It is mold. You need to run a dehumidifier.Ok will give it a try coolmom42

RE: White powder ??

We too just had this issue for the first time since owning our TT. The spots were localized to the center of the camper, down low mostly and all near the kitchen. We clean it really good each time before storing. There was not a ton of it, but just enough to cause concern. We cleaned it up with bleach and water, wiped everything in the camper down with a weak solution just to be sure. I think here in NC since we've had the hottest and most consistently high humidity summer I can remember that it caused this to happen. There was no musty smell at all. dlos , Our T.T. started having this issue for the past 2 summers, but we notice more this year since it's been a very wet summer in Michigan. And having a very wooded parcel does not help in drying things out.

RE: White powder ??

Are you sure it hasn't been used as a mobile meth lab? Have you seen Breaking Bad? Just kidding. It sounds like white mold or mildew. You can't really tell without testing. They are treated the same and have the same cause. High humidity and no air flow. Put a dehumidifier in your tub while you are away. Loved the series..lol

RE: White powder ??

If it's mold, it Wil likely have a musty smell in it whe you first walk in after being closed up for a few weeks. No musty smell...

RE: White powder ??

Sounds like a form of mildew. We keep our trailer in an outdoor, but covered storage facility down here and had what you describe in the galley area of our WhiteHawk but nowhere else. I had the only roof vent in the trailer open (in the bath) when I discovered it. Cracked open two windows on the street side of the trailer. The improved ventilation/air circulation apparently did the trick. My fix may not be practical in your situation, but if you can somehow improve air circulation it may help by moderating the interior temperature and humidity level in the trailer.Thomasmnile , I just did this with several windows especially in the trouble area this past weekend to see if this will help. Thanks for your advise.

RE: White powder ??

White powder? You're not hiding your stash in the trailer are you? Nope, we take our trash with us vacuum and sweep the trailer after each use.

RE: White powder ??

RE: White powder ??

RE: White powder ??

Do you leave anything running when gone? Furnace/fans/AC? I'm guessing not a humidifier in the summer, but some of those can leave a dusting of mineral deposits. Nothing its left running. Windows are also shut.

White powder ??

We have a destination trailer up in Michigan. We go there just about every weekend. this year we have not had the time to make it as much as we usually do. So, when we skip maybe 2 or 3 weeks of not using the trailer we find this white powder all over the cabinets and on the front bottom of the stove. The problem seem to be only in the center of the trailer ( not in the bed rooms of bathroom) Could this be mold? Thank you all in advance.

RE: Where do I put my level when leveling T.T?

I level based on the entry door frame. If the entry door does not swing open or close, but stays at any spot you put it, your camper is about as level as it can get. My previous camper had an arch to the floor. The middle was high, the ends were low. No matter how it was parked, it always felt like we were waling up and down hill. I finally realized if the entry door frame was level, everything else was too (except the arched floor). So, I've been doing it that way ever since. I found out once the entry frame is level front to back, and side-to-side, the refrigerator, the counter tops, the stove, the refrigerator, everything is pretty much level too (including the water in the toilet bowl. One trick you can use also, when backing or parking your camper, eyeball an object that is straight vertical (like a building), then eyeball a straight up and down line (corner or something) on your camper. When two appear to be parallel up and down, you've got a pretty close Left-Right level. However, old barns are not a good source though. I did that at my in-laws farm and when standing in the camper, it was clear out of whack. When I really looked at the barn, found out it was really leaning quite a bit. So, the door frame still works the best. http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii142/dutchmensport/Camping%20Tips/20150419_104334-1_zpsira0ruux.jpg http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii142/dutchmensport/Camping%20Tips/20150419_104311-1_zps0kuchmes.jpg I have never seen this Dutchmensport I think I will give this a try. Thank's, and thank you to everyone for your input and advise..:B

Where do I put my level when leveling T.T?

Some people say level the refrigerator only, others say just place level on floor, others say place it on against the outside wall of the T.T. and others I have seen this one. Use the bumper of the T.T. or the A frame of the T.T. ( front ) Which one it's the must important or accurate way on doing this? Because if I check them all they all give me a different reading on the (Bubble level )Which it's driving me bananas:S Thank you all

RE: Grease on the ball?

A friend we camp with always puts grease on his trailer ball. He says I should do it as well. Is this a good idea? I always put some grease at the beginning of the season, that's it. ;)

RE: Traded 5er for TT

Someone asked about the towing difference. The 5er was always great so this was a concern. However this tt pulls great. I have an F350 diesel dually that always performs perfectly. With the new hitch that Camping World set us up with there are no issues at all. Happy camping...........Congrats on the new T.T. and keep on camping!!!:)

RE: Eating out

So we just went on our first week long camping trip with the family to a new camping "resort" in the area. Loved it, the place was magnificent! We packed our travel trailer full of food and snacks, yet we ended up buying food at either the grill at the resort, or at the pool, or at a local establishment. We ended up bringing back home a ton of food that we simply did not use. I cooked breakfast every morning, which we all sat down to eat, but after that, it was literally like eat when and where you want! Best practices question: what is the best way to plan meals and cook while on the road? Pre cook meals at home and take along? Go to the store every day and purchase groceries to cook as you go along? Cook all the meals at the campground when you are ready? Give in to the fact that eating out while on vacation is a normal human response? What are easy to make meals while on the road? I have a 29' travel trailer with a full kitchen, RV size fridge, and an external gas grill. Thoughts? If we are staying a week camping we usually treat or self to go out twice for dinner during our stay to a nice local restaurant or diner. This will give the wife a break from cooking since I don't ( Believe it or not, do not have the patience to cook or grill):o

RE: Exterior Solar Plug In....

... Oh, but yes there are waterproof controllers sold by Morningstar in 6, 10, and 20A versions. I once used their 6A on a 130W panel by placing the controller INSIDE the battery box on the tongue. HTH; John
