You could try a small electric heater if your coach is plugged in but they eat a lot of juice. I have covers over all my roof vents and leave them open a little for air circulation, never had condensation problems.

Well you'll need something to remove the moisture. Running a heater will evaporate the condensation but it will still be in the air.

Something like this guy.

Or keep some Damprid in the RV.

Just a thought here, when we have returned our Vegas to storage and turned off the refrigerator, there is quite a bit of melt in the freezer. I usually go back the next day with a towel and wipe it all out. If you leave the freezer door closed tight in Florida, you'll have mold in no time.

There is a little sliding tab in the latches to both refrigerator doors that will keep the door open just a little in storage. After the inside dries out, I will use this feature to allow a little air in.

I use those whenever our Axis is in storage. Granted it isn't nearly as humid here in MI (especially in Jan!) as it is in FL though. Using those has kept the refer clean though.

The only problem is remembering to close the doors before driving off.
