Don't sweat it.

Given our northwest wet climate, we use this dehumidifier in the stern to avoid the
moisture build up that can trash the rear compartments. You'd be amazed how
much water is pulled out. It goes into storage when we head south.

You can get smaller ones at Sears, but they do take up space. We use one at the cottage on Vancouver Island and have it hooked up to the plumbing drain so we don't have to empty it three times a day.

We use on as well.. just a bit smaller. When we wake up the windows are dry and the bucket is full. You have to be careful and just put it on low and maybe crack a small window just a bit or you will wake up with a sore throat. I had a cab over once that we slept in over the weekend up in Tahoe.. while we were nice and warm overnight the next morning everything was wet and one of my cabinent doors just split apart from the moisture.. everything was wet. I really learned my lesson.

Yup, but as I write, all the windows and mouldings are free of moisture and the humidity is down to 70%.
