Question Dehumidifier - Recommendation Please -

The Maytag bit the dust - that's what I get for buying on eBay - but, I paid with Paypal, so I'll probably get my money back......

What is the 'favored' brand for dehumidifying a 34' Excella 1000 - with 2 people, 7 pups, 1 cat, & 1 weasel? Translated......needs to be a good one -

jan

Danby Dehumidifier

I purchased a Danby DDR3009EE dehumidifier for use in the house, back in 2009. It has worked well, but the initial purchase price is not small. I don't remember the price, but I got it based on Consumer Reports reccomendation, and the fact that I found it on sale at a very good price. It is a 30 pint model.

Fast forward to 2010. I bought a slightly smaller (20 pint?) Danby dehumidifier for the AS, but have not yet used it in the TT. It is physically larger than I really wanted, but it is the only one that I could find on-line.

If we can get away when we plann to do so, then I will be using it for the first time in February, beginning next week

Hope that this helps.

I went to Lowes and bought the $150 one. A bit tall and heavy on one hand, but with plenty of drying power for trailer in 99% humidity South Texas. Have used it extensively at the house since trailer sold.

What am I missing? The forced air furnace seems to dry the air plenty, and it even gets too dry when it runs overnight. I
Prefer the catalytic at night, to gain humidity, and the run the furnace after showering and during the day to dry thing out.

But it is only me for the most part. With an occasional visit from by girlfriend.

I guess I just made it through my first winter without any humidity issues.

I haven't yet experienced those HIGH HUMIDITY situations endured each summer by our Southern cousins - but I suspect firing up the furnace to 'burn' the humidity inside one's AS during this season would be a bit to oppressive!...
