Dehumidifier help

We are experiencing some "wet" ceilings in our camper. Its hot hot hot and humid in good ole South Carolina right now. I run the fan during shower etc. But in the morning, the ceiling and air conditioner vent in the bathroom is very wet. We need to purchase a dehumidifier. We have the Cedar Creek 33ik and I guess my question is how large of a dehumidifier do we need?

Thanks in advance

Given the size and condition of your RV, I'd suggest something in the 30 pint per day range. You don't want to get one too small. I'd also suggest getting one that you can choose the humidity setting on. One with a large capacity reservoir will increase the times between emptying, but in an RV it may not be a big deal to empty it regularly.

I recommend you get one that has the option for a permanent drain connection. I run my 30pt dehumidifier when the RV stored as well. You can get fancy and run the drain through the bottom of the unit (I did) or just run it down the shower drain.

As in how high the humidity is? Suggestions where to purchase?

I have one of the Evo-Dry electronic dehumidifiers that I bought because of size, noise, weight, cost and power consumption. These peltier types don't cut it for this application. Not enough humidity reduction/run time IMHO.
You'll need the real deal, I think Flybob has the right idea set it in the shower and let it drain out
