well, I like the idea of having a humidifier on but now the problem of emptying the water.....If I use a small water pump on a float connected to a hose that goes outside it should as long as the TT is connected to shore power drain the cumulitive water from the air each time it trips the float. The big question: has anyone done this? I live in the north east and do not have that issue but we are planning to move down south in a few years and this will become an issue.

Are vents are always open unless we are traveling. I put on vent covers so do not have to worry about rain.

if you need to use a dehumidifier you could put together a drain system with a pump, float and hose and hope it doesn't fail.
OR as I mentioned earlier, you can simply set the dehumidifier in the tub, shower, or sink...turn it on....let the water drain down the drain into the grey tank... leave the grey tank valve open... and not worry about it.

Like the tub idea for draining the dehumidier, but concerned about how isolated it will be from the rest of the TT. I have it in the main hallway in the center of the unit.
If you move to the south, you will have NO lack of humidity !!!!
