MAN it's HUMID!!

Especially down here in the South - but it can be just as bad in MO in the summer!

Anybody use Damp-Rid in their RV?
Anybody ever accidently knocked the reservoir over?

I have your solution here - I ran into this gem during a search for something completely unrelated earlier today. I have 2 on order from Amazon

https://www.eva-dry.com/dehumidifier...-dehumidifier/


How awesome can this be? No more nasty Damp-Rid containers, it is self renewing, and purported to last 10 years!

Note to folks with washers/dishwashers in their rigs - they claim putting one of these in your appliance between uses will keep the smell and mildew accumulation away.

I used the Eva dry and it worked fine but since we are seasonal I don't always get there often enough to recharge it. I finally just bought a regular electric dehumidifier and leave it running. It drains into the tub and does a great job. No for everyone I know.

Bob I would love to know how they work for you, we talked about getting something the last weekend we were out, so we bought the Damp-Rid things the other day.

That looks great. A great price for a dehumidifier also.

Vin.

It is better to go up north in the summer. I live in the place that has the worst summer weather in the country.

I bought 2 DriZAir containers and checked the humidity level yesterday in the trailer after 2 days of rain here in Orlando. The humidity was 58%, not bad but I don't think they will remove enough water in the winter and 50% is better. The only downside is the cost of crystals that will never end. Looking at electric dehumidifiers I found 2 types, the Peltier cell type which tend to be smaller. Generally reviews indicate for anything other than a small area they don't remove enough water.

The other type is the standard dehumidifier and the NewAir AD250 seems like it fits the bill. It can be setup to drain into the tub and with just an on/off switch it can be put on a timer to run a few hours a day. I estimate, from experience with my home dehumidifier, that a cycle of 2 hours on 2 hours off would be fine.

Unless its Southern Ontario! We get the pollution of all the Ohio Valley coal fired powered plants, happy to say our last coal fired plant closed 2 years ago. We split atoms now for electricity or use Sir Adam Becks invention of falling water for hydro. The smog days are bad as well 90+ % Relative humidity for the majority of July and August.
