If you essentially refuse to open some vents for air exchange while cooking, cleaning, etc., then the dehumidifier is your only good choice. Those little buckets with chemicals couldn't keep up with the humidity I would make from cooking, showering, etc., so I would have to open two windows or vents and turn the furnace up.

Your summers are probably humid, too. Running the air conditioner (if you have one) removes humidity, and so will the dehumidifier.

I'm guessing you are on shore power, at least hoping you are, as running a gennie almost 24/7 isn't something I would look forward to.

I hope things dry out for you before the camper occupants mold.

We stay on top of moisture, by cracking a window, and running our fan a couple times a day. Now with a dehumidifier, things are improved.

I'm lucky, I'm in the California desert right now. It's overcast, breezy, and 52 degrees outside right now, with about 50% humidity. Inside the trailer, it's 66 degrees and 40% humidity inside, and I have the roof vent and a small window wide open.

That does make it so much easier to help move moisture outside, certainly easier than interior BC right now.

I hope you'll let us know how that dehumidifier works after a few weeks.
