We have a Ford EB E250 and we live in the Pacific Northwest.
In Fall 2009, we had prepared this van for the Winter - drained water and such. No known problems. The van has since been parked in our driveway and has not been opened for four months.
To our surprise yesterday when we opened the van, everything inside was coated with condensation and dank. We popped the top and the rear-driver corner of the pop-top's canvas was darkened with mold.
We are always careful about making sure the canvas is not sticking out from under the pop-top when we lower it, in order to prevent any wicking of water. And we do not think we have a roof leak.
Any advice on:
- Where else within the Van should we look as to the cause of this problem?[/*:m:1kzyseq4]
- How we should begin cleaning the canvas of mold without damaging it?[/*:m:1kzyseq4]
- How can we prevent future condensation problems?[/*:m:1kzyseq4]
- Is there a recommendation as to a commercial service in the Seattle area that can thoroughly amend our issue?[/*:m:1kzyseq4]
Thanks for the help,
Jeff in Seattle
