Keeps humidity at a low 45 to 55%. It's only about 14 inches high and weighs less than 10 pounds.
Found it on Amazon for $75.00. I just let it drain into the kitchen sink, and leave the grey water drain open. Works great.

Can you send the link to the dehumidifier?

Tom,
Here's the link. I was wrong on the price, it's actually
$40.00 and change on Amazon Prime, including shipping. I've had ours in the AS for 3 weeks and it works fine.
Good luck.
Larry

Where the rubber meets the road...

Finally got new tires for the TV yesterday! The ride is so much better. Thanks to Phoenix for the help!

I want a dehumidifier - that looks like price is right but quality?

Most of the ones I've seen exceed 100 dollars?!

Would dehumidifier help with keeping everything from being so damp?

I've had ours for about 4 weeks, so far, it works fine. Removes about a pint a day in our 30 AS. Just remember to either dump the reservoir or drill a hole in it and let it drain into your kitchen sink.
Then, just remember to leave your grey water drain open..
Good luck!
Larry

Dehumidifier in AS. Although we don't ever winterize or store ours, between the times we use it we often just set a dehumidifier in the shower with the door open and let it drain here in deep South Louisiana. Tried running it when camping and it is in the way, heats the trailer quickly, makes too much noise, power draw eats into out 30amp limit, and can't lower humidity during normal comings and goings of RV life. Hauled it once and never again.

I like your microwave shelf (especially with the kitty beneath it). We've thought about doing the same thing, so it's great to see your picture of what it would look like. Thanks.

Hi all, we bought a few tons on stone product today after several weeks of searching for a retaining wall to support our new driveway extension for our Flying Cloud. Hope our order will next week so we can begging the stone retention wall around the driveway & rake the disturbed area before we bring her home on 6/6/14.
We also need to run electric shore power to the site to replenish the batteries & get ready for ounnm

What did you get for your trailer today?

I follow this thread regularly and have picked up a couple of good ideas. Thanks folks.

For our 1963 Globetrotter, we purchased a shower track (curtain track), eye sliders, and hooks from Vintage Trailer supply. Today I will try to modify the shower curtain to fit. Have read several posts on the Forums about doing this. Also in the box was a hubcap to replace the one that fell off and of course I needed the bird feeder too.

From another supplier we bought two new water hoses, a water bandit for unthreaded faucets (read about it here), a water hook-up stub hose, and 15 to 30 amp power adapter.

Obviously, you don't have the one I'm talking about. There is no compressor, it's all solid state, draws very little current, very little added heat and no noise, except for a small fan, which is very quiet.

Got One of These Today

Got tired of all the hi tech weather forecasting gizmos not working without wifi of failing all the time. This one looks pretty fool proof ....
