For right now just going to run it "full bore". I ordered it for a good price. From "Air & Water" with a 15% discount code, $143 delivered. Hopefully it will help with the sky high humidity we are having this year. The size and performance looks just about perfect for my little trailer.

Fascinating thread! We have often debated and discussed this.

I live in semitropical Louisiana and have long used a dehumidifier in my trailer. It really helps, both summer and winter.

I originally bought it to keep mold from growing while the trailer is parked. I have also found it very useful while camping to keep things comfortable. I think it is better than trying to install a second air conditioning unit. I have found that my air conditioner is quite adequate while the dehumidifer is in use. I am much more comfortable in a dry and slightly warmer atmosphere than a cooler but clammy one which always feels, well, cool and clammy.

Chief: I think it will make a difference in your AS. You will have to report back once you get it up and running!

After reading this thread a while back, I ordered the dehumidifier in #19 and have been using it since. We use it while parked to keep it dry and while camping to keep up comfortable. i have found that running it along with the AC in the evening is very beneficial to our comfort. Without it, we would run the AC, but the compressor was not always running so we would wake up with a damp feeling. After using the dehumidifier and the AC, we are much more comfortable sleeping and our beds feel fresher when we go to bed.

I found the same thing.

I have full timed for a year and a half so far and counting. I live in NW Florida and it is humid almost all the time. I bought one for the winter last year and it helps with the humidity. During the summer the AC is always on so the inside stays around 20-30% humidity (according to my temp/humidity gauge I have). During the winter if I don't keep the dehumidifier on I am usually around 60% humidity with it off and with it on it is around 30%.

I don't sleep with it on because I store it in my bedroom, but I turn it on during the day/evening which helps out a lot with humidity in my trailer.
