I do not full time but on occasion we use our AS in the Summer, when we have guests or I am doing a project of sorts inside. The only issue I ran into was condensation on the metal parts of the AC when we frequently opened and closed the door with the high humidity. Other then that,good to go!

Leave fan on high in this instance. Even with dehumidifier running constantly A/C fan should always run on high well before dawn. An auto former may help but one is near TT elec system limits.

I would not run the thing full time in storage. I would consider a dehumidifier. I keep a box fan in front of a window with it on low. A couple other windows are open to circulate air. If the inner skin is cold water will condense inside the walls. If the inner and outer skins are more or less the same temp then less condensation. Keep it out of the sun as much as you can but let it sit in the sun some to dry things out. Did you get a roof over your pad yet?

If I LIVED in it in FL.....that sucker would simply run as it needed to all the time

I now use dehumidifier full time and keep things sealed up

No roof yet - next year projected
