheck. Two things should have happened. The humility should have gone down and there should be water dripping from the drain tube. If these are present the AC is working.
If the humidity is not going down the problem may be the trailer has a leak. If this is the case the AC while attempting to pulling down moisture may also be pulling the smell from the insulation into the cabin area.
