Damp Basement

Hello all,

I have been getting the unit ready to start heading out this season. I uncovered it last week and when in the unit. Everything was dry and in good shape! Today I was working in the basmement compartment and I noticed my carpet was a bit damp. Has anyone else ever experienced this? I again went through everything above the basement and that was dry.

Any ideas out there?
The unit is a 2008 Sprinter 311 BHS.

Potentially you could have a basement door that's leaking. However, usually the basement is colder than the rest of the trailer and there's a lot of bare steel in the structure that's wide open to condensation. We find that in the early spring and late fall, if we camp with electric heaters (to save propane when it's not too cold) the basement exposed steel is usually damp in the mornings. We always open the basement to help dry it out during the day and close it up before it starts getting cool in the evening. Possibly you've got a similar problem.
