Dehumidifiers

We still intend to use our trailer during the colder months. When we went last time the condensation got pretty bad inside especially after showers etc. Cracking the windows doesn't really help much when it is raining sideways. So I think it is time to get a dehumidifier.

Does anyone else use one?

What brand do you recommend?

How big of capacity should I get?

Thanks in advance.

They dont work well below a certain degree, I use the LG ones from home depot. Mine was great took about 3 months to get all the dampness out of my basement when I bought my condo. I like the LG ones, im not sure if they still carry them.

The temp isn't really a concern. We keep the trailer pretty warm when we are in it.

I dont like the ones lowes sells or the ones sears sells. Home depot is where I get alot of stuff and as long as you go for the middle of the line one it should be great. I got the top of the line it got rated poorly by consumer reports versus the middle of the line.

Hey Josh, Not sure if you've left for your errands yet, but here's my .02 worth. We live full time in our 5th wheel and I run a dehumidifier year round. They're not insulated well enough and will get condensation when the heat runs, esecially if you use the propane furnace. I've run a Whirlpool one for over 3 years now with no problems. I think I got it at Lowe's and have never had any issues.

I haven't left yet. I wish I could buy one on base but sadly our NEX doesn't sell one.

How loud is the one that you have?

It's not too loud. We have an electric heater with a blower and the heater is louder than the dehumidifier. A friend has one made by LG and I believe it's a little quieter. They may let you plug them in and try them at Lowes or Home Depot. It'd be worth asking.
