Eva-Dry dehumidifiers

Hi folks,
We're full time in cold weather, moisture is a problem in winter. In the past we've used Damprid jugs in several places around the camper and the hanging bags in the closets. The Damprid helped but there was a constant problem of keeping the jugs from getting knocked over.
I recently found Eva-Dry dehumidfiers on the web.
Has anyone used them?
Are you satisfied with the performance?

I'm thinking we will need a couple EV-1100 and maybe a few E-500. The small size seems great since we will have to store them in warm weather.
Thank you for your help.

Although dated, this previous thread discusses the product.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We have a small Eva-Dry unit in the bedroom and we are satisfied with it. We use a larger SOLEUSair unit in the living area that we are thoroughly pleased with (SOLEUSair CFM-40E portable dehumidifier). Both units keep the inside humidity at 35-45. If you keep it too dry damage to wood cabinets can occur.

we have three
two pint sized and one quart
less than 1 amp drawn when in use
QUIET
worked very well in combination of using vent fans during a shower and the like
we used to have a huge mechanical compressor one that was loud and pulled 12014 amps when running


well worth dollars spent

We have had an Eva-Dry 2200 since the summer of 2009. After about a year the fan started making noises typical of a fan bearing failing. Opened it up and replaced the fan with a new 92mm computer fan and it works perfectly again.

i meant 10-12 amps for the old one
i do vacuum the inlets grill about every three days because we have two dogs and for some reason the fur really likes the eva dry

i did purchase ours direct from the company and saved a few dollars,
