Yes it is crazy country.

So I did end up buying a smaller dehumidifier at Lowe's that works really well and only runs on 3 to 4 amps so that was the selling point for me.

It does what we need it to do. Still going to take the camper in next week to get the AC looked at though because today went out to closed up camper and it was 101 in there but the humidity was around 40%. So we know the camper is sealed well. So for some reason when the fan runs on the AC and the condenser is off it doesn't just circulate the inside air. It must suck air in from the outside somewhere.

Will report back if we find anything out of if others have suggestions that would be great.

If we could only build a large pipe from the southeast to the south west and put a pump and fans on it to send all the excess moisture that way. Maybe that would be a good make work project for all those unemployed currently.

Humidity inside is hovering around 65 to 80 depending on when the condenser kicks on. Currently humidity outside is 90% so yes it is ugly out. The problem I have is how to keep it down around 50 inside the trailer? The condenser lowers it almost to a comfortable level then it hits the temp and then the fan just circulates the humidity back up. So it feels cool but very sticky. Just very frustrating.

What can a newbie do? Should we use AUTO? Should we not? Buying a dehumidifier is probably in our future but I would of thought for such a small living space the ac unit would be able to manage.

Any help or comments are greatly appreciated.

We're also from Iowa. New Hampton to be exact and spend our winters near Port Aransas, TX. In a 40 foot Cedar Creek 5th wheel and use a 30 pint dehumidifier. If we're not running the AC or furnace much, we can take out as much as a gallon in 24 hours. We never open any windows.
