Dehumidifier Advice

Good Day all-
I have a 33' salem on a permanent site and for the first time will be using it all winter. I'm looking at a Frigidaire 50 pint dehumidifier which draws 4.8 amps, and features continuous drain. I'm not an electrician but specs state it's 115V which I believe from a practical standpoint doesn't mean too much for my purposes, it may be the same as 110V? is this true?
Also, this unit is bigger than I need and weighs in at 37 lbs. Is it practical to leave on counter space when in use so I can drain into the sink?

Any useful commentary would be appreciated. Thank you

115VAC and 110VAC you are OK with either. If you are concerned about leaving on a counter, set it on a short platform and run the drain into the shower. I did that until I finally added a drain hose that runs through the enclosed bottom and out on the ground.
