    vans and condensation !!!

    in the back of a transit, everything is soaked with it and my tools are going rusty !!!!!!!

    would a roof vent help ?? maybe one of those spinning things you see on some vans or would letting in a vented panel in the sides work ??

    anyone know what else i can do to stop or even just reduce it a bit ??

    cheers guys

    Chris you have a water leak in there ,you need to find/fix it or your stuck with the problem,A Flitner(spiny thing) will have a very marginal effect on the situation,Get some ouside with a hose and you inside with a torch ! -And remember allways fix a leak from the outside.good luck,Bry

    cheers boss

    i did wonder about a leak and had a cursory glance at the door seals etc which all seemed ok, its odd as theres no obv water on the floor of the van, just all over the inside of the roof and its dripping off !!!!

    i'll recheck with the hose and report back

    thanks again

    It can happen, hot air left in the van after you've had the heater on, cold spell on non insulated panels and you have a condensor effectively .It's made worse if you also have a water leak as that will also ride back up in the hot air and recondense.

    If you can park it in your driveway and get an extn lead to it, you can leave one of those 240V tube heaters in there overnight.

    You can buy those small non electric dehumidifiers that will suck the moisture in, might help.
