Built-In Dehumidifier

Hi, we are full-timers/working professionals living in the Seattle area. We have an 03 Suncruiser 33U. We love our coach and enjoy our weekends tromping around Puget Sounds fabulous campgrounds pretty much year round. We had no idea that moving from a 3,000 sq ft home to a 300 sq ft motorhome would be such an ideal lifestyle for us. Anyway, I have a suggestion to put to Winnie and don't see a place on their website to post it. It's a simple suggestion that maybe no one ever gave any thought to.

We use two Eva-Dry Dehumidifiers. One is the small 1100 model which does well and the other is the larger 2200. Both are a good size for a coach and are easily kept out of the way except for the electical chords.

I am curious as to why, since these appliances are so helpful in dealing with humidity, that they don't seem to be offered as "built-ins". The annoyance of having these stupid electrical chords on the floor could easily be solved if they were built in. Since thinking about it, I will no doubt figure out how to do this. Nonetheless, I still think it would be a great option to have. Maybe there haven't been too many choices in this size up to now.

Has anyone ever seen a place where someone could suggest to Winnie that they offer a "built-in" dehumidifier?

Looks like a great product. We need a couple of the 2200s. We full time in Pennsylvania so it's cold outside and damp on the inside.

I use Damp Rid which helps a little but it's very slow and if one of the pots gets knocked over we have a mess to clean. I do like the Damp Rid bags which we use in the closets.

Thanks for posting.
