Default window clouding/fogging on 95 camry le

Have a 1995 camry LE and when damp outside and mild temperatures the
inside windows fog terribly and you must run A/C to clear. What is
going on? Everything seems to work normally with the AC and heat
system. I have owned the car since 1996. 174000 miles and runs great
but can't figure this out? Anyone...Bueller?

Make sure that the fresh air control isn't on recirculate.

===================
There could be a pinpoint leak in the heater that would cause the
interior to fog up.
Replacing the factory coolant and distilled water regularly prevents
this.

Tried it both on and off recirc. No difference.

See if you can verify that the recirculate control is working
properly. You may have a broken or disconnected cable there. A
coolant leak would produce a sweetish smell in the interior of
the car.

Thanks for the suggestions. Tried checking for a difference in the
recirc position and there seams to be a sizable clunk when you open and
close it and resistance as well. The a/c is noticably cooler in the
recirc position as well so I believe it is working. No sweet smell just
a damp/musty odor of sorts.

I'm pretty much out of ideas. Maybe you have a climate that
just promotes this. I've heard of the plastics used in Japanese
cars outgassing and leaving deposits, but not just in one kind of
weather...

Check to see if the trunk is leaking. I had a car one time that the gasket
on the trunk was leaking and water was getting the car and would frost the
glasses from the inside.

The moisture is coming from some place so if the air is circulating and
you are getting fresh air from outside, either the windshield is so cold
that it is forcing moisture to condense or you have a leak in the heater
core that is allowing moisture to the inside of the windshield. Check
your coolant level and verify that you aren't using any at all.
