Unhappy Sweat forming inside closet

Hi, I was just in the camper searching for the water pump and found it and a potential problem!

In the cedar closet, on the inside wall - bedroom side - there were droplets of water! YIKES! These were random and I wiped it down with a paper towel - it appears to have been doing this for a while because a bracket below had rusty screws. I checked the wiped area about 10 min later and it was back - hence I think it is sweating.

The weather here has been torrid and humid - came home on Wed from a 3 day camping trip where we were running the AC full time and kept it quite cold in the camper for the dogs. It rained last night and this morning - I have the roof vents open (Max Air covers) and the North side windows cracked open (same side as the offending closet) just using the locks in the up position to hold the windows open about 1/4".

Any thoughts on this? The camper was pressure tested at the factory last year - doesn't seem to be sopping under - damp, yes. Should I put a dehumidifier in there?

Check the sewer vent pipe cover gaskets. They only last 2 to 3 years.
