Dry Packs

Living in louisiana, and seeing first hand what humidity can do to a trailer's interior does anyone have information on dehumidifying bags, would they be useful in somthing as large as a travel traler? A major part of this traler's damage was due to lack of windows.That issue has been resolved and now that I'm starting to install the interior I can't help but think of ways of preserving it.

Get a dehumidifier and put it in the trailer a few days a month or as needed to completely dry it out, I do this the begining of every year, and when I feel it needs it.

During the storage season I keep a 110v. dehumidifier plugged in to a timer. It runs about 1/2 hour a day - more during raining seasons. A/S smells fresh each time I go in. Also put some dryer sheets in different areas. Works for bugs and deorderization.

BTW: I also plug the Univolt in to a timer also to prevent boiling off the batteries.
