Anyone know of product they recommend to control moisture inside the trailer during winter storage?

I just leave two of my (covered) top vents open. Works for me.

As posted above, this works for me also. As long as you have air moving in the camper it will help it stay dry. This one reason I do not cover my rig in the Winter.

Damprid is made for this purpose. It's a desiccant that absorbs and traps moisture. I have 3 of the smaller containers in my 36ft class A and it seems to help.

We also use damprid along with a few small trash cans filled with charcoal, we do cover ours but leave the covered vents open also..this seems to work great for us,,,upon opening in the spring, we are dry and clean.. Sad that the season is coming to an end in a few short weeks, hope all of you had a great summer.

I leave the 3 covered vents open as well. I haven't tried this but I remember someone saying that they take Salt Pellets ( Home Water Softner Type ) and a couple plastic containers with lids and drilled [4 to 6] 1/2" holes in the top and sides to absorb moisture. The salt costs about $8 for a 40 lb bag and they used about 15 lbs in 4 containers. They place them inside the bathroom cabinet under the sink and under the kitchen sink as well as on the countertop and next to the bed. It may have been on the RV Today or RV Roadtrips show.
