Humidity and moisture ideas

I have heard that moisture inside a motor home can be detrimental. I am looking for suggestions or experiences on how to keep moisture low inside my 2004 Adventurer. I am not talking about leaks I talking about humidity generated inside such as showers and wet clothing / towels.

This is excellent advice. The A/C dehumidifies, but in the cooler months you are not using it. A dehumidifier is a must. I use one religiously, and folks I have camped with in the spring and fall also now have one. Had a friend with a virtual rainforest on a particularly damp fall day. Campers don't breath, so humidity builds up quick.

If you use a dehumidifier long term it is covenant to put it in the tub or shower, (leaving the shower door open), and allow it to drain into out of the RV through the gray tank dump valve....(no need to monitor/empty it).
