Dehumidifier

Just ordered a Mini Dehumidifier for my Travel Trailer. Anyone else use one in their camper?

I just order one myself, so interested in seeing if it works and what others do for the humidity especially when using the heater in the trailer.

I've had 30 pint dehumidifier for about 3 weeks now.
I'm amazed at the amount of moisture it collects and the increase of the comfort level in the RV.
Over the weekend with Sandy knocking on the NC coast, I had to empty the 30 pint bucket 2x's in a 24 hr period.

we would use one if we ever could have electric hookups when camping.
but out here in California, less than 1% of our state park campgrounds, have any hookups.
so, we dry camp almost all the time, so a dehumidifier would be useless.

Get a big one

We keep our Grey Wolf 28BH bone dry. We're full timers so always hooked up to shore power. When we moved in we tried the small dehumidifiers from Evadry. They don't work worth a dang. We needed a new full size anyway so we bought the Danby Premier 30 or 40 pint. Cant remember which. The best feature of this model is that it blows the dry air out the top instead of the back. IMO this circulates the air better after bouncing off the ceiling. Plus when we hang our towels or need to dry some clothes on my custom closet rod across the back of the TT the air going straight up really helps. We're in Cincinnati so there is humidity but we keep the trailer about 35-40% all the time. In the summer, make sure you don't use the Microwave, A/C, and dehumidifier at the same time. Tripped a breaker a couple times since the dehumidifier pulls 15 amps on high.
