!Have just returned from taking our newish (2006) Aventura away for
!the first time during the winter and while away (despite the heating
!being on 24/7) noticed condensation in just one area under the seating
!on the front offside panel. Enough to leave a puddle on the floor.
!Is this to be expected and, if so, why only in this one area -
!couldn't see any anywhere else? Is the wall insulation faulty -
!warranty item?
!Any advice much appreciated.

Provide more ventilation from inside to under seating.
Your local dealer will have about 1 1/2 inch dia perforated plastic bungs.

Apologies - seem to have posted here by mistake - have re-posted at
the top under "Condensation Problem?

However - there is a ventilation hole in the floor wiithin 6ins of the
area concerned - wondered if this was allowing in the cold air, to
then condense.

Presumably, shouldn't close this vent hole off?

Don't block up any ventilation holes unless the manufacturer has
provided a means to reduce the level of ventilation. Some ventilation
is essential to make up for oxygen burnt and allow escape of the
products of combustion.
