    Most of the water condenses on your window after and during the early stages after sunrise. Very little occurs during earlier parts of the night. If you are worried about ingress within the dash then I would have thought some waterproofing could be added there. This may also confirm or rebuke your assertion that much of the condensed water has already breached your dash. However I would have thought that manufacturers would have taken cognisance of this possibility, and taken required measures.

    Also as hairydog points out your windscreen acts as a convector for condensation. If you prevent this, condensation will occur in other parts of your van.

    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    Don’t forget also, they are great for your home also.

    I found the smaller squeggee was better for the van, whilst the larger is more suited to household use.

    Ours stopped charging just after 2 years, I knew it was just the charger but we had a free extended warranty from Homebase so I took it back and they gave us a replacement which was a much better design than the first generation.
    Again the charger stopped working on the new one so I bought a replacement because I wanted the plug to make a UBS charger lead for it, so apart from the chargers being a dodgy it's been a great bit of kit and works great.

    In my defence 9 times out of 10 it does look like I'm listening.
