Why your RV needs a dehumidifier
How to mitigate moisture issues and humidity in your RV or Camper?
How dehumidifiers work
The unit draws humid air in and heats it over a warm plate inside the dehumidifier, then cools the air causing condensation which is trapped in the removable, spill-proof reservoir. Dry air is then expelled out.
- It will help to reduce mold, mildew and fungus from developing on your clothes, furniture and other fabrics.
- Your breads, boxed cereals and crackers will stay fresher, and last longer.
- You won’t find signs of rust on electronics or metal on your RV components.
- No more moldy walls or damaged wood in your RV or camper.
Also, these small dehumidifiers are the perfect answer to eliminating moisture in your RV’s basement storage compartments. Just put one inside, plug it in, turn it on and close the cargo hatch. The next morning, you’ll notice it will feel dryer. Your tools, house batteries and everything you store in it will thank you.
Our two favorite dehumidifiers
This petite dehumidifier has whisper technology has a 9V 2.5A electric input. It has an on/off switch with a power indicator light. As well, it has an indicator light to alert users when it needs emptying.
It has a manufacturer specified power draw of 22 watts. That makes it low on energy consumption so you can save on your electricity bill and also helps the environment. The water reservoir capacity is 16 ounces.
The average noise output is measured at 50.9 dB, 2.3 dB below average; making it generate less noise to provide us a peaceful night sleep at night.
We use this little guy in our fifth wheel on one of our the bedroom’s CPAP shelves or on the bedroom vanity counter. We also use it in our clothes closet to help prevent any moisture that may cause mold and mildew on our clothes and shoes. It takes up very little space. The Eva Dry Petite dehumidifier is about the size of a shoebox. It’s very lightweight and portable.
This “mid-size” portable dehumidifier is a tad bit larger than the Petite and packs a little more extraction power for larger spaces.
So, if you’re in the market of purchasing an RV, Camper or even a boat, put these on your shopping list of must haves. The small amount of money paid now for these dehumidifiers will be a huge amount of money saved later in mold and mildew induced repairs. Look at these as protecting your investment.
We highly recommend the Eva Dry dehumidifier. There are other brands out there however, we’ve found the Eva Dry dehumidifiers work best for RVs, campers and small spaces because of their size and portability.
