On the Road with Sue: Zion National Park

Day One on the road has taught me that this trip may not really be about the destinations – it’s the journey. The breathtaking scenery we found driving through northern Arizona and southern Utah was overwhelming. I had recently asked a very well-traveled RVer (49 states in seven years) which was his favorite state to travel, and he immediately answered “Utah.” I was shocked, but now I see why. Fortunately, we live close enough to go back – many times, I’m sure.

These water droplets will form on a variety of surfaces inside the RV, including the windows, walls, and counter-tops. It is important to keep RV condensation under control; otherwise your RV may be at risk of developing a mold problem. In addition to mold growth and its health issues, a buildup of condensation can also cause wood rot and corrosion. All of these can affect the overall look, performance, and value of your RV.
