Dehumidifier Reccomendation

We have a 38el Champagne - 42' and need a recommendation for the appropriate size for a large fifth. Also a recommendation on what brand is best for an RV? Thanks in advance for all your help and support.

Most residential dehumidifiers are manufactured by only a few companies ( although they may be rebranded under many names). I suggest a good 30 pint residential model. You should try to get one that has the ability to connect a drain hose so you don't have to continually empty it. I do not recommend the solid state ones as they work OK, but do not have the ability to remove much water ( a few oz vs pints). I ran the drain hose through the base of my shower and out the underside of the unit. You can run into a low drain such as a shower drain, but the removed water can contain rust.

EVA Dry 4000 Rotary Desiccant Model. No compressor, less noise. Able to dehumidify over a much broader range of temperatures. Keeps our Silverback between 45 and 50%

It's the only way to pull large quantities of water out of the air in a very short period of time.
