This is true, but it also doesn’t remove any either. The HP does remove moisture that comes from breathing, showers, etc and reduces the moisture that condenses of the windows.

....yup, some HP units can be noisy, depending on ducting, but easy to work around. We have two units--one front, one back. When we are up front, we use the back unit; when we are in the bedroom, we use the front one. When weather is changeable, we set one on A/C for daytime use, and one on heat for night time --works great!!!! As for annoying fellow campers--really???????

When I run my heat pumps in the rv you can hardly hear them running. I park in my friends driveway in Northeast Pa and he said they never hear them running. Front is 15000 and back is 13500. I plug into his electric and he told me that his electric does not go up but a few dollars. He actually showed me his bill.

Same goes for using your water pump in the middle of the night when you don't have city water to wash or flush the toilet, or your a/c in the warm months. I don't think that's a valid point in this discussion.

A heat pump (in heating mode of course) does not remove any moisture.

The only difference it makes when it comes to humidity is lower the RH% if you turn up the heat because warmer air holds more water. The air circulation from the blower(s) can help with condensation.

I would never buy a coach that didn't have heat pumps. You never know what the temps are going to be especially if you are in mountainous areas. One night it's comfy the next it's cold. I would rather use the CG electricity, which is free, than my propane the I have to pay for.
