Anyone recommend a dehumidifier, for a 2018 Jayco Eagle Ht. We will be spending the winter in the NW.

We have a 306rkds 50amp

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I used a medium priced Danby from Walmart or Costco don't remember which when we were living outside Vancouver. It made a big difference.

I am a fan of www.compactappliancea.com. have bought a lot of stuff from them over the years. Decent prices, quick delivery, large selection. Juat look for ones that offer a drain hose, large capacity, and has high ratings. That way you can set it up to constantly drain.
Where are you wintering?

We live here and have them in the house and the RV. The one in the RV I have plumbed into the washer drain with the grey water handle pulled. 7 years and not mold or mildew anywhere in it. Does run up the power bill a bit but it is worth it IMO.

A 30 or 40 pint dehumidifier will work fine for your rig. Set it up in the kitchen area and it will draw the moisture out. I'd stick with the bucket that comes with it as you will probably only need to empty once a week and it will shut down when full. Adding a hose means it will need to drain into a bucket or a sink.

Hi, Zooandmrfox!

We use Powilling dehumidifier and it works for us pretty well - you can use it without a hose, since it does have an indicator to warn you when tank is full. When we are not on the road, we use it at home.

Though I need to mention, that in heavy snowing locations we add chemical humidifiers to dry out our rv, like DampRid. The dog and I will be out in a hike, we'll come back both covered in snow, so I always try to make my rv completely safe from extra moisture.
