Hi folks. I took the RV living step  fulltime 7 years ago. I bought a new Salem Estate Villa 39 ft park model. I have a campground that (must remain confidential)gives me a great situation. The worst two things I deal with are 1.mildew + mold which I get every year around end of summer when humidity is at worst- lost materials, now carpets, pictures, shoes, clothes (my last sport coat) , and important papers- all that I thought I had handled properly. 2. It gets below freezing cold in Jan and February- the furnace, space heaters, and insulation just don't quite make it. I have been coming up with solutions to these problems every year. It gets a little better each time. The two best things? I hear the birds singing in the morning! I have plenty of glass and can look out at the trees and the woods every day anytime I want!

Mildew and carpets:  Lay a new NON carpet floor.  After you do that, I bet a lot of mildew  issues will be gone.  Ask  the Campground owner if you can  move your unit to  the sunny section  of the campground.

But most of all:

If you LOVE it where  you live,  what does it matter?

Good advice Ziplock. Not to far from you- i'm in Lancaster county Pa.

Considering ripping the carpets out- for example- carpet under the bed - and I get mildew. Carpet next to the bed at the slideout walls- where my sleeping head lays adjacent- breathing that in? Carpet goes! I tried to live with it but no way anymore. As far as moving the trailer to a sunny spot- not available here. Good idea though.

Thanks

So...........

Why is it so wet where  your camper  is?

Yep,  you are about 2 hours from me.

There are many campgrounds in  Lancaster county.

Is Starlite near you?

I expected you to be in Florida or right on the beach, but Lancaster? Hmmmm, sounds like a lot of moisture for PA. I hope you have a dehumidifier running full time!

BWheck:  I live in southern Lancaster Co....the humidity and rain have been brutal this summer.  Not to mention the rains we had last Friday!  We have a dehumidifier in our house...I'd get one for the camper.  All that humidity can't be good for your camper and the mildew can't be good for you.
