Who's using a dehumidifier?

Hey guys. Who's using a dehumidifier in their rv and what humidity do you have it set on? I've been letting mine run on the constant setting when it's at home and I empty it 2-3 times a week. How bout you?

It get's pretty dry here in NE Oklahoma during the winter.

Actually, it can get so dry that the cabinetry starts to pull apart and you can develop little gaps in the joints. The other problem I have is that I may have gotten a little aggressive when loading up the RZR-s and hit one of the lower kitchen cabinets and scuffed it up. I'll fix both issues when I redesign and rebuild the lower kitchen cabinets.

Ya that's kinda why I'm tryin to find out what I should set it at. Don't want the cabinets comin apart or nothin.

Definitely gotta watch the cabinets when loadin up! That's why I went to a separate garage. Load up and roll out. Don't have to fold anything up and the mess stays in the back.

I would think that 40-50% might be good just to keep the wood somewhat moist. What's your relative humidity right about now?
