Dehumidifiers

Looking for a dehumidifier for our 35QB4. Definitely want one with the digital display, yet not so huge it gets in the way. Anybody use one, or have any recommendations? We never used one in the past, but now that we're full timing, it's almost a must.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

We use a dehumidifier would not be without it during the winter. We have a Danby and are happy with the results.

I have one Sunpentown SD-65E. It is digital display. It is suppose to control 30-85 percent. It has a turbo speed and that is a lot of air coming out of the top of it. It also has a hose port for continuous drainage. All I looked at are large and windy. But I found a place for it. Oh yea I don't have to wipe the water off the inside of the windows anymore.

Dehumidifiers

Thanks for all the input. I bought one yesterday. Don't remember the brand, but it's a 35 pint with the digital display and several options. I ran it last night for the first time in the camper and man what a difference. Used to we'd wake up with a slight muggy feeling in there, now dry as can be.

Right now we're running the dehumidifier on 50%, which seems to make a huge difference. What is everybody else running theirs on?

I keep the one in my house at 45%. I've always read that in the 40s is where you want humidity to be. I know if it gets down in the 30s, everything static charged. I would say 45-50% would be about right.

I'll bump it down a notch and try 45. Can't hurt.
