No more condensation in cabinets

Installed 11 of these on either side of all my cabinets and closets. Keeps the air moving so no condensation and gets warm air onto the interior pipes.
Purchased at local box store in the AV area in electrical. Normally used for HDMI cords and cables etc. Click image for larger version

Sorry, forgot to add the part about living in SW Montana. We get pretty cold and condensation can be an issue. It's got down to 30 below a couple times. Especially cooking and showering puts out a tremendous amount of moisture in the air. I got distracted trying to figure out posting the pics lol

I bought a dehumidifier for use in MA. Not only in the cabinets. Especially on the windows and running down the walls.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

I keep roof vents open year round to remove warm moist air.

We keep a couple of gun-safe dehumidifiers in our R-Pod. Once a month, we recharge them.

This is a great idea. By the way, I don't see too many people in online forums from Montana... and when I do they're usually from Missoula or Kalispell. I'm from Dillon... I'm a frequent flyer to the Town Pump in Whitehall. Just though I'd say hi.

Yeah not many of us on here. Considering how many RVs and TTs I see on the roads I'm surprised I don't see more on this forum.
The town pump is center of entertainment around here lol.

We use a couple of those plastic containers with dessicating crystals (can't remember what their called). You can find them at a dollar store easily. We also leave cabinets slightly open as well. That seemed to do the trick!
