Water Dripping From Fan During Freeze/Thaw/Freeze/Thaw

The title pretty well explains the problem. At night the trailer is covered with a lot of frost and ice, then it will warm during the day, freezes again etc.

I have noticed water on the floor below the fantastic fan in the kitchen during the day and night.
Not a lot - but seems to be coming from the crank.

Haven't noticed this during rain.

Anyone had/have this problem? Any remedy??

Thanks.

That's from condensation that gathers on the inside of the lid. You can get those insulating pads for roof vents, and stuff them into the vents.

overlander, wow! Thanks for the quick reply.

For some reason, it is not dripping from the bedroom vent. I'm not complaining - otherwise my bed would get wet. I also have electric heater on in BR at night, so that could be the reason. The condensation gets dried up.

I will mosey down to dealership and find those pads. Probably a good thing for both vents, regardless. Will help keep the trailer a bit warmer.

Again...thanks for your super-duper fast reply!!

Fantastic Vent offers an insulated dome for your vent. That will probably help reduce the vent condensation as well.

I have used a couple layers bubble wrap during Winter storage...... the one with the "tiny bubbles".
