I would guess (and that's all it is) that keeping it closed up would be better as you won't pull in moist humid air into the camper with the fan running.

I'll see your Houston and raise you one Atlanta I just leave my vent open and not running. I've never had a moister problem except when I take my sweaty self inside. When we use the trailer we run our Eva-dri. It really keeps things nice a dry and helps the AC keep things cool.

Had not thought about running the dehumidifier when camping to support the ever struggling AC's. Makes sense as moisture removal is a primary function of the AC...really do learn something from the forum every day.

We use an inexpensive Vicks Health Check Monitor to keep track of humidity. We need some humidity. But this monitor lets us know when its excessive and when it is I run fans, AC until its back where it belongs. And I find that for the vast majority of the time its fine. It might get above 50% after a shower for a few minutes of after a heavy rain. But most of the time its below 50%.

Back when there were way more Radio Shacks than there are now I bought an indoor outdoor weather station for the camper. Shows indoor/outdoor temp and humidity plus barometric pressure and some other stuff.

A little slow to read in rapidly changing situations, like coming in and turning on the a/c, but accurate. And I'm a weather buff anyway.

Like the idea of taking the guess work out of humidity level. Found a name brand digital hygrometer on Amazon, shipped for less than 10 bucks.

For those of you who use the Eva-Dry dehumidifier, which of their model numbers would work adequately for a 34-ft. Class A motorhome?

I'm not sure of the model number but mine is the biggest they offer. Works very well.

I've got the 2200 for a 21' TT. I would think the EDV-4000 would be a good choice.
