Welcome :welcome:

If they only get damp when the A/C is on, there are two possibilities - condensation from the cold air, or the drip pan is leaking inside.

We were in the mountains last week without any hookups, and the weather was perfect - no A/C needed.

You need to look how the unit is draining. In its normal function, the process of "conditioning the air" is that moisture is removed, but it has to go somewhere. Most A/C system will have a drain for this purpose. The more humid the area, the more the moisture is collected.

Look inside the air conditioner to spot where this water is going? Since you have a small air space and you mention it's gets too cold, then check the settings. If you have it set too cold it will remove a lot of water. If the A/C doesn't have a setting then it could be too big for the air space in your camper. Some air conditioners only have a pan that collects water and depends on evaporation to remove it and if it is generating too much water it doesn't evaporate quick enough and it will overflow. To prevent this problem the preferred method is to have a drain (to the outside) and this might be broken, disconnected or clogged with debris which might also cause the water to overflow into the camper.

Maybe the moisture is from something else, like leaky plumbing, or a loose plumbing connection, or condensation and the like. Whatever it is, you MUST find it and fix it and learn how to eliminate it. Moisture in a rig is bad and possibly dangerous if allowed to collect and fester. Besides causing rot in pourous surfaces (wood, carpet, etc.) it will also cause mold! And in small enclosure you don't want this!

Good luck with this and I hope you post what you find. This can help others if they have a similar problem and especially if you have a solution.
