Airconditioners, are nothing more then big dehumidifiers. If you want to dry something out, then button it up, and turn the air down. As the air moves across the evaporator, the moisture condenses, and drains off. The AC and a couple of fans, will dry it out quicker then anything else. It works in a house, and it'll work in a trailer.

Can you advise how you mounted the filter or provide a close up picture? I plan on eliminating the factory installed pos as soon as I get our new TT hopefully next week. I have used a couple of these when we were pumping creek water at our property in NC and they worked great but I just set them on the ground.

Rig your own or follow the previous posts but what ever you do, get rid of the water filter inside the TT.

Soooo I am wondering...if you have a 50AMP unit (Dual A/C), seems like you COULD run both your furnace and your A/C (but they would be competing wouldn't they?) Still say DampRid is a better dehumidifier
